Should I get Tested?

Most individuals think that they should only get tested if they display STD symptoms like:

  • Genital discharge
  • Sores or a rash on the vagina or penis
  • Burning or itching during urination

This is simply not true. Many sexually transmitted infections have no visible symptoms at all. STDs are extremely common, and most go undiagnosed. STDs left untreated may lead to severe health consequences.

Take control of your own sexual health:

  • If you’ve never been tested and have had at least one sexual partner
  • If you’ve had unprotected sex since your last test
  • If you have symptoms that are worrying you
  • If you suspect you may have been exposed to an STD

Don't wait, take steps to protect yourself and your partner(s). Order your test today.

How much will it cost?

Public STD Clinics

Costs vary from clinic to clinic, and depend on which tests are recommended for you. While some public clinics offer free testing, this may only apply to those who meet the low income requirements. They may provide testing for a single test( if qualified), but will charge extra for additional.

Our Private Partner Clinics

Pricing starts at as low as $65 if you choose to use health insurance and it is accepted by your preferred clinic. Individual tests start at $87.28 without insurance, or $249 for a comprehensive 10-test panel. Billing is private and discreet.

How does STD Testing Work?

The procedure - You may not need every test available. Specific STD tests screen for different types of infection. The tests recommended for you will depend on your history of STDs, sexual behavior, and presence of any symptoms.

The procedure will depend on the clinic you choose and the tests you require:

  • Public testing clinics routinely ask questions about your lifestyle and previous sexual activity
  • Our partner private clinics allow you to provide your test samples without filling out paperwork and without answering embarrassing questions
  • Blood Sample—a blood sample is necessary to test for HIV, oral or genital herpes, syphilis and hepatitis A, B and C
  • Urine Sample—a urine sample is the standard method used to test for specific STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea
  • Our partner private clinics use blood and urine sample for accurate testing results; physical examinations and swab testing are not necessary
  • Public testing clinics often require a physical examination of your anus or genitals for signs of warts, discharge, sores, or rashes and may use a swab to collect saliva, discharge, cell or tissue samples

Public STD Clinics

You have the option to schedule an appointment weeks in advance, or drop in and wait hours in line.

In some cases, the testing may not be free so it is advised that you check into the income guidelines. Free STD testing clinics might not accept insurance and there is no guarantee for discretion and privacy because of the sheer numbers of people who are being served.

You should be prepared to provide documents for proof of your income level for staff to make the determination of your eligibility for free or reduced services. Free std clinics base their charges upon the income level of their clients. This can be a benefit if you meet the criteria. It may be a good idea to inquire about fees and income requirements prior to your appointment so you can arrive fully prepared.
