Why Should I Be Tested for STDs?
Everyone who is sexually active should be tested for STDs about once per year.

You should also be tested if you ever suspect that you could have contracted an STD.
When you have routine STD testing done, the following are common STDs you should rule out:
Who Will Test My Samples?
Professional lab technicians who hold your samples in the strictest of confidence test your samples. The samples are properly prepared and machines are used to test them. The information, which includes the information necessary to provide you with a result, is available via a computer that is connected to the machines. The results are then known only by the information on your requisition form or your confidentiality code, and not your name, to ensure optimal privacy.
Do I Need an Appointment?
You never need an appointment to go to a testing center and provide your samples. You simply come into the testing center that is closest to you during normal business hours. The technicians will take you and help you to provide the proper samples for what you are being tested for. As soon as your samples are collected, you can go home, as there is no need to wait to see a doctor. Just make sure that you make your payment by phone or online prior to coming in.
Will Anyone Know What My Test is For?
No one at the testing center will know what you are there to be tested for. You will bring your confidential test code or your lab requisition form to the center with you. This will tell the technician whether they need to collect a urine or a blood sample. However, it does not state what that sample is for. No one will ask you what you are there for and your name is no present anywhere.
How Do I Get My Results?
You will receive your results via email within one to two days. Make sure that you provide a valid email address that you check regularly. You will be the only person who is notified of your results and even if you test positive, you will never have to come back to the testing center to receive further information or treatment. You have the option of doing a confidential doctor consultation over the phone if you have a positive result.
Will I Meet with a Doctor?
You will never have to meet face-to-face with a doctor during any part of the testing process. If you test positive, you can take part in a phone consultation with a doctor free of charge. During your consultation, you can discuss treatment options with the doctor. If any prescriptions are necessary to treat an STD, these are sent to the pharmacy of your choice by the doctor that you have the consultation with, so there is no need to come in to pick up a prescription.
Do I Have to Prepare for Testing?
Whether you need to prepare for testing will depend on what you are being tested for. If you are providing a blood test sample, there is no preparation necessary. However, if you need to provide a urine sample for testing for gonorrhea or chlamydia, you should refrain from urinating for one hour before you come to the testing center. This will ensure that you are able to provide an adequate sample for testing. You can also drink some water to ensure that you can provide a urine sample.
How Do I Get the Testing Done?
You will come to the lab with your confidential test code or lab requisition form. Simply check in at the desk and then a technician will call you back to provide a urine or blood sample. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete the process and provide your samples.
Once your samples are collected, you can leave and go home. There is no recovery time necessary and no need to wait at the clinic for your results.
What Do I Need to Do After the Test?
After you come to the testing center and provide the appropriate samples, there is nothing else for you to do. You will await your results which will be available in one to two days after the testing is complete. If your results come back positive, you will have the option to take part in a free doctor consultation that is done via the phone. You are not obligated to take advantage of the doctor consultation.
How Long Does the Lab Visit Take?
On average, you will spend five to 10 minutes at the testing center. When you arrive, you will provide the technicians with your confidential test code or lab requisition form. This form ensures that your identity is completely confidential to everyone at the testing center.
The technician will collect your urine or blood sample and then you will be able to leave. There is no paperwork for you to fill out and you will not have to wait to provide your samples.
What Should I Bring for a Lab Test?
The only thing that you should bring to the testing center is your confidential test code or your lab requisition form. You will receive these via email after you send out for testing information. Your technician needs this information to perform the test. If you do not bring it with you, you will have to retrieve it and come back. Everything else necessary for testing, such as sample cups, is provided for you at the testing center.
Who is Notified if I Test Positive?
If you test positive, you are notified of your result. The testing center will never reach out to any of your sexual partners or family members. However, certain states require that positive STD results be reported to the local health department. You can contact your local health department to determine if they need to be notified if you test positive for an STD. If the health department must be notified, this is done with the highest level of confidentiality.
Can I Use the Test Right Away?
As soon as you get your confidential test code or lab requisition form, you can take the test. There is no waiting period and no waiting for the testing center to contact you. You must bring this information with you to the lab to have testing done. Simply check the hours of the testing center and come in at your convenience. There are multiple locations throughout the country and you can go to any of the centers without an appointment to provide your testing samples.
Is Testing Confidential?
Testing is completely confidential and the clinic follows all HIPAA guidelines strictly. You do not have to worry about your information or test results getting into the wrong hands. When you are being tested, those at the clinic do not know exactly what you are being tested for.
Your privacy is respected and you will never be asked personal questions where other patients or other staff members can hear your information. You simply come in, provide your sample and then you are on your way. You can also be confident that your billing information will be kept with utmost privacy and security. No third parties will ever be given access.
How Long Does the Process Take?
The testing process is very quick and since you do not need an appointment, you can have it done at your convenience. On average, it takes approximately five to 10 minutes to complete the testing process. You will provide the form that was emailed to you so that the technicians know which samples to collect from you.
You will not have to fill out extensive paperwork like you do at a traditional doctor's office. You also will not have to wait to have your testing done.
