What are the STI test options in Paramount,CA?

Currently, there are nearly 70,000 people living with HIV in Los Angeles County and nearly 2,000 new diagnoses are made each year. The county also experienced 275,000 cases of Chlamydia, Syphilis, and Gonnorhea in 2016.

In Paramount and Los Angeles County, those aged between 15-24 are most likely to contract Chlamydia and Gonnorhea, and African American Women are six times more likely to be diagnosed with Syphilis than white women. 

These statistics make Paramount an area where residents are at a higher than average risk of contracting STDs and HIV.

Instances of Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonnorhea, and HIV are becoming ever-more frequent in Paramount, which has led Health Officials in Los Angeles County to encourage sexually active residents to seek regular STD and HIV tests.

The increase of STD frequency in Paramount and the worrying statistics that indicate high rates within certain demographics have led health officials to introduce initiatives such as free HIV tests and free condoms, and implement educational programs. These programs aim to encourage safe sex and educate residents in Paramount about the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases.

If you are in need of an STD test there are a number of public and private clinics in Paramount to choose from. Some public clinics you can consider are St Johns Well Child and Family Center (Dominguez High School Center), Wesley Health Centers (Bellflower Clinic), and Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (Planned Parenthood Basics Lakewood).

Public clinics often offer free STD testing services but in some cases, these clinics have long waiting times and patients may need to be uninsured to receive state-funded treatment.

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 Paramount, CA?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Paramount, CA?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

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. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.
