The Best Place to Get Tested for STDs
When you picture the best place to get tested for STDs, it probably doesn’t look like your local clinic. Chances are, your clinic is a cold, white, sterile office. Its waiting rooms are probably overcrowded with outdated magazines and uncomfortable seating. Let’s face it, clinics serve an important function, but they are usually anything but welcoming.
The Best Place to Get Tested for STDs is at Home!
Thanks to innovations in healthcare, the best place to get tested for STDs can now be your own home! Technically, this can be any place that is comfortable and convenient for you. You see, with myLAB Box’s groundbreaking at-home testing service, testing for sexually transmitted infections can be done at any time and from any place. The goal, after all, is to make testing accessible and manageable for everyone. With myLAB Box, not only can you test anywhere, you can also get your results from anywhere you have internet service.
Places to Test From Other Than the Clinic
While we don’t exactly suggest that you try testing underwater or on an airplane, there are few places that you can’t take your myLAB Box testing kit. Here are some favorite places to test:
There’s nothing quite like the comfort of home, is there? Well, testing from home without ever having to step into a doctor’s office or clinic is just as great! You can even get your results in your pajamas. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Heading (back) to college? Add this must-have item to your back-to-school shopping list. Partying can get a little out of hand in college and we want you to be prepared. Don’t have time to go to your school’s health center? Well, you certainly have 5 minutes between classes to test in your dorm room. As it turns out, that’s all the time you need for a myLAB Box kit.
With Your Friend
Everything is better when you have a support system. If you’re too nervous to test on your own, try testing at a friend’s place. Whoever you can talk with openly is a great person to have by your side when you test or get your results. But if you prefer to have some privacy and test on your own, that’s perfectly okay, too. Whatever works for you.
With Your Partner
We’re reinventing the trend: try Netflix, chill, and test instead. Having an honest and totally transparent relationship with your partner opens up trust big time. And trust us, your sex life becomes even more exciting when you know you can trust one another! To make things easy, use a Love Box. This at-home test kit allows you and your partner to test together for eight common infections each.
