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.

San Pedro is a community within the city of Los Angeles in Los Angeles County, where barriers in health equity and methamphetamine use contribute to the county’s increasing STD burden. The LAC Department of Public Health reported over 96,000 total cases of STDs in 2018, including 66% chlamydia, 26% gonorrhea, and 8% syphilis infections.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia diagnoses in LA County increased by almost 6% in 2018 after growing over 8% in 2017. Of the 2018 chlamydia cases, 58% were among females, leaving about 42% among men. The 15 to 24 age group accounted for the largest portion of chlamydia infections, especially among women. Nearly 59% of female cases were within this age range compared to about 34% of male infections.

Gonorrhea

LA County’s documented gonorrhea infections increased only 5% in 2018 after increasing nearly 17% in 2017. Gonorrhea tests have shown much higher numbers among men than women in LA County. Male cases comprised about 71% of the total in 2018 compared to about 29% in female cases. Although the 15 to 24 age group continued to have the highest case count compared to other age ranges, infection rates dropped for both sexes in 2018. Females in this age range saw a nearly 3% drop, and the decrease among males was slightly over 3%.

Syphilis

Despite a much lower number of primary and secondary syphilis cases compared to chlamydia and gonorrhea, P&S syphilis infections in LA County have increased at a higher rate. Between 2014 and 2018, chlamydia cases increased 25% and gonorrhea cases increased almost 81%, but P&S syphilis cases nearly doubled with an increase of 98%. P&S syphilis diagnoses were much higher among males than females in LA County. In 2018, male cases made up 90% of the total, with only about 10% among females, but infections among women are increasing faster. From 2014 to 2018, P&S syphilis diagnoses among women increased nearly 352% compared to an 86.5% increase among men.
