Welcome to Private Testing Center
North Carolina is the third highest state for chlamydial infections in 2015.
Wake County is reaching new heights in the health field, and not in a good way. In 2015, Raleigh set a new record high for syphilis rates and cases, according to the county’s Health Services Department. Wake documented 245 cases of syphilis then, just one year after recording a high of 178 cases in 2014.
The growing popularity of dating and hookup apps makes the diseases harder to contain, according to Sue Lynn Ledford, director of Wake County’s public health department.
“In the past we could contain things geographically. We could say ‘OK, we have an outbreak in North Raleigh or South Raleigh’ and hone in on those places,” Ledford said. “Now with the new dynamics of people hooking up through social media … there’s no single point of contact where you can go and focus on prevention efforts.”
“The good news is, if you get informed, knowledge is power. Then, you can reduce your risk and not get infected,” said Evelyn Foust, the head of the Communicable Disease Branch of the North Carolina Division of Public Health. “Talking with your children, talking with your teens, talking with the young adults in your family about sexually transmitted diseases is a critical conversation that’s a must-have.”
Left undiagnosed and untreated, STDs can wreck havok on your body, leaving permanent damage that often carries no outward symptoms of any problems. But even if the person doesn’t know they are infected, they’re quite capable of infecting others, further perpetuating the epidemic.

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.
