What are the STI test options in Redding,CA?

Redding is the largest city in the Shasta Cascade region and, as such, serves as the seat for Shasta County. Health officials for Northern California expressed concern and frustration over rising rates of sexually transmitted diseases in the Redding area. In 2015 alone, they reportedly had a rate of 115 out of 100,000 people living with HIV. 

According to the data report put together by California for 2017, there were 571 new cases of chlamydia in Shasta County.

Putting their rate at 319.9 per 100,000 people tested. For gonorrhea in 2017, they reported 200 new outbreaks. Placing the rate at 112.0 per 100,000 people. Primary and secondary syphilis rates were also up with 29 new diagnoses in 2017. That gives Shasta County a rate of 16.2 per 100,000 people tested. No new cases of congenital syphilis were reported in 2017.

If you need to get tested and are in the Redding area, here are some affordable options. There’s a Planned Parenthood located on Bechelli Lane. Call before you visit to ensure they are open; most HIV and STD testing will be covered affordably. Women’s Health Specialists provides STI testing for all genders at their clinic on Victor Avenue.

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.

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 Redding, CA

While Chlamydia rates are still below state averages as of 2015, the same is not true for Gonorrhea. Since 2012 the infection rate for Gonorrhea has been above state averages, and by 2015 it was nearly double. This is particularly alarming considering the small city’s location in the northern part of the state. Its more rural location has given many residents the mistaken belief that this will help prevent STDs from affecting them.

With the county health department declaring that the high Gonorrhea rates classify it as an “outbreak” it has never been so important for residents to get tested for all STDs on a regular basis.

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea is more prevalent in teens and young adults, but older residents are finding out that they are also at risk. Syphilis incidents are also rising, especially among older males. In fact the majority of primary and secondary Syphilis incidents occur in men ages 25 to 44. Adding to health officials concerns is the fact that HIV/AIDS diagnoses are also starting to increase in frequency.

  • In 2015 the county reported a gonorrhea rate of 189.8 compared to the state average of an estimated 125.1 per 100,000 residents.
  • The Chlamydia rate for the county in 2015 was reported at 354.8, compared to 210.2 in 2010.
  • From 2014 to 2015 the Syphilis rate for the county nearby doubled.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Redding, CA

In response to the rapidly rising STD rates the state recently took action in an attempt to slow and eventually stop the spread of these transmittable diseases. In 2016 all public school districts are required to use the new state approved curriculum in their sex education programs.

No longer are school districts allowed to use only abstinence based material. It must now be medically accurate, and most important pertain to students’ lives. State officials realize that teens are engaging in sexual activity at a younger age, judging by the abnormally high pregnancy rate, and ensuring that the information they receive is relevant to their lives is one of the first steps in combating the spread of all STDs.

This means that students will now learn about the importance of always using protection every time they engage in sexual activity. While abstinence will still be taught as the best method of preventing unplanned pregnancies, teens will learn that this cannot prevent the spread of all STDs. Discussions on dating and relationships, regardless sexual preference will also be discussed, along with the importance of STD testing.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Redding, CA

Situated in the northern part of the state, one reason being blamed for the city’s high STD rate is its rural location. Not only does this mean fewer community STI testing centers, but it is also giving residents a false sense of security when it comes to their sexual health. Many people simply believe that this is actually helping to protect them from sexually transmitted diseases.

The area’s rapidly rising infection rate shows this not to be the case, especially after the high Gonorrhea rate prompted health officials to label it as an epidemic. Simply because the town is located away from larger cities and has a smaller population does not mean that residents are not at risk for contracting a sexually transmitted disease.

The small city is located on the Sacramento River which is a popular destination for tourists, especially in the summertime. Turtle Bay and the sanctuary are also located nearby, and this also brings in visitors from around the county. Some of these tourists can already be infected with a sexually transmitted disease without even realizing it, and this means that they can also easily pass it onto to local residents. Without regular STD testing, everyone in Redding is potentially at risk for contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
