Why Use An At-Home STD Test Kit?
For years, you needed to visit a clinic to screen for sexually transmitted infections. Sitting in a waiting room, having awkward conversations about your sex life and paying for pricey tests is unpleasant enough for many people to avoid testing completely. This leads to undiagnosed and untreated infections and a greater risk for you and your loved one’s health. Test on your terms today with myLAB Box.
Home lab testing is the next step in the evolution of healthcare. With at home STD test kit options, you set your own schedule and test whenever you want for whatever you need. That means you can test from your own home, a friend’s house or at school and get the same results you would receive from a clinic. You won’t need to go through the hassle of making an appointment at a clinic or doctor’s office in order to find out whether or not you have an STD.
Taking a test at home is also less expensive than taking a test at a clinic or doctor’s office. Home test kits are roughly half the cost of testing at a clinic or a doctor’s office and do not require insurance. myLAB Box tests are available online and in select stores, including Walmart and Target.com.
You can also receive your results faster if you use an at-home STD check testing kit. If you test in a clinic or doctor’s office, it can take weeks for them to get your results back from the lab, review your results, and contact you to discuss your health. But if you use an at-home STD test kit, your results will be emailed to you within two to five days.
myLAB Box offers a number of different at-home STD test kit options so you can test for many different types of STDs from the comfort of your own home. Some of the STDs you can test for at home include:
- Hepatitis C
- Mycoplasma genitalium
You can either choose a testing kit that is designed to test for a specific STD or choose a more comprehensive testing kit that is designed to test for multiple STDs.
Taking an STD test at home is simple. Here’s what to do:
Step 1: Order
Select and order your test online through the myLAB Box website. All of our home tests ship free in discreet packaging, so your neighbors and roommates won’t know you are receiving an STD test kit in the mail.
Step 2: Test
It only takes five minutes to complete your test but the contents will vary depending on what you’re testing for. All tests are performed by collecting a urine sample (men), a vaginal swab (women) or a blood sample (via finger prick for select tests). Every package will contain all of the tools you need to collect your sample, including:
- The urine, vaginal swab and/or blood sample collection kit
- Simple instructions
- A postage paid return envelope to send your samples in for testing
Follow the instructions to collect and send in your sample. It only takes a few minutes, so you can complete this test whenever it is most convenient for you.
Step 3: Get results
When you send your samples in, lab technicians will test them in the same type of facilities that medical clinics use. That means you will have the same accuracy as a clinic but at half the cost and no inconvenience. Results are available 2-5 days after you’ve sent the samples, are stored in a secure HIPAA data storage system and accessible only with your username and password.
You will receive an email when your results are ready. The email will contain a link to your results, which you can review online. You will also have the option of downloading a PDF of your results so you can share them at your discretion. You can also share a link to your online results with a family physician when seeking treatment or to clear the air with a negative result. All myLAB Box test results are lab-certified and can be given to your doctor for treatment.
Step 4: Free Consultation
If you have tested positive, myLAB Box will allow you to schedule a free phone consultation with a highly trained and experienced STD counselor. This counselor can provide you with accurate information on available treatments for your infection and how to go about getting that treatment. During this consultation, feel free to ask questions about your results, discuss your concerns, and ask for advice regarding what steps you should take next.
That’s all it takes to get tested for STDs without ever stepping foot in a clinic or doctor’s office.
Many people choose an at-home STD test kit because of how convenient and easy it is to use. Everything you need to take the test will be provided in the kit. It takes about five minutes to collect your sample and send it back to the laboratory for testing. Once the lab receives your sample, it will take between two to five days to get your results, which will be sent via email. This short turnaround time allows you to quickly get the information you need to protect your sexual health.
If you use an at-home STD test kit, your sample will be sent to a laboratory for evaluation. myLAB Box only works with the best CLIA and CAP accredited laboratories in the U.S. These are the same facilities that would evaluate your sample if you were tested in a doctor’s office or clinic, so at-home STD tests are just as reliable as in-office STD tests.
Many people believe they don’t need to get tested for STDs unless they are exhibiting symptoms, but that’s not the case. Every sexually active person should be testing regularly for STIs, even if they don’t notice any symptoms. As many as 70% of STIs present mild symptoms or no symptoms at all and can have serious, long-term health consequences if left untreated. Even if a particular STI is not a serious risk to your health, it is very likely a serious risk to your partner. Many STIs have more dangerous consequences for women than for men, especially pregnant women. Some can cause complications with pregnancy, including early delivery, birth defects, and stillbirth. For this reason, you should never assume that you do not have an STD simply because you are not experiencing symptoms.
Testing frequency will vary with your sexual activity. Obviously, you should test if you are experiencing symptoms, but you should also test after every new partner, especially if you did not use a condom. Condoms can not prevent STIs, but they will lower the risk of transmission. If you practice oral or anal sex, you should also take an extragenital test to check for an infection in those areas. Like genital STIs, these are often asymptomatic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established some guidelines regarding who should get tested and when. According to the CDC, every adult should be tested for HIV at least once in their lifetime. But if they engage in risky activities, such as unprotected sex or needle sharing, they should test for HIV far more frequently. Sexually active women should get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea at least once a year, but more frequently if they have had unprotected sex or been exposed to one of these STDs.
Sexually active gay and bisexual men should get tested for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia frequently, depending on their level of sexual activity.
Everyone’s situation is unique. If you aren’t sure how often you should get tested, it’s best to speak to your doctor to determine what is right for you.
There are many testing options available to choose from. Individual testing kits tests are available and include: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis, Genital Herpes (HSV-2), HIV (II & II), HPV in women who are 30 years of age and older, Mycoplasma Genitalium, Syphilis and Hepatitis C. These are best for people who know or suspect they have been exposed to a particular infection.
We also offer combination panel kits that test for multiple infections with one set of samples. There’s a 4-panel test (Safe Box), 8-panel test (Uber Box) and comprehensive 14-panel test (Total Box). These are best for people with no symptoms or symptoms that could point to one of several infections. Combination panels are more cost effective unless you know exactly which infection to test for. If you aren’t sure, it’s best to play it safe by testing for all STDs with a combination panel test kit.
If you test positive you will receive a free telemedicine consultation with a physician in your state. This physician will be able to prescribe treatment during the phone call (restrictions vary by state). Depending on the infection, you may also need to retest after treatment to confirm the infection is gone.
It is crucial that you inform your sexual partners of your test results, whether they’re positive or negative. Sharing this information will help stop the spread of any infection and will allow your partners to seek testing and treatment immediately if necessary.
Keep testing. Just because you’ve tested once does not mean that you shouldn’t test again. In fact, it’s common to get infected with certain STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, multiple times. myLAB Box recommends that you test every few months, especially if you’ve received a positive result in the past.
The term STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) refers to the earlier stages of an infection transmitted through sexual activity. Undiagnosed and untreated, STIs can turn into STDs (Sexually Transmitted Disease). While STD is the catch-all word for these conditions, it is not what most people are actually referring to.
