Treatment is available for those who turn out to be HIV-positive.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Pomona, CA

Primary and secondary Syphilis diagnoses are rising, especially in older Caucasian males, and this is particularly alarming to state and county health officials since this sexually transmitted virus was thought to be well on its way to be completely under control.

It is not just the reappearance of Syphilis that has local officials worried, but also the growing number of teens and young adults who are still testing positive for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. The statistics for the past two years not only show that these two STDs percentages are higher than state averages. While Los Angeles County does cover a large part of the state, this is no reason that it and the city STD rates should be so much higher.

  • Between 2005 and 2014 the number of men diagnosed with primary or secondary Syphilis rose from a rate of 20 to an estimated rate of 50.
  • In 2014 there were over 54,600 positive Chlamydia diagnoses.
  • Over 10,000 men were diagnosed with Gonorrhea.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Pomona, CA

The state of California has now made it mandatory that all public schools include medically accurate and comprehensive sexual education classes in the curriculum. While students can still opt out of these classes with a parent’s permission, the state is hopeful that this will be one of the first proactive steps taken to slow the spread of STDs.

The rate of STDs in the city and state is at an alarming high, and much of this is due to a lack of education. Without the proper education students do not realize that not all STDs are spread strictly through sexual activity, and that HIV is still a potentially deadly disease even with advances in medicine.

Research has shown that when teens have access to necessary information they are better aware and able to protect themselves. STD rates in these areas generally fall, along with the number of teen pregnancies. While conservative leaders might disagree with the new state mandate and prefer to promote abstinence only education, everyone agrees that regular Herpes testing in Pomona, especially for high school students is important.

Regular HIV testing in Pomona is also critical for continue good health, even though many people now feel like this disease is no longer a life threatening problem.

 

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Pomona, CA

The demographical makeup of the city plays a large role in the STD rate, and this does include its location and tourist attractions.

Even with the influx of visitors each year, many residents still do not feel like there is any risk. Misconceptions regarding the medical advances and treatments available for HIV/AIDS are greatly exaggerated, and it is still one of the leading causes of death in American.

Many officials blame the growing number of positive Syphilis diagnoses on intravenous drug use, an increasing problem in older Caucasian men. Adults are also living longer and staying sexually active well into their “golden years”. Not only does this put them at a greater risk to contract a STD, many don’t realize that they might be putting their health in danger.

Other demographical factors that are causing STD rates to soar, include language barriers and a lack of affordable testing.
