Bakersfield STD Testing

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a major public health concern, and Bakersfield, California, is no exception. According to data from the California Department of Public Health, there were 3,508 cases of chlamydia, 924 cases of gonorrhea, and 31 cases of syphilis reported in Kern County in 2021.

Fortunately, there are many resources available for STD testing in Bakersfield. The Kern County Department of Public Health offers confidential testing for all types of STDs at their clinics, but scheduling an appointment could take days in potentially critical situations. Priority STD Testing offers same-day testing at several private labs in the Bakersfield area, with results in up to 3 days. No appointments are needed and screenings are confidential.

In addition to public health clinics, many private clinics and healthcare providers offer STD testing services in Bakersfield like Planned Parenthood. Priority STD Testing is the leading provider of private STD testing in Bakersfield, with affordable test options, treatment services, and counseling for positive results.

It is essential to get regular testing done if you are sexually active, especially if you have multiple partners or engage in unprotected sex. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends annual testing for all sexually active individuals under the age of 25 and for older individuals with risk factors such as multiple partners or a history of STDs.
