What are the STI test options in Skokie,IL?

The village of Skokie, Illinois belongs to the great county of Cook. Cook County is the 2nd most populous county in America right afteryou guessed itLos Angeles County. Being a suburb of Chicago means Skokie shares their STD reporting rates. Which have been a little high in recent years.

For 2016, the chlamydia rate of suburban Cook County reached 461.1 per 100,000 people tested. Those diagnoses were largely found in young women aged 15-24 years.

That seems to be a nationwide trend. It’s important for women to get regularly screened as chlamydia is often asymptomatic and can lead to infertility if left untreated. 

2016 rates for gonorrhea in the Skokie area were 112.7 per 100,000 people. Primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis for Cook County that same year was 8.3 for every 100,000. In 2017, Chicago reported 743 new cases of HIV. With 84.2% of them being in males, and 15.8% found in women. 171 people in Chicago living with HIV passed away in 2017. The Chicago Department of Public Health seeks to combat this problem by offering preventive clinical services, disease testing, and treatment at low costs. Call to find out if you qualify for free STD testing and ask what proof you will need to bring with you to your appointment.

For affordable STI screening in the Skokie area, there is a family clinic located on Skokie Boulevard. Ultra Med Urgent Care on Dempster street offers HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis testing. They’re open Monday through Friday and Saturdays as well. InOut Labs is also located on Dempster Street. Their services include comprehensive STD panel, HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes, chlamydia, and hepatitis B. 

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

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 Skokie, IL?

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.
