What STDs Can I Test For At Home?
Now that you have the answer to, “how can I test for STDs at home?,” it’s time to find out what infections you can screen for at home. At myLAB Box, we want to make sure that you are protected from all of the most common infections found in the United States. When testing with myLAB Box, you have two choices:
Single-Infection Test Kits
These tests allow you to test for individual infections at a time. This includes all of the most common infections: Trich, Genital Herpes (HSV-2), HIV, HPV (for women who are 30 years of age and older), Mycoplasma Genitalium, Syphilis and Hepatitis C. The only exception however, is chlamydia and gonorrhea, which are tested together for the same price as a single infection test kit.
Combination Test Panels
Combination test kits allow you to test for multiple common infections with a single sample set. These options are available at multiple levels of protection at varying price points. For instance, there is the 5-panel Safe Box, the most popular 8-panel Uber Box, and the most comprehensive 14-panel Total Box. In addition, your lifestyle is taken into account with test kits like Love Box, which allows you and your partner to test together, and even the V-Box, a women’s health kit that screens for common causes of abnormal vaginal discharge.
