STI Testing

Many STIs show no distinct signs or symptoms in the majority of people infected. Or they show mild signs that can be easily overlooked.

The only way to know if you have an STI is to get tested.

Getting tested for STIs is confusing. A lot of people think their annual medical check-up includes testing for STIs, but some doctors do not test for STIs unless you specifically ask them to.

If you’ve had unprotected sex, have a new partner (or more than one partner), or for any reason are worried you have been exposed to an STI, talk to your healthcare provider about getting tested. The most common STIs are chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, herpes, HPV, syphilis and trichomoniasis.

If you are avoiding going to a clinic for any reason (embarrassment/fear, busy schedule, whatever), we recommend home-testing via myLAB Box.

The tests from myLAB Box are performed in certified CLIA high complexity laboratories and carry the same accuracy as tests done in a clinic or doctor’s office.
