What are the STI test options in Santa Ana,CA?
Santa Ana has some problematic STD rates among youth: in 2016, the rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea for youth aged 15–19 were 1,572 and 198, much higher than the Orange County rates for that age group. This is probably due to lower-income youth having less access to health care and sex education. Health officials are working to remedy this problem through educational programs.
STD rates in Santa Ana are also high, at 20.6 cases per 100K people in 2016.
Fortunately, there are a number of clinics across Santa Ana, including some focused on the LGBTQ community that offer free STD testing for HIV only. The Orange County Health Care Agency, on 17th St, provides testing and treatment for all STIs.
They also have counseling available, and can anonymously tell a patient’s sexual or needle-sharing partner that they have been exposed to HIV. Her Choice Women’s Clinic, on Central Ave, and Planned Parenthood, on 17th St, test for all STDs and can treat all of them except HIV.
