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.

Cases among women have been historically higher, with more than twice as many female diagnoses compared to those reported among men. Despite a drop in diagnoses in 2016, spikes in 2017 and 2018 resulted in 2,117 chlamydia cases in females for a rate of 493.1. Male cases saw the same dips and spikes, ending with 887 cases in 2018.

Ventura County had 281 total syphilis cases in all stages in 2018 and three congenital syphilis cases, which corresponded to a rate of 25 out of 100,000 live births.

There were zero cases of P&S syphilis among women in 2014, while there were 48 cases among men that year. After seeing a decrease in cases two years in a row, diagnoses among men shot back up to 48 in 2017, then jumped again in 2018.

Syphilis Cases and Incidence Rates in Ventura, 2014–2018

All STDs can be managed with appropriate treatment, and many can be cured. However, they often don’t show symptoms and go undetected, leaving people at risk for serious health-related complications. Long-term STD infections can result in organ damage and infertility, along with an increased risk of catching HIV. Resources in Ventura and throughout Ventura County provide low-cost or free STD testing, so residents can learn whether they have an STD and need to seek treatment.
