Palo Alto STD Testing

In a 2018 sexually transmitted diseases surveillance report released by the Centers for Disease Control, it was revealed that Santa Clara County in California has one of the highest rates of primary and secondary syphilis in the entire United States with a whopping 291 cases per 100,000 residents (for reference, Los Angeles County holds the top spot by a wide margin at 2,350–more than 1,200 more than #2 Cook County, Illinois).

It may come as a surprise, but syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases and sexually transmitted infections often display no symptoms whatsoever. This means you can become infected and pass on the infection to sexual partners without ever knowing you’ve contracted it in the first place. The only way to know for sure if you’ve contracted syphilis or another sexually transmitted disease is to find a trusted provider of testing services and get tested. Fortunately, it doesn’t get any easier than Priority STD Testing. Get tested today and have your test results in as little as 24-72 hours.
