Thousand Oaks CA STD Testing

The United States is witnessing an unprecedented increase in STD cases, and Thousand Oaks, California isn’t exempt from this. In 2019, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)¹ reported more than 2.5 million chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis cases in the country. 

In addition, 2018 STD Surveillance Report by the California Department of Public Health² revealed that California, Thousand Oaks included, recorded a 265% increase in syphilis cases (25,344), a 211% increase in gonorrhea cases (79,397), and a 56% increase in reported Chlamydia cases (232,181). To slow down the spread of these infections, sexually active adults in Thousand Oaks must prioritize frequent STD testing.  

A bigger problem is most STDs are asymptomatic, which means you can contract and transmit them unknowingly. Most patients may not know they’ve contracted an infection until the disease has caused far-reaching damage to their sexual health. This is why you should undergo professional STD screening regularly. 

Luckily, it’s easy to get screened for sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia, HIV/AIDS, HPV, and hepatitis. With Priority STD Testing, you will get fast, convenient and affordable STD screening in Thousand Oaks, CA.

To get started, you only have to place an order for your lab test via our website. Next, visit any of our testing centers for your screening on any business day. You don’t have to book any prior appointments for your lab test. The process is fast, and most patients are in and out of our STD testing centers in under half an hour. In addition, we have several care counselors on standby who are ready to assist you when needed.
