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.

In 2018, the three most commonly reported STDs in Boulder County and its seat Boulder were chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The county reported infection rates per 100,000 residents of 433.8 for chlamydia, 79.3 for gonorrhea, and 2.8 for primary and secondary syphilis.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia was the most frequently reported STD, and Colorado’s total number of cases reached 29,124 in 2018. That was a 7.9% increase from 2017’s total of 26,995. The state’s 2018 rate of 511.4 per 100,000 was lower than the nation’s 539.9.

Females accounted for 649.4 per 100,000 cases, nearly doubling their male counterpart’s rate of 373.6 in 2018. Likewise, adolescent and young adult females remained the most commonly reported groups, with the 20-24 year-old category reaching the highest rate of 3,586.8 per 100,000, followed by the 15-19 age group’s 3,098.5.

Gonorrhea

As the second most commonly reported STD, the total number of gonorrhea cases in Colorado reached 8,894 in 2018, a 4.9% increase over the previous year. Accordingly, the state’s rate of 156.2 per 100,000 represented a 3.5% growth rate from 2017’s 151.1.

Males outpaced females with recorded incidents of gonorrhea in every age group except that of 15-19 year-olds, in which gonorrhea cases among females were nearly twice the number reported in males.

Gonorrhea Cases and Rates by Sex and Age Group in Colorado, 2018
All rates are per 100,000

Syphilis

Colorado had a total of 337 primary and secondary syphilis cases in 2018. This equates to a rate of 5.9 per 100,000 residents and represents a rate increase of 13.8% from 2017.

While the 20-24 age group represented the highest rate of 3.8 per 100,000 for females, males far surpassed females in every age category. The highest reported incidents occurred in the 25-29-year-old category, with males accounting for 76 compared to five cases among females. This translates to a rate of 34.5 in males, compared to 2.4 in females. The second highest age group were 30-34 year-olds, where the rate of 26.6 per 100,000 among males outnumbered the 2.3 for females.

When individuals don’t realize they have an STD, they may inadvertently pass them on to their partners. Without prompt treatment, some STDs, chlamydia especially, can cause irreversible damage to the reproductive organs, resulting in infertility. If you’re a sexually active adolescent or adult, one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of infections is to obtain regular STD testing. Boulder and the surrounding areas offer a number of low-cost testing options for those who are uninsured or don’t want to be tested by their regular physician.
