What are the STI test options in Salinas,CA?

Roughly 8 miles off the central California pacific coast, just east of Monterey Bay, sits the largest city and seat of Monterey County—Salinas. With rates of sexually transmitted diseases on the rise all over the state of California, it’s not shocking to find the same trend to be true in the Salinas area.

In fact, according to a 2018 Report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), rates for gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia have gone up for the fourth year in a row. According to Dr. Gail Bolan on behalf of the Sexually Transmitted Disease Prevention Division of the CDC, “After decades of decline in STDs, in recent years we have been sliding backwards.”  

You can paint the same picture in Monterey and Santa Cruz County as well. Monterey saw an approximate 20-40% increase in all STD/Is from 2016 to 2017, and in Santa Cruz there was a 46% increase in chlamydia between 2010 and 2017. Perhaps more concerning, in that same time frame members of the LGBTQ+ community in the region saw a nearly 500% increase in syphilis and gonorrhea. Medical professionals don’t know what is behind the hike, but possibilities include more people being tested than ever, the hookup culture brought on by dating apps, and increased infection influenced by the opioid epidemic. 

In Salinas, there are a number of options for testing. Two of them are: Planned Parenthood on Main Street, or the John Xxiii Aids Ministry on Baldwin. Many locations offer free STD testing under specific conditions (for eligible patients). The typical wait time for test results is 1-2 days, but sometimes it takes longer. There is also a Quest Diagnostic on the north side of town off of Natividad Rd and another on the opposite side, just south of East Romie Lane.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Salinas 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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Salinas, 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 Salinas, 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.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Salinas, CA

Sexually transmitted disease rates are up across the nation and this includes in the state, and the city of Salinas. Law makers are hoping that requiring schools to teach teens about the dangers of engaging in unprotected sex, along with all of the various ways STDs are spread will finally begin to lower the rate of infection.

It has long been known that high schools typically have a problem with Herpes and the best way to prevent the virus from spreading is to ensure teens and parents know how to protect themselves. Since it can be spread through casual contact, regular Herpes testing in Salinas can prevent it from becoming a problem in area high schools.

Ensuring that teens and their parents are also aware of the potential dangers of HIV and how it is spread is also a required part of the mandates concerning sexual education classes, and health officials are hopeful this will help slow down the increasing number of residents who are testing positive for the potentially deadly disease. Regular HIV testing in Salinas is quick and painless, and it is an important part of taking care of your sexual health.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Salinas, CA

While the area may be mainly agricultural STDs are still on the rise, and there are several demographical factors contributing to the problem.

Many families are still recovering from the formerly stagnant economy, and find it difficult to afford regular testing. This can be especially true for residents that depend on small family farms for their income. Even though they may live outside of the city, their children are still exposed to the potential risks common in schools.

The area also has a large migrant population that makes it difficult for health officials to stress the importance of regular testing, and language barriers are also a common problem. Many Hispanics also have a deep mistrust of government officials, and will not discuss any potential health risks with outsiders.

Salinas and the surrounding area sees thousands of tourists each year and many of these visitors are also infected with a sexually transmitted disease, and often pass it on to full time residents.

Some of the other factors that are causing the STD rates to climb include cultural and religious beliefs that make it difficult for teens and young adults to discuss any problems or get testing. Misconceptions and stereotypes have lead some residents to believe that they are never at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease or made them too ashamed and embarrassed to be seen at a community health center. There is also a shortage of clinics in the area, which makes it easy to keep putting the checkup off due to an unwillingness to spend all day standing in line.

Better Sexual Health in Salinas, CA
