What are the STI test options in San Jose,CA?
The rate of chlamydia in 2017 was 55.2 cases per 100,000 people and the rate of gonorrhea reached 190.3 cases per 100,000. That was a 9% increase from the prior year for chlamydia and a 16% increase for rates of gonorrhea.
But what does that really mean? In 2017 over 300,000 cases of the most common sexually transmitted diseases – syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia combined – were reported across the state.
The numbers have been steadily rising over the past couple years. The 2017 data shows an increase of 45% since 2013.
San Jose has many private and public testing options to choose from and the STD Control Branch aims to reduce transmission through education and assistance throughout the state, along with periodically offering free STD testing. Due to the varying dates and times, this might not be the best option if you need to be tested now.
Testing locations include the Gardner Health Services lab on East Julian Street and the Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center of Silicon Valley on The Alameda.
