Choosing the Right Gonorrhea Test For You
No matter what your lifestyle, myLAB Box has a home gonorrhea test to fit your needs. In fact, there are testing options available for gonorrhea and chlamydia than any other infection we screen for. After all, Gonorrhea is the fourth most common sexually transmitted infections in the United States! We mentioned chlamydia as well, since these two infections are often found together. That’s why all Gonorrhea test kits screen for Chlamydia as well.
…Know You’ve Been Exposed
We Recommend: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Test
This test kit will screen for chlamydia and gonorrhea in your genital region. This is a good option if you know that you have been exposed to one of these infections. Otherwise, it is recommended that you screen for multiple infections at once. Keep reading for addition options!
While you’re at it, consider other individual tests for Bacterial Vaginosis, Genital Herpes (HSV-2), Hepatitis C, HIV, HPV (for women who are 30 years of age and older), Mycoplasma Genialium, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis, and Yeast.
…Engage in Oral or Anal Sex
We Recommend: Extragenital “Three Site” Test
This three-site test allows you to screen for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea not only in the genital region, but also in the mouth and rectum. Many people don’t realize that the standard tests for these infections only test the genitals. This is true even for tests at your local clinic or doctor’s office. These two infections, however, can also spread to the mouth and rectum due to oral and anal sex. An Extragenital test screens for all three of these areas that can potentially be at risk.
…Are Experiencing Abnormal Vaginal Discharge
We Recommend: V-Box
This test kit focused on Women’s Health screens for common causes of abnormal vaginal discharge, including Yeast/Candida, Bacterial Vaginosis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis.
…Want to Screen for Multiple Infections at Once
The 5-panel Safe Box test kit tests for HIV (I & II), Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis. The 8-panel Uber Box test kit screens for HIV (I & II), HSV-2, Hepatitis C, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis.
…and Your Partner Test Together
We Recommend: Love Box
The Love Box includes two Uber Box kits so that couples can test together. There’s nothing sexier than entering a relationship with open and honest communication. It allows for a much more inhibited sexual experience!
…Want the Most Comprehensive Testing Option
We Recommend: Total Box
