The Most Complete Home STD Testing Kit Options
The at home STD screening kit using self-collection makes life easier and more carefree. This groundbreaking service from myLAB Box cuts through the inconveniences that cause many people not to test. Using your home collection STD screening kit lets you skip the doctor’s office altogether, determine which tests best fit your lifestyle and needs, and get your results from the comfort of home.
If you’re testing for sexually transmitted infections, you might as well cover your bases by screening for all of the most common STDs in the United States. With myLAB Box, you can collect your sample once at home and send it to our lab to run multiple tests using the most comprehensive STD screening kit on the market. The Total Box screens for 14 common infections with one collection kit.
Included in this full panel test are:
- HIV (I & II)
- Hepatitis C
- Genital Herpes (Herpes simplex type-II)
- Chlamydia (genital, throat, and rectal)
- Gonorrhea (genital, throat, and rectal)
- Mycoplasma genitalium
- high-risk HPV (optional for women 30+)
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, this kit includes a specialized test that includes detection of chlamydia and gonorrhea infections in the mouth, throat and anus.
These Extragenital tests are especially relevant and important for those who participate in oral and anal sex. If you take a standard chlamydia and gonorrhea test but are still experiencing symptoms, our oral and anal STD test will tell you if your extragenital areas are infected.
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!
Insurance companies often will not cover preventative screenings. That is, of course, unless you are currently experiencing symptoms. That may seem like an effective plan, but the fact is that many sexually transmitted infections and diseases do not even show symptoms. Even worse, certain STDs and STIs may require more than one screening. For a person relying on medical insurance, this can leave you in a tough spot as you may not get the care you need. If you’re not covered, then you will often need to pay for this “extra care” directly out-of-pocket.
These tests can be quite expensive when administered at a doctor’s office. Fortunately, there’s an alternative. With myLAB Box, home testing kits are about half of the out-of-pocket price you would find at most clinics.
Over the counter at home testing is a slam-dunk for anyone who is looking to test for STIs and STDs in a convenient and cost-effective way. Take total control over your health – all from the comfort of home.
