8-2-8 Urgent Care is a Professionally Staffed STD Clinic in Oceanside Offering Same Day Results

8-2-8 Urgent Care provides comprehensive, STD testing services in a discreet and convenient manner for patients who want to ensure their sexual health. Because more than half of Americans will contract a sexually transmitted disease in their lifetimes, staying on top of your sexual wellbeing is more important than ever, and 8-2-8 Urgent Care is here to make it as easy as possible. You can receive confidential, same-day STD testing with no appointment necessary

According to the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA), the statistics on STDs in the U.S. are staggering:

  • 1 in 2 sexually active people will contract an STD by age 25
  • Nearly 20 million new STDs occur every year
  • Half of the people who contract STDs are between the ages of 15 and 24
  • Only about 12% of people in that age range receive STD tests each year
 

Anyone who is sexually active should be concerned about their sexual health. Left unchecked, STDs can wreak havoc on your reproductive system. This is true for both men and women.

What Are the Most Common STDs?

There are dozens of different STDs, some more common than others. They all fall into one of two categories: bacterial or viral. Here are some of the most common STDs:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Genital Herpes
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Genital warts
  • Mouth and throat infections
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis
  • Viral Hepatitis (Hepatitis B)
 

8-2-8 Urgent Care is one of the first urgent cares nationwide, to offer on-site same day results for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. We have partnered with Cepheid to bring our patients accurate molecular testing. You can have results in as little as 90 minutes.

The Need

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Chlamydia (CT) and Gonorrhea (NG) are the most commonly reported sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). If left untreated, complications can include pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, proctitis, urethritis, complications during pregnancy, and infections in newborns.

The 2015 updated CDC guidelines now recommend the following:

  • Women: Annual CT/NG screening of women under 25 or older women with risk factors. Patients with positive results should be retested after 3 months
  • Heterosexual Men: CT screening should be considered in high prevalence settings
  • MSM: CT/NG nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT) is recommended NAATs are recognized by the CDC as the most sensitive tests.
