About Our 3-Site Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Tests

The chlamydia and gonorrhea tests that are included in this kit provide more than just your standard chlamydia and gonorrhea screening. In fact, in addition to the genitals, it includes a specialized test that includes detection of these infections in the mouth and rectum. These Extragenital tests are especially relevant and important for those who participate in oral and anal sex. 

About the Optional high-risk HPV Test

There is also an option to add a test for high-risk HPV to your Total Box.  However, this is only recommended for women who are 30 years of age and older.  According to the Mayo Clinic, this infection often clears on its own when found in women under 30 and there is not a test that provides accurate enough results for men.  If you’re a woman over 30 and coming close to your scheduled time for HPV screening, consider adding the high-risk HPV test to your Total Box!
