San Diego HIV Testing

Who should get tested for HIV?

According to the CDC, everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. However, those who have unprotected sex, share needles, or have been diagnosed with another STD should get tested more often. In San Diego, this recommendation is particularly relevant due to the city's diverse population and its proximity to other cities like Coronado, National City, and Chula Vista, where HIV prevalence may vary.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for HIV is crucial for both individual health and public safety. Early detection can lead to early treatment, which can significantly improve long-term health outcomes and reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to others. According to the CDC, undiagnosed HIV contributes to nearly 40% of ongoing transmissions in the U.S. Thus, testing is a critical step in controlling the spread of HIV in San Diego and surrounding areas.

HIV testing options in San Diego, CA:

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

Urgent care and walk-in clinics offer convenient HIV testing services. These include Silver Strand Urgent Care in Imperial Beach and East County Urgent Care in El Cajon. Both clinics have high ratings and short wait times. They also provide same-day and next-day testing appointments, which can be conveniently booked through Solv’s website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers are another reliable option for HIV testing. They can provide regular testing as part of routine health checks. If you have a primary care provider in San Diego, consider discussing your testing needs with them.

Free STD testing and community health centers

Community health centers and free STD testing clinics are essential resources for those who cannot afford testing through other means. These centers provide free or low-cost testing services to the community.

At-home testing

At-home testing kits are also available for those who prefer privacy or cannot visit a clinic. These kits can be ordered online and come with clear instructions for use and results interpretation.

Prevalence of HIV in San Diego

HIV prevalence in San Diego is a significant public health concern. According to the CDC, San Diego County reported over 13,000 people living with HIV in 2018, a number that has likely increased in recent years. This prevalence is higher than in nearby La Paz and Yuma counties, but lower than in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

Risk factors related to HIV in San Diego

Risk factors for HIV in San Diego include unprotected sex, sharing needles, and having another STD. The city's diverse population and proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border may also contribute to the spread of HIV. It's important to note that everyone, regardless of their risk factors, should get tested.

Other STDs in San Diego

In addition to HIV, other STDs such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and hepatitis are also prevalent in San Diego. These STDs often co-occur with HIV, making regular testing for all STDs crucial for those at risk. The same testing locations and resources mentioned above can also provide testing for these STDs.

HIV Test FAQs

  • Who should get an HIV test?

    Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should take an HIV test at least once in their lives. Some people are more likely to get HIV and should be tested more regularly. Those who have had sex with an HIV-positive partner, those who inject drugs, sexually active gay men, and those who have unprotected sex are all included. You should get checked every 6-12 months if you have any of these risk factors.

  • How do they test for HIV?

    Antibodies created by your body in reaction to the virus are examined in HIV tests. A blood test or a sample of cells obtained from the inside of the cheek can be used to do this. After that, the sample is transported to a lab, where a technician will look for antibodies.

  • How long should I wait to get an HIV test?

    It can take a long time for your body to build enough antibodies for an HIV test to detect the illness if you become sick. It may take 3-12 weeks for your blood to contain adequate antibodies. Even if you have HIV, you could have a negative test result during this time.

  • How long will I have to wait for HIV test results in San Diego?

    Because the sample must be sent to a laboratory for investigation, most HIV test results might take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. On the other hand, some San Diego clinics or doctor's offices may offer rapid HIV testing, which can deliver a diagnosis in as little as 20 minutes. Rapid HIV testing involve a little sample of blood or fluid obtained from the mouth. You'll need a follow-up blood test to confirm the diagnosis if a fast test comes up positive.

  • How much does an HIV test cost?

    A variety of factors influence the cost of an HIV test, including the type of test you receive, the location where you are tested, and whether or not you have health insurance. HIV testing may be provided for free or at a low cost by some clinics or health authorities. If you're a college student, you might be able to get free HIV tests through your school.

  • Is HIV testing covered by my insurance?

    The majority of insurance coverage cover HIV testing. The Affordable Care Act mandates that all new health plans provide free HIV testing for those aged 15 to 65. If you have any doubts about what is covered under your individual health plan, you can always call your insurance company or go to their website.

  • Where can I get an HIV test in San Diego?

    Many San Diego health clinics, doctor's offices, and the health department offer HIV testing. Some pharmacies with on-site clinics may also be able to give HIV testing. Even though some clinics accept walk-in appointments, making an appointment ahead of time will save you time and ensure that you receive your test on the same day.

  • Can I get a same-day appointment for HIV testing?

    Yes, Solv offers same-day and next-day HIV testing appointments. We collaborate with thousands of healthcare providers across the country to make it easier for everyone to access the medical assistance they require quickly and conveniently. On our website, you can choose a physician near you and make an appointment right now.

  • How can I book an HIV test on Solv?

    Simply type "HIV test" and your location into our website's search box. You'll find a list of providers and their available appointment times on the next page. Fill out the form to arrange an appointment at a time and location that is convenient for you. Make certain that your appointment is for "HIV testing."

  • Can I test myself for HIV at home?

    Although there are several home HIV tests available, not all of them are accurate or FDA-approved. For a home test, you'll need a swab from the inside of your mouth or a blood sample taken with a finger pricker. If you get a positive result on a home HIV test, you should see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.
