What are the STI test options in San Marcos,CA?

Known for its scenery that includes the nearby hills and lake the city of San Marcos, California is also becoming famous for its number of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, C, Herpes, Syphilis and HIV cases reported each year, along with the fact that there are only a few STD clinics in the area. Due to the long lines at the San Marcos, CA free STD testing centers many residents are choosing to put off this important checkup, even though they know that the number of incidents reported is rising each year. Now you can easily schedule private STD testing with one simple phone call and only spend 15 to 20 minutes at a nearby lab. This way you can take care of your sexual health, and still have plenty of time for fishing on the lake.

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 San Marcos, 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 San Marcos, 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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in San Marcos, CA

According to the recent statistics released by the CDC and San Diego County Department of Health, this small city is seeing a surge in its STD rates. Over the past twenty years the number of sexually transmitted infections reported in the county has been rising at a rate that alarms many health officials.

Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis rates are all rising, along with the number of new HIV cases reported each year. Statistics also show that it is no longer just teens and young adults that are at risk, but older residents are testing positive for a sexually transmitted disease more often. This is especially true concerning HIV/AIDS and Syphilis rates among residents over the age of 24.

Rates for Chlamydia and Syphilis are currently above state averages, with the sharpest increases occurring from 2013 to 2015. Syphilis incidents in men saw the largest increase, along with the number of males who tested positive for Gonorrhea. While Gonorrhea rates in men are still below state averages, health experts expect this to change in the next two to three years.

Statistics also indicate that African American and Hispanic residents are more than twice as likely to contract a sexually transmitted disease, especially Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. When it comes to Syphilis all residents are at risk, especially males ages 25 to 44. Some of the other statistics that highlight the growing STD epidemic include,

  • Women ages 20 to 24 present the greatest risk for contracting Chlamydia.
  • In 2015 Gonorrhea incidents were twice as likely to occur in men as women.
  • Men 25 to 44 years old are three times more likely to test positive for Syphilis than males in other age brackets.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in San Marcos, CA

In response to the rising STD and teen pregnancy rates the state passed a bill that requires all public school districts to provide medically accurate and comprehensive information in their sex education programs. While parents can “opt” their child out of these classes, health officials are hopeful that the majority of students will participate in the new program.

Abstinence will still be briefly covered and students will be taught that it is better to wait to engage in sexual activity until they are older, but they will also learn about the risks and responsibilities that come with being sexually active. This includes learning about all of the ways that STDs can be spread, along with the importance of being tested for the infectious diseases on a regular basis.

Students will also learn about the importance of always using protection if they do decide to become sexually active. Condoms and other types of contraceptives will be discussed, and local officials are hopeful that this will help to lower the abnormally high teen pregnancy rate. Since students will learn that not all STDs are spread through sexual activity, local and county leaders hope that more residents will understand how important regular HIV testing in San Marcos is for their continued good health.

Regular Herpes testing in San Marcos will also be encouraged, and this simple procedure could help stop the spread of the virus through area high schools. While it is too soon to tell if the new sex education programs are having a positive effect on the STD rates in the area, the number of teen pregnancies reported in the first half of 2016 has started to decrease.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in San Marcos, CA

There are several factors being blamed for the rising STD rates in the city and county, though many of these are being addressed. The addition of comprehensive and medically accurate sex education programs is one positive step, along with the fact that the county does offer free STD testing for lower income residents. This was started in response to the rising infection rates, along with the fact that testing is no longer covered under Medicaid.

Even though this is a start towards addressing the various reasons why STD rates are rising, it doesn’t resolve all of the problems. Language barriers are making it difficult for health officials to reach everyone in the community, and this means that a large percentage of residents still do not understand the importance of regular testing.

Thanks to advances in health care adults are staying sexually active longer, and many of the area’s older residents are not familiar with the risks that are often associated with their behavior. Some also mistakenly believe that an STD could never happen to them. Until these and other factors are resolved the STD rates for the city are expected to continue to rise.
