What are the STI test options in Palatine,IL?

Palatine, Illinois belongs to the great county of Cook, which is the 2nd most populous county in America right afteryou guessed itLos Angeles County. Being a burb of Chicago means Palatine shares its STD reporting rates. Which have been a bit high in recent years to put it lightly.

For 2016, the chlamydia rate of suburban Cook County was 461.1 per 100,000 people tested. Those diagnoses were primarily found in young women aged 15-24 years, as is trending nationwide.

It’s important for women to get regularly screened as chlamydia is often asymptomatic, can lead to infertility if left untreated, and is easily treated if caught early.

2016 rates for gonorrhea in the Chicago Metro area were 112.7 per 100,000 people. Primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis for Cook County that year was 8.3 for every 100,000. In 2017, Chicago reported 743 new cases of HIV, with 84.2% of them being in males, and 15.8% found in women. 171 people in Chicago living with HIV passed away in 2017. The Chicago Department of Public Health seeks to combat this issue by offering preventive clinical services, disease testing, and treatment at no cost. Call to find out if you qualify for free STD testing or visit one in person. 

For affordable STI screening in the Palatine area, there is an Alexian Brothers Medical Group, a Quest Diagnostics, and Immediate Care Palatine & Family Practice all off the 14. There you can find tests for chlamydia, herpes, HIV/Aids, gonorrhea, syphilis, and hepatitis. Some clinics can see you the same day and may be able to provide results in as little as 1-2 days. 

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Palatine clinics with our easy-to-read chart. 

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
Your trusted source for comprehensive and unbiased STD testing locations, statistics, and resources. Backed by board-certified physicians and aligned with CDC guidelines, we're committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information to empower your health choices.

What STD tests do I need?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC) recommends screening for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, herpes 1, herpes 2, and HIV for both men and women. In addition, the CDC suggests women get screened for trichomoniasis.

SaferSTD recommends searching for locations that offer a 10-test panel which tests for the most common bacteria and viral STDs in the U.S. with additional premium add-ons like early HIV detection, if needed.

When should I get tested?

The CDC2 provides detailed STD testing information as to when you should get tested. In summary, you should get tested today if you are sexually active, never been tested before, have had unprotected sex in the past, or if you exhibit symptoms. 

According to the World Health Organization3, the majority of STI cases reported every day, more than one million, are asymptomatic; another reason to get tested today.

You should get tested again in 90 days to rule out STDs that have specific exposure waiting times, including HIV.

How are STD tests done?

STD testing can be a quick and simple process, depending on the type of test you choose and where you get tested. Some may require an oral or genital swab, a urine test or blood sample, or a physical exam to check your genital area for signs of an STD.

SaferSTD has identified preferred providers that require only a urine test, a blood sample, or both without a physical exam.

How fast do I get my results?

The speed at which you receive your STD testing results depends on where you get tested. Before you choose your location, find out how long testing results will take. 

At-home STD testing results are usually 3-5 business days, depending on the manufacturer of your test. You also need to take into account the amount of time it takes to receive the test or pick one up, perform the test, and ship it back, before the lab can analyze your results and report back to you. 

If you test at a public facility such as a neighborhood clinic, you may have to wait a week, if not more for the results, which could delay treatment. If you test through a private facility, they have the fastest turnaround within 1-3 business days. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Palatine, IL?

How much will STD testing cost in Palatine, IL?

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Palatine, IL

Your location is part of Cook County and an area that has more cases per capita of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia than any other county in the country, except for Los Angeles county. This is according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They report just over 900 cases of syphilis, 11,000 cases of gonorrhea, and 39,000 cases of chlamydia.

This shows an increase in the area for syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. What can you do to protect yourself? You can help by getting information about STDs and getting tested.

As Palatine High School and William Rainey Harper College are located in your village, you can get information about STDs at these schools. You could go to a counsellor or nurse to get information. While STD education is now a part of middle school curriculum, STDs still remain a risk in the United States and especially Cook County.

You can be tested for chlamydia and other STDs. If a test shows an infection, you can get treatment.

A chlamydia infection can show no symptoms, or symptoms can develop weeks after you get the infection. If symptoms do occur, they can include burning at urination or vaginal discharge in women. For men it can include discharge from the penis or pain and swelling of one or both testicles. In women the infection can spread and lead to infertility.

A place to get information about testing in the area is Planned Parenthood and the Cook County Department of Public Health North District Office that is located in Rolling Meadows. You can get HIV testing, chlamydia testing, syphilis testing, gonorrhea testing, and a hepatitis B vaccine.

Another place that can help is the Resurrection Health Care Holy Family Medical Center Infection Control Department. It is located in Des Plaines.

The Links-Northshore Youth Health Service serves people 25 years old and under. It is another place that can help you. It is located in Northfield. No one is denied services there.

STI Testing Resources in Palatine, IL

Let’s look at how sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing resources can be available for you in the general area. There are several resources available. Remember that STIs are infections you get by having sex. These include gonorrhea and chlamydia. These infect your sexual and reproductive organs. HIV, hepatitis B, and syphilis cause general body infections and are also STIs. You should get tested and know your status. If you know your status you can do something to prevent the spread of STDs.  Remember also that STDs affect all ages, races, and genders. Get tested regularly and get treatment when needed.

You should also know that the person you are having sex with does not have an STD. Use protection against infection. Use a condom. Get tested. It does not matter if you are a girl or a guy. This can include manual sex (using your hands), oral sex (using your mouth), and penetrative sex (putting things inside someone).

You might wonder what you can expect during a visit to a clinic that deals with STIs. You might be asked to fill out forms so a counsellor or doctor can help you better. The medical staff will know more about what would be the next thing you should do.

After you fill out paperwork someone will see you and talk about the best options for you. You should be honest when you talk to a health care provider. They can best help you then. Put your health first. During an exam you could provide specimens such as a urine sample or blood work. These will be sent to a lab. Only you will get the results.

For men it can include discharge from the penis or pain and swelling of one or both testicles. In women the infection can spread and lead to infertility. Let’s remember that HIV is a virus that causes an infection. It is sexually transmitted. Over time an HIV infection can cause AIDS. AIDS is a condition where your immune system fails.
