The Most Comprehensive At Home STD Screening Kit
The future is now. After all, the at home STD screening kit using self-collection makes our lives so much easier than it once was. 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.
The Most Complete STD Testing Kit
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 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, 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!
