At Home STD Tests
How it Works
Affordable, Rapid, Confidential
Are mail-order or over-the-counter STD tests the best option for me?
What are the benefits of at-home STD tests?
Year by year, the cases of sexually transmitted diseases in the United States continue to rise. Many STDs show few or no symptoms but can cause serious health complications if left untreated. It is advisable for anyone who is sexually active, especially those who are not in a long-term monogamous relationship, to get a periodic STD test. However, the process of getting a test can be time-consuming. Scheduling an appointment, going to see your doctor just to get a medical order for testing, going to the lab to submit your specimen, waiting for the test to be run, and waiting for your doctor's office to provide the results can take up more time than most people have in their busy schedules. Ordering an STD test kit by mail or buying one at your local pharmacy can seem like a great way to save time. Plus, being able to collect your specimen in the privacy of your own home and mail it in saves you from having any embarrassing conversations with our medical provider. Unfortunately, this seemingly convenient option has some downsides you may not have considered. Request A Test provides direct-to-consumer STD lab testing that is not only convenient but can provide a higher level of confidence than at-home testing.
Are home STD tests accurate?
Trusting your health as well as that of your partners to home STD testing may not be the best option. There are a lot of choices to pick from for at-home testing and the quality and accuracy of the testing can vary depending on the manufacturer. Collecting your specimen yourself at home may be expedient but it increases the likelihood of inaccuracies on your results. If your kit is damaged or mishandled during shipping on its way to you or the lab, you may have to start all over. Ultimately, how confident can you be in the accuracy of your results? Did you follow all the instructions correctly? Is the manufacturer of the test kit and the lab that performs the testing reliable and trustworthy? These uncertainties call into question whether home STD testing can really give you the peace of mind you deserve. Fortunately, there is an option that makes quick and accurate STD testing performed by professionals available to everyone. Request A Test lets you order certified STD testing with results you can count on.
