STD testing overview

Maintaining your sexual health shouldn’t be stressful for you or your partner. You’re not in this alone. Sexually transmitted diseases impact about 20 million people each year in the United States. Because most STDs do not have any symptoms, it’s important to get tested.

This kit includes screening for some of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs):

  • HIV
  • Herpes type 2 (HSV-2)
  • Hepatitis C
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Trichomoniasis

The kit comes unbranded in a generic mailer envelope and white box to protect your privacy.

 

Who should get this STD test kit?

Adults who have had more than one partner in the last 12 months or have had unprotected sex should be tested yearly. The CDC recommends that gay, bisexual or men who have sex with men (MSM), be tested every year. MSM who have multiple partners are at greater risk and should be tested every 3 to 6 months. If you are concerned about a recent exposure, our doctors recommend testing 3 weeks after exposure and three months after that test.

Those at highest risk for transmission of STDs range in age from 15-64. Which is to say, these common conditions impact a wide range of adults. Many STDs can be cured, and if they can’t be cured they can be treated or managed.

Our doctors recommend testing 3 weeks after exposure and then again in 3 months. Get tested today, so you can ensure you know where you stand when it comes to sexual health.

 

How does collecting samples for the STD test work?

Ordering this private at-home test kit makes it even easier to better your sexual health. You don’t need to visit a doctor’s office or lab. When the kit arrives, simply provide a sample of urine, and dried blood spots with the prick of your finger, then return your samples to the lab in the prepaid mailer. Results are typically available in 5 business days or less.

 

What will my STD test results tell me?

By testing for HIV, herpes type 2 (HSV-2), hepatitis C, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis, you will know where you stand when it comes to your sexual health.

Your results will break down whether or not any of the STDs in this kit were detected. Your results will be easy to read and understand. Our medical team is here for you to answer any questions you might have about your results.

 

How is this test performed by the lab?

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses an amplified DNA PCR test method to detect chlamydia and gonorrhea. The test is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test that utilizes the Polymerase Chain Reaction and nucleic acid hybridization for the qualitative detection of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and/or Neisseria gonorrhea (NG) DNA. The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines.

Syphilis: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses an IgG Antibody EIA test method to detect syphilis. The EIA assay is a qualitative enzyme immunoassay for the in vitro diagnostic detection of Treponema pallidum (syphilis) antibodies. The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines.

HSV-2: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses an ELISA IgG test method to detect HSV-2. The test is intended for qualitatively detecting the presence or absence of human IgG class antibodies to HSV-2. The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines.

HCV: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses an ELISA antibody test method to detect HCV. The presence of HCV antibodies does not constitute a diagnosis of hepatitis C, but may be indicative of recent and/or past infection by hepatitis C virus.The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines. 

Hepatitis C can sometimes produce false positives and false negatives depending on specific antibodies your immune system has produced, and the timing of HCV exposure. For positive results, you should consider follow-up with your primary care physician for RNA testing through a phlebotomy sample to determine if HCV resolved spontaneously and resulted in a positive antibody result from past disease or a false positive result, or if active disease is present. For negative results, you should consider follow-up with your primary care physician for RNA testing through a phlebotomy sample if you suspect there has been possible Hepatitis C transmission in the past 2 months.

Our partner labs test for Hep C using the Elisa test method If your screening test comes back detected, you will need additional testing to confirm that you are positive. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to provide that additional confirmatory testing. However, your primary care provider should be able to assist you and, if you do not already have a doctor, we can help you find one in your area.

HIV: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses the GS HIV Combo Ag/Ab EIA test method to detect HIV. The GS HIV Combo Ag/Ab EIA is for the qualitative detection of HIV p24 antigen and antibodies to HIV Type 1 (HIV-1 groups M and O) and HIV Type 2 (HIV-2).The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines.

Trichomonas: Our CLIA-Certified lab partner uses an Amplified DNA test method to detect trichomonas vaginalis. The Amplified DNA Assays use Strand Displacement Amplification (SDA) technology for the direct, qualitative detection of Trichomonas vaginalis DNA in vaginal swab and urine specimens. The assay has been developed and validated according to CAP/CLIA guidelines.

Am I able to get treatment if I test positive for an STD?

All of our patients that have STD testing through Health Test Express get access to doctors from Analyte Physicians Group to discuss results and treatment options. In some cases, our licensed physicians may prescribe treatment if medically appropriate and permitted by state law. For some serious conditions, such as HIV, our doctors can connect you to a local health department, urgent care center or general physician for further testing to confirm your results.
