Chicagoans are Three Times more likely to contract Gonorrhea
Chicago’s young adults have some of the highest sexually transmitted disease (STD) rates in the nation. Chicagoans are twice as likely to be infected with chlamydia and nearly three times more likely to have gonorrhea then residents living in other areas of the U.S.
“One of the trends we’ve been seeing over the past few years is that there are younger individuals that are being affected, especially by chlamydia and gonorrhea,” said Dr. Michael Angarone, physician at Northwestern’s STI clinic. “We have to look at what we are missing in terms of education about prevention from STIs.”
People aged 13 to 24 account for approximately 60 percent of gonorrhea cases and nearly 67 percent of chlamydia cases. And the problem is particularly apparent in Chicago, which had the second highest rate of both these STDs in the nation, second only to Philadelphia.

Chicago Area STD Testing Centers
Private Testing Center strives to offer affordable, discreet and convenient testing in an effort to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.
The CDC estimates there are 20 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year, with 50% of those new cases falling on young people ages 15 to 24.
In one study, they examined 1,000 adolescents and found that 1 in 4 of them had at least 1 common STD, and 15% were infected with more then one. Most participants in the study showed no symptoms and didn’t even realize they were infected. Even among people who only had one partner in their lifetimes, 1 in 5 still had an STD — but of those with three or more partners, 50% had an STD.
The good news is that many STDs are curable, and those without a cure are treatable. You owe it to yourself and others to find answers and protect yourself. Private Testing Center has 1500 locations nationwide in one of the largest laboratory networks anywhere in the world. Same day appointments are available with scheduling as soon as 15 minutes after calling. The average lab visit lasts just 15 minutes and some results are available the following day.
