According to the Center for Disease Control, around 19 million cases of STDs are diagnosed annually including cases many in Upland. STDs such as HIV, syphilis, hepatitis, herpes, gonorrhea, and chlamydia do not discriminate. If you believe you may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, it is vital that you be tested as quickly as possible. At Health Testing Centers, we strive to make testing for STDs as hassle-free and private as possible. There is no need to make a face-to-face visit with your healthcare provider or stand in line at a local clinic. The first step to receiving peace of mind regarding your sexual health is to speak to one of our caring, professional nurses.
There is no need to delay receiving the testing you need to put your mind at ease. At Health Testing Centers, we value your privacy and your desire for reliable, confidential STD test results.
We offer convenient STD panels, Level I and Level II that test for multiple STDs. These panels are a convenient way to test if you have engaged in high risk behaviors even once and are not sure which type of sexually transmitted disease you may have been exposed to. There are also tests available for specific STDs.
Gonorrhea: Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection with symptoms that can manifest in the genitals, anus or throat. Gonorrhea increases your risk of contracting other STDs like HIV.
Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2): A incurable viral STD spread through exchange of fluids commonly controlled with medications.
Syphilis: Approximately 35,000 Americans are diagnosed with syphilis every year. Left untreated, syphilis can cause serious damage to the heart, nervous system and brain.
Chlamydia: Chlamydia is the most common of all STDs. Left untreated, Chlamydia can cause PID and increase your risk of contracting HIV. Because Chlamydia is often asymptomatic, many public health officials recommend sexually active individuals be tested for it once a year as a matter of course.
Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C: sexually transmitted infections caused by a virus that often displays no symptoms.
HIV: If left untreated, HIV develops into AIDs, an invariably fatal disease. Many public health officials recommend that all sexually active individuals between the ages of 18 and 64 seek HIV testing at regular intervals.
Although rates of both syphilis and gonorrhea are low in terms of percentage of the overall Upland, CA population, they illustrate a stubborn degree of stability in the number of cases. When antibiotics first came on the scene, scientists hoped that both of these sexually transmitted diseases would be totally eradicated in just a few decades. Yet, they persist in Upland, in CA and nationwide. Upland's skyrocketing Chlamydia rates echo a state and national trend. Although the CDC speculates that some of the reason for this is due to better screening, they contend that higher infection rates are also to blame. Nationally, Chlamydia rates are three times higher in women than men and eight times higher for African-Americans than for whites. When it comes to other forms of sexually transmitted diseases, Upland mirrors the national data. Women are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with herpes. New diagnoses of HIV-AIDS remain very low, although males are still more likely to contract this condition. In addition, acute hepatitis (hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C), has only been diagnosed in a handful of Upland residents in the past few years.
