Why Get Tested for STDs?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year. In fact, more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis alone were reported in the United States in 2016. This is the highest number ever. What’s more, this number is merely an estimate, as many STDs go unreported.
This begs the question: why are so many infections unreported? Often, this is because many people do not even realize that they are infected. The only way to know for sure is to be tested and receive a full record of your STD results. However, very often people don’t get tested. There are many reasons for this, including lack of time, feeling nervous, money troubles, and more.
Another reason is that they aren’t experiencing any signs of an STD. The problem here is that 80 percent of infections don’t actually show any symptoms. If you are sexually active, it is necessary to be tested on a regular basis regardless of whether you experience any itching, redness or irritation.
At-Home Testing Options
Luckily, myLAB Box is determined to provide convenient and affordable testing options. It’s simple: now you can get your STD results from home. Choose from a variety of options based on what best fits your lifestyle.
- Individual Tests: you can be tested for a single infection by choosing the most appropriate testing kit. This is especially helpful for those who know that they have been exposed to a particular STD. myLAB Box screens for the following individual infections: Trichomoniasis, Genital Herpes, HIV, Mycoplasma Genitalium, Syphilis, Hepatitis C, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea (these two are tested together for the price of one since they are both bacterial and are often found together) and HPV (this test is only recommended for women who are 30 years of age and older).
- Combination Panel Tests: for those who are getting their routine test, the most efficient option is to test for all of the most common infections at once. myLAB Box’s combination tests screen for multiple infections with just one set of samples. These panels include a 4-panel Safe Box, 8-panel Uber Box and a 14-panel Total Box.
- Extragenital Testing: if you participate in oral and anal sex, three-site testing is a necessary step in ensuring your health. This test, designed for chlamydia and gonorrhea, screens for infections in the mouth and rectum in addition to the genitals. myLAB Box is the only home testing service on the market to offer this testing option.
- Test With Your Partner: The Love Box allows you to test at home with your partner. This testing option includes two eight-panel home testing kits. Now you can get your STD results together and have sex with greater ease of mind.
