At-Home STD Testing

Testing for STDs at home is safe, convenient, and private. Performed regularly, it can help you stay healthy and avoid unknowingly transmitting STDs.

You have many options for at-home STD testing. The best at-home STD tests are FDA approved and evaluated for safety and accuracy with fast result turnaround times and support from health care professionals.

At-home STD testing kits should include instructions for collection and test registration, along with materials such as containers and swabs to collect and send your sample to the lab. Most at-home STD tests offer results in about five days through a secure online patient portal.

STD testing lets you know if you have contracted a sexually transmitted infection. If you test positive, you need treatment and disease management to protect you from long-term health problems and help lower your risk of contracting other incurable STDs like HIV/AIDS. Testing also helps stop the spread of these infections, which is why many facilities in and around Woodstock offer free or low-cost STD services.
