What are the STI test options in Yuba City,CA?
Yuba City, the county seat of Sutter County, is under siege by an STD outbreak. The county had spikes in chlamydia and syphilis diagnoses. New cases of primary and secondary syphilis doubled between from 2013 to 2017 and chlamydia diagnoses nearly doubled during the four years.
During the same time, the number of gonorrhea diagnoses jumped from 72 in 2013 to 139 in 2017. Although the number of HIV infections isn’t as high as other STDs in Sutter County, the infection rate of 2016 was four times the 2012 rate. The rise in HIV diagnoses stresses the need for STD education, testing, and treatment.
The Sutter County Department of health is taking a proactive approach to the alarming rise in STI rates by offering public options for affordable testing and treatment of STDs.
There are a few STD testing locations in Yuba City and over a dozen in the nearby counties of Yuba, Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, Colusa, and Butte. The nearest is Ampla Health at the Yuba City Medical and Xpress Care. STI screenings for teens and young adults are also available at their Pediatrics Center on Market St.
The Planned Parenthood at the Yuba City Health Center near the intersection of Palora Ave and Franklin Ave offers confidential HIV testing. Low-cost options may be available through the Sutter and Yuba Public Health Departments. Other nearby places include a few Peach Tree Health clinics and the Colusa Indian Community Health Center.
Some clinics offer free STD screenings. These locations may not provide testing for all STIs and might require proof of income before scheduling your appointment.
