What are the STI test options in Whittier,CA?

Los Angeles County is a densely populated area. Southern California is a fast-paced, fun place to live, and Whittier is no exception. With the growing population, Whittier has seen an increase in syphilis cases over the last decade.

After a few years of reported decreases, gonorrhea and chlamydia are also now on the rise. County officials state that the best way to stay on top of your health, other than using protection, is to get regular screening for STDs.

For 2015, Los Angeles County and the Whittier area show a rate of 171 per 100,000 people infected by gonorrhea. The same year, the chlamydia rates were at 555 for every 100,000 people. For primary and secondary syphilis, the rate has climbed to 15 per 100,000. This may sound low, but it is a 30 percent increase from numbers reported in 2014. 

The reported cases for the new diagnoses of people living with HIV in LA County are continuing to show a steady decrease. Medical professionals believe this is thanks to regular health screenings, prevention education, and treatment. 

If you’re in the Whittier area, there are a few options available to you. Planned Parenthood on Greenleaf avenue has you covered for the following STI tests: chlamydia, bacterial vaginosis (BV), genital warts, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis, herpes, and more. If you’re uninsured you may qualify for financial assistance, give them a call to confidentially discuss your eligibility. For free testing, keep an eye out on community calendars, or check out local events at Whittier College especially during STD awareness month in April.

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

Statistics reported is based on publicly available data sources such as CDC for Los Angeles County, CA. Data is normalized to accurately report Los Angeles County STD Breakdown.
statistic

The CDC and Los Angeles County Health Department recently released statistics that show the number of STDs reported in the city are rising, and have been for the past twenty years. While the statistics do include the entire county and LA metro area, they still affect residents in the small outlying city. Currently the rates for all of the sexually transmitted diseases are higher than state averages, and health officials do not expect this to change anytime soon.

Chlamydia rates in teens are rising at a slower rate, but this is countered by an increase in cases reported in women ages 20 to 24. While Gonorrhea rates have been decreasing in females, the same is not true for men. African American and Hispanic males are among those with the highest risk of contracting the infectious disease.

Men are testing positive more often for HIV and Syphilis, especially among males over the age of 24. The statistics also show that all men are equally at risk, regardless of their sexual preference. There has been an increase in Syphilis incidents in women in the last five years, and this indicates that the sexually transmitted disease is spreading faster than previously suspected.

With residents of all ages, genders and ethnicities testing positive more often for one or more of these sexually transmitted diseases it has never been so important for residents to be tested on a regular basis. Here are some of the other statistics that highlight the growing STD problem.

  • From 2006 to 2015 the Gonorrhea rates for the city and county more than doubled.
  • There were a total of 57,134 cases of Chlamydia reported with over 60 percent occurring in women.
  • In 2015 there were 92 cases of primary and secondary Syphilis reported in women, compared to 1,495 in men.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Whittier, CA

In response to the rising teen pregnancy and STD rates the state recently passed a bill that now requires all public school systems to provide students with comprehensive and medically accurate sex education classes. Referred to as the “California Healthy Youth Act” the new law standardizes sex education so students across the state can receive the information they need to protect their sexual health.

While this won’t be an immediate fix for the high STD rates, it will take school districts time to implement the classes, it is being seen as a positive step towards lowering the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported annually.

There are some problems with the new law and this could determine how effective the new standardized curriculum is. Some of the rural school districts simply do not have the funding necessary to implement the classes, and the state cannot afford to help. There are only a few appointed officials tasked with overseeing the numerous public school districts and this means that there is no way to be sure that everyone is following the new curriculum.

Until every student receives comprehensive sex education they will continue to be at risk for contracting a STD. This makes it even more important for everyone to participate in regular HIV testing in Whittier, regardless of past sexual activity. The same is true regarding regular Herpes testing in Whittier, and the simple procedure could finally prevent the virus from spreading to others.

Sexual Health Education

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Whittier, CA

Now that all public schools are required to included comprehensive sex education to all of their students, starting in the 7th grade, health officials are hopeful that this will help to lower the county’s high STD rates. While this is a positive step towards lowering the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported each year, there are still issues that need to be addressed.

Recent budget cuts due to the state’s 2008 financial crisis have forced many STI clinics to close their doors. This has resulted in long lines and crowded waiting rooms at the few that are still open, and many residents prefer to risk their sexual health rather than spend all day at the clinic. Changes in federal law is also making it difficult for lower income residents to afford the STI testing fees since it is no longer covered under Medicaid.

Advances in health care is making it possible for older residents to stay sexually active longer, and this is increasing their risk for contracting a STD. This is also being blamed for the rise in sexually transmitted diseases that are reported in adults over the age of 40.

While some steps are being taken to help lower the STD rates, until all of the issues are resolved the city can expect to see the number of reported cases continue to rise.

Before you head downtown for a day of sightseeing and shopping it is important to take a few minutes to think about your sexual health. It is understandable if you don’t want to spend hours waiting in line at a community health center, and now there is a faster and easier way to take care of your sexual health. With one simple phone call you can schedule confidential STD testing and only spend a few minutes at a local lab. This way you can take responsibility for your sexual health, and still have plenty of time to enjoy a day in the city.
