Test for Multiple Infections At Once
At the basic level, you can test for each infection using an individual at home STD test. Tests are available for the most common STDs, including syphilis, genital herpes (HSV-2), HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhea, Hep C and more.
If you’re looking for maximum convenience, why not screen for multiple infections at once? myLAB Box has designed special combination kits that allow you to test for all of the most common infections from the comfort of your home by using a single sample set.
- Safe Box: this 5-panel test kit screens for these top risks: HIV (I & II), Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis
- Uber Box: this 8-panel test kit screens for HSV-2, but also HIV (I & II), Hepatitis C, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis.
- Love Box: this 8-panel test kit screens for the same infections that are included with the Uber Box, but includes a second test so that couples can test together.
- Total Box: this comprehensive 14-panel test screens for HIV (I & II), Hepatitis C, HSV-2, Syphilis, Chlamydia (genital, throat, + rectal), Gonorrhea (genital, throat, + rectal), Trichomoniasis and Mycoplasma genitalium. Women who are 30 years of age and older can add the option to test for HPV as well.
Summertime and Women’s Health
The requisite sunscreen isn’t your only step for safety this summer. For you beach bums out there, staying poolside in a wet bathing suit can cause some summertime concerns as well. The same can be said for wearing tight clothing that make you sweat. In fact, these things can make it more likely for women to get yeast infections. Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to help avoid a yeast infection this summer. In addition, myLAB Box offers a women’s health test kit that allows you to test for common causes of abnormal vaginal discharge. The 5-panel test kit, called the V-Box, screens for bacterial vaginosis, yeast/candida, trichomoniasis, chlamydia and gonorrhea.
This summer, order an at home STD kit from myLAB Box to beat the heat and fully take control of your health.
