At-Home STD Testing

Testing for STDs at home is safe, convenient, and private. Performed regularly, it can help you stay healthy and avoid unknowingly transmitting STDs.

You have many options for at-home STD testing. The best at-home STD tests are FDA approved and evaluated for safety and accuracy with fast result turnaround times and support from health care professionals.

At-home STD testing kits should include instructions for collection and test registration, along with materials such as containers and swabs to collect and send your sample to the lab. Most at-home STD tests offer results in about five days through a secure online patient portal.

From 2017 to 2018, cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis all increased slightly in Baton Rouge. Chlamydia and gonorrhea had seen a slow increase over the past years, but syphilis cases dropped from 2016 to 2017 before rising again in 2018. During this same period, diagnosis rates for both HIV and AIDs decreased in the area.

Chlamydia

In 2018, more than 5,400 diagnoses of chlamydia were reported by the Louisiana Department of Health for Region 2, which includes East and West Baton Rouge and other surrounding parishes. Cases of chlamydia were reported by women more than men: Only around 31% of the documented cases were associated with male patients during 2018 in the region.

In 2018, the Louisiana DoH noted that 77% of chlamydia cases in the area were associated with African American patients who make up 55% of the city’s population. In general, the Baton Rouge area follows other states and metro locations for age trends when it comes to chlamydia, which tends to be a young person’s disease. The majority of cases in Region 2 in 2018 — close to 70% — were documented in instances involving patients under the age of 25.

By far, the hardest hit parish in the area when it comes to chlamydia is East Baton Rouge. This one parish alone accounted for 74% of the chlamydia cases recorded in Region 2 in 2018.

2018 Chlamydia Diagnoses in Baton Rouge, LA Metro Area

Gonorrhea

In 2018, gonorrhea cases in the region around Baton Rouge were split fairly evenly between males and females. Males accounted for 51% of the new diagnoses. Aside from that, though, gonorrhea follows chlamydia for most other trends.

African Americans accounted for more cases than any other race or ethnicity in Region 2, and 86% of the new cases in 2018. People under the age of 25 were responsible for 55% of the area’s new diagnoses in the same year, and East Baton Rouge Parish reported 82% of the new cases in Region 2 during 2018.

Syphilis

Syphilis in the Baton Rouge area tends to impact a wide age range. In 2018, the Louisiana DoH reports for Region 2 indicate around a third of cases were for people under the age of 25. Around 42% of the cases were related to people aged 25 to 34, and 21% of new syphilis diagnoses were for people 35 and older.

Again, African American people accounted for many of the new cases recorded in 2018 for the area — around 74%. And East Baton Rouge Parish led the numbers with 81% of the new cases for Region 2 within that year.

Learning you have an STD can be scary, and many people avoid finding out for that reason. But even though STDs may not always come with symptoms or discomfort early on, they can lead to serious health consequences down the road. The best way to protect yourself from such issues is to get tested if you’re sexually active. Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas include a number of clinics and agencies that offer free or low-cost STD testing.
