What are the STI test options in Modesto,CA?

California is known for high STD rates, but that’s partly misinformation. Some of California’s largest cities have very high rates, but California is a big state with a lot of variety. Modesto is a California city with relatively low HIV rates.

In 2015, there were 558 people living with HIV or AIDS in Stanislaus County, with a prevalence rate of 130 per 100K people, well below California’s rate of 376.

But don’t get smug, Modesto. Your bacterial STD rates need some work. In 2017, 2,537 people were diagnosed with chlamydia in Stanislaus County, at a rate of 460 per 100K people. It’s under California’s rate of 552.2, but still needs to come down.

The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 139.6 and 21.9. For syphilis, Stanislaus County ranks 9th in the state. Health officials say that people have become lax about using protection.

Modesto has some STD-testing clinics that can help you. The Stanislaus County Health Services Agency provides STD testing in a few locations around Modesto. Planned Parenthood is located on McHenry Ave. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale.

FPA Women’s Health, on Coffee Rd, also does STD screening. Keep an eye on the community calendar to see if you can find free STD testing events, especially during STD Awareness Month.

Local and state authorities have mandated the addition of sexual health education courses into the public school curriculum. This is an attempt to ensure that each child is given the facts about the dangers of unprotected sex with regard to unwanted pregnancy and STD infection. The classes are offered just prior to the age at which some may begin to experiment with their sexuality. Students will know where to go for a Herpes test or HIV testing in Modesto upon completion of the classes.

Health department professionals, health care providers and public interest groups are also making an effort to provide additional information and educational opportunities for the greater public by sponsoring informational sessions and distributing literature. They also sponsor public service announcements which are broadcast over the air. It is a bit harder to reach those who are in the highest risk groups because many of them do not get the same amount of exposure to public offerings.

Pregnant women are now routinely tested for STD infection as a part of prenatal health care procedures. This helps to identify whether or not a woman has an STD and is vital in protecting the unborn child from infection at the time of birth.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Modesto, CA

This region of the state has a high number of residents who live below the poverty level and many have not finished their education through the public schools. Drop out rates are high and there is a lack of knowledge about the signs of STD infection and where to go if a problem is suspected. Those with limited finances may not be able to afford quality health care for testing and treatment of an STD. This can lead to increased spread of the disease, and often by persons who are not even aware that they are infected because some STDs may have few or no symptoms at the initial onset. While there are free STD testing centers available for those who meet the income guidelines, there may be instances when the funding resources become depleted and there is a waiting period until the next funding cycle replenishes.

Through careful analysis of the testing data, professionals have identified certain groups who are at the highest risk of being infected with specific sexually transmitted diseases. This is helpful in targeting the right populations for education about certain types of STD transmission. Focus is placed upon prevention, what signs to look for and where to go if you suspect that you have an STD.
