The Importance of Getting Tested for STDs

When considering to take your relationship to the next level of intimacy, a big concern your partner or even yourself might have is the potential risk for STDs. While traditional protection such as condoms offer a buffer and help with preventing the transmission of some STDs, its not a 100% guaranteed to protect you, or your partner. STDs are something to be discussed, and taking a blind leap into intimacy can have terrible consequences if you don’t know your partner’s status, or even your own. The good news is that STD testing is very simple, and many previously incurable STDs are now curable if caught early. Even syphilis can be cured with a strong antibiotic regiment if caught early, and early symptoms tend to resemble a common cold but late stage symptoms can cause lasting damage to your nervous system and even death. There is also a decreased stigma against those with STDs in today’s culture as opposed to even as early back as 20-30 years ago, and services and guidance are a lot more available, regardless of your testing results.

The First Step, Getting Tested:

It may be a scary first step, but to take, but knowing your status can give you a better idea of the next steps to take. With STDcheck.com, we provide private and confidential FDA approved testing. Since we don’t go through your insurance, your test results won’t show up on your medical records. The only people who will know about your testing is yourself and our doctors. Getting tested with us is easy as well. Simply place your order for testing, and then you are free to visit any one of our nationwide testing centers at your own convenience, no appointment needed. The testing itself is quick and discrete. No questions asked, simply provide your sample and you are free to go.

The Results:

As one of the only testing centers that test for 10 different kinds of STDs rather than just the major ones, you’ll have a comprehensive test result providing all of the information you’ll need. We even test for Hepatitis A. We believe that the more knowledge you have about your own situation, the better prepared you will be to make informed choices about your sex life and what to do next. The test results are also available as soon as 1-2 days after the test, so if you’re curious about the results, feel free to give us a call.

Consultation:

If you do get a positive result back, we have plenty of doctors on staff available to help you figure out the next steps. Not only can they provide advice on prevention or protection strategies to prevent the spread of STDs, but they can also prescribe medications to be sent to your pharmacy right over the phone, making things discrete and easy for you. Be it something curable like a bacterial infection, or something more long lasting like a viral or parasitic infection like crabs, our doctors are here to provide counsel, and can even refer you to a specialist if need be.

While the 10 panel test is the most comprehensive, we do offer individual of grouped tests as well if you’re checking for a specific STD or if you’ve been with a partner you know has a specific STD and want to be safe and make sure you’re disease free. We also offer comprehensive information about some of the most common STDs, including symptoms and treatment plans. There are also a variety of payment options available, ranging from Visa and Money Orders to even crypto currencies and a pay later option. For your protection we do NOT accept insurance.
