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.

Chesapeake is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia with its own health district, which is part of the Eastern Health Region. Except for a dip in early syphilis cases in 2018, Chesapeake has seen chlamydia, gonorrhea, and early syphilis infections increase every year between 2015 and 2019.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia diagnoses in Chesapeake increased over 6% in 2019, which was nearly identical to the 6.5% increase the city saw in 2018. Chesapeake accounted for over 10% of the Eastern Health Region’s recorded chlamydia infections in 2019. The region reported a 9% increase overall, with chlamydia diagnoses more prevalent among women. Nearly 64% of the region’s total were female cases, while males comprised about 36%. Young adults aged 20 to 24 represented the age group with the highest number of chlamydia diagnoses in the region, accounting for 39% of its 2019 total.

Gonorrhea

Chesapeake’s gonorrhea infections jumped more than 25% in 2019, marking the fourth consecutive year the city has seen this number rise. Although the increase was marginal in 2018, gonorrhea diagnoses have gone up more than 78% between 2015 and 2019. The Eastern Region also saw gonorrhea cases increase by more than 17% in 2019 and once again claimed the top spot for having the highest number of cases among the state’s five health regions. The Chesapeake Health District, which only includes the City of Chesapeake, ranked 10th among all other health districts statewide for its gonorrhea infection rate in 2019.

Gonorrhea diagnoses in Chesapeake, 2019
*Percent change compares the 2019 rate to the 2015 - 2018 average annual rate.

Syphilis

Although Virginia recorded a 4% drop in early syphilis cases in 2019, Chesapeake noted an increase of over 6%. Early syphilis cases include all early latent, primary, and secondary syphilis diagnoses. Despite Chesapeake’s increase, the Eastern Health Region saw early syphilis cases drop by nearly 7%. However, Chesapeake only made up about 2.5% of the state’s 2019 total, while the region still represented more than 31.5% of the total. Early syphilis infections in men accounted for nearly 88% of the region’s reported cases in 2019, and about 23% of the region’s cases were among the 25 to 29 age group.

Undiagnosed STDs can seriously harm your internal organs and even cause death. You can still pass your STD to your partner(s), even if you have zero symptoms. The only way you can be sure you’re STD-free is through testing, which is why numerous facilities in and around Chesapeake offer free or low-cost STD testing to the communities they serve.
