According to the California Department of Public Health, California ranked first among all states in 2014 for the total number of cases for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and congenital syphilis. Chlamydia remains the most common disease, with the highest reported rates among young women. Gonorrhea and early syphilis rates continues to increase across all regions of the state. In fact, one in four persons will have a sexually transmitted infection during their lifetime.
So if you’re wondering if you have been exposed to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or if you’ve had sex without a physical barrier (i.e., condom, dental dam), we recommend that you request a house call through WhiteCoat and add the ‘STD Testing’ add-on service to your cart to protect yourself and your sexual partner’s health. It will help bring peace of mind and/or help you (and your partner) get treatment.
Getting tested through WhiteCoat is fast, easy and confidential.
