Welcome to Private Testing Center
Arizona is ranked 15th among 50 states for number of HIV diagnoses in 2015.
When it comes to the three most common sexually transmitted diseases in terms of bacterial infections (chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis), Arizona has two cities that stand out above the rest: Show Low and Tucson.
Though Tucson is the second largest city in the state, it is the second most sexually-diseased city in Arizona, beating out Phoenix.
Provisional results for last year show 108 cases of syphilis, 93 of which were diagnosed in men, according to county records.
While that was three fewer cases than 2015, cases reported by women last year at least tripled, increasing from “less than six” to 15. Of the 15 syphilis cases reported in women last year, 29 percent of the patients said they used internet dating sites. As of 2015, Arizona ranks 17th highest in syphilis rates among 50 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Many STDs do not have warning signs, so it is best to get screened regularly if you are sexually active. Seven common signs that may indicate its time to get tested are:
-Pain during intercourse
-Sores or bumps near or on the genitals and mouth
-Unusual discharge or odor from the genitals
-Itching, swelling or pain around the genitals
-Disturbances and changes to the menstrual cycle
-High fevers, fatigue and nausea

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.
