STD testing should be quick, easy and stigma-free. While you can visit your doctor to request screening panels for specific STDs, sometimes you want to test in the privacy of your own home…and without the hassle of scheduling an appointment.
If you’re concerned about STD exposure, get tested! At-home testing has never been easier, and the sooner you diagnose any disease, the quicker you can seek treatment and guidance from your doctor.
STDs are more common than most of us understand, and this is why we need to remove any sense of stigma…and also why testing is so important! According to statistics published by the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA), half of the sexually active population will be faced with an STI by the time they hit the age of 25.
You may be curious about the diseases for which you may need to screen. For peace of mind, a comprehensive test may be the best choice. Look for combination tests that screen for a variety of STDs.
However, maybe a partner has shared a recent STD diagnosis with you. If there is one specific disease to which you may have been exposed, you could choose a test that screens for only that particular STD. Those in new long-term relationships also may decide to test together; meaning, both partners get screened for the most common STDs. Tests for couples ensure that both partners understand each other’s sexual health and test results may help open up a dialogue.
If you’re hesitant about ordering at-home STD tests, please know that the process of receiving these tests and shipping your samples is secure and discreet. You won’t receive boxes emblazoned with lab names or STD information. Everything you receive will arrive in simple (and seemingly generic) packaging. We work with the top U.S. labs and manufacturers to bring high-quality STD screening kits to your doorstep in a discreet package.
Tests can be self-administered in as little as 5 minutes.
When you pop open your box and you’re ready to test, you may have a few questions. Does it hurt? Is it messy?
Our tests are typically administered using a urine or swab sample. Nothing hurts, and massive needles aren’t involved. While some of our tests require a blood sample, this sample only requires a prick. You’re not expected to draw blood from a vein, so please don’t stress!
Regarding any test mess, at-home STD tests are not any messier than giving a urine sample at the doctor’s office. The only difference is that you control when you test. So there is no pressure to get a sample stat.
