Welcome to Private Testing Center
Nevada ranked 21st among 50 states for number of HIV diagnoses in 2015.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, right? Well, not if it’s an STD. Many STDs show absolutely no symptoms, but inside your body they actively work to destroy your immune system, and shut down your organs, nerves and muscles. Left untreated, they can cause permanent bodily harm or even death.
The Southern Nevada Health District is reporting a significant spike in sexually transmitted diseases from 2015 to 2016. Health experts point to a variety of factors, including more young people moving to Las Vegas, more young people finding it acceptable to have unprotected sex, and the rapid rise of dating and anonymous hookup apps.
“We’re seeing an increase in how people are able to connect with each other for sexual activities,” said Marlo Tonge with the Southern Nevada Health District.
Tonge says if you only have one partner, you should be screened once a year. If you have multiple partners, you should be screened every three to six months.
“I don’t consider (a condom) birth control,” said Dr. Dale Carrison, chief of staff at University Medical Center. “I consider it infection control. You get a new generation, and they don’t see these ads, and they’re going to have sex.”
It seems he and other experts are onto something. Young people ages 15-24 account for half of all newly reported STDs. Health officials say people need to have honest discussions with their partners about their sexual history and practice safe sex.

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.
