“Reasonably priced with fast and accurate results, and I like the confidentiality from the packaging to the results!”
“I had a question during my test and a REAL person in chat answered my question! The results were FAST and ACCURATE. Disappointing (to me) but accurate. But I wanted to KNOW before I went to my yearly gyn appointment. Wow, I trust this company! I’d test again if I needed a home test for anything. Results are always scary to find out, but I’d rather know than not know! Wouldn’t you? 🙂”
“I did the test at home, mailed it back and quickly got my results. The ease of use is worth paying without insurance for me. Super cost effective, simple and quick. I’m a fan!”
HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. It is transmitted easily through sexual activities and usually presents without symptoms. It is common for people to infect others with HPV, without realizing that they are infected themselves. That’s why it is so important to take an HPV test at home or in a doctor’s office if you are sexually active.

This test utilizes amplification of target DNA by polymerase chain reaction and nucleic acid hybridization for the detection of 14 high-risk HPV types.
The test specifically identifies two of the most common high-risk HPV (hrHPV) types: HPV16 and HPV18. Test results also include a third category “other high-risk HPV” identifying one or more of the 12 other high-risk types: 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68.
In women under 30, hrHPV infections are relatively common and are usually cleared by the immune system in
two years or less. As a result, screening for women under 30 years of age could detect HPV infections that
are short-lived (usually less than 2 years), creating unnecessary worry and possibly leading to unneeded
and damaging treatment and expenses.
However, once a woman is 30 years of age or older, the presence of hrHPV infections takes on special significance and requires further evaluation.
It’s important to note that you should get tested for HPV even if you received the HPV vaccination.
Testing for hrHPV at home has never been easier.
Here’s how it works:
There are a number of benefits to getting tested for HPV at home rather than in a doctor’s office. First,
an at-home HPV test only costs $79, whereas getting tested in a doctor’s office may cost much more,
depending on your insurance.
Testing at home is also much more convenient. There’s no need to call your doctor, schedule an appointment, travel to their office, and wait for the doctor to see you. You won’t have to find time in your schedule to take an HPV test—an at-home test can be completed in as little as five minutes.
Your results will also be available within 2 to 5 days if you take an at-home test. If you get tested in a doctor’s office, it could take over a week to find out whether or not you have HPV.
These are some of the many reasons why so many people choose to get tested for HPV at home rather than in a doctor’s office.
If you are sexually active, you should get tested for HPV on a regular basis. The American Cancer Society
recommends that sexually active women between the ages of 25 and 65 get tested once every three years. If
you test positive for HPV, your physician may recommend testing more frequently to monitor the infection
and ensure it does not lead to cancer.
Your body’s immune system may help you fight off the infection. But if your HPV infection goes away, it is possible to get it again, which is why it is important to continue to get tested on a regular basis. Do not assume that you do not need to get tested simply because you already fought off the virus once.

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United States, with an estimated 14
million new infections annually and 79 million Americans infected with HPV.
In addition to causing cervical cancer, HPV can cause genital warts and cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, throat and mouth. In the most recent government study, about 40% of women and men had some type of genital HPV infection.
High risk genital HPV (hrHPV) is relatively common, found in one in five women and one in four men.
HPV is spread by having vaginal, oral or anal sex with someone who has the virus. HPV can be transmitted even when there are no signs or symptoms of infection. You can get HPV if you have sex with only one person, and it can take years after infection to develop symptoms. This makes it difficult to know who infected you with hrHPV or when you were infected.
Genital infections due to hrHPV are almost always without signs and symptoms. In rare cases, hrHPV can cause bleeding between periods or pain and bleeding during intercourse.
There are about 150 different types or strains of the human HPV virus. These include approximately 40
types that can infect the genital area. About 14 of the 40 genital HPV types, including among others,
HPV-16 and HPV-18, are called high-risk HPV (hrHPV) types.
In most cases, the body is able to fight off HPV on its own. But sometimes, the HPV infection does not go away. High-risk types can cause persistent infection and result in pre-cancerous changes to the cervix. If these pre-cancerous changes are not detected and the abnormal cells left untreated, it can result in cervical cancer, a serious and potentially life-threatening disease. HPV can also cause cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, and anus.
The only way to know if you are at a higher risk of getting these cancers is to get tested for HPV.
n the past, the only test available for cervical cancer screening was a Pap smear or HPV testing plus a
pap smear. The Pap smear looks for cells damaged by high-risk HPV virus.
But in 2014, the FDA approved an HPV test for primary cervical cancer screening. This test detects DNA from 14 high-risk HPV types. It specifically identifies HPV 16 and 18, as well as 12 additional high-risk HPV types. This information, called HPV genotyping, may be helpful to medical providers in determining the next steps to take following a positive hrHPV test. These tests are now available for at-home use, so you now have the option of getting tested either at home or in a doctor’s office.
Infection with low-risk HPV does not cause cancer but can cause skin warts on and around the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat. Low-risk HPV types 6 and 11, for example, cause 90 percent of all genital warts, also called condylomata acuminata. There is no commercial test available to detect low-risk HPV infection. If you think you have genital warts or warts elsewhere on your body, you should see your healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment.
Unfortunately, HPV tests for men and HPV tests done on non-cervical sites such as the mouth and throat are not accurate. In addition, there are no treatments available for men with hrHPV positive tests and for men or women with hrHPV positive tests in the mouth and throat. As a result, CDC does not recommend HPV testing for men and does not recommend HPV testing at non-cervical sites such as the mouth and throat.
There is no way to treat HPV. However, there are treatments available for the health problems that HPV
For example, HPV can eventually lead to cervical cancer. But if you are screened regularly, a physician can identify and treat pre-cancerous cells before they become cancerous. Regular screenings can also help you catch cervical cancer early, when it is much easier to treat.
