Get Tested

FAQ

Can I really get tested today?

Yes! After you choose your online STD tests, you will pick a local STD testing center convenient to you - you will NOT need to make an appointment to get tested. Just print out your Lab Order Requisition form supplied after you check out (it will be sent via email), and bring it to your chosen local STD testing center during their normal business hours. If you order tests after the local STD center has closed, you can get STD tested at any time the following business day.

How soon will I get my results?

You can expect your test results within 5 business days of your lab visit. Although, in some cases, you can receive your STD test results within as little as 24–48 hours. Please note that the test you order, as well as the local STD testing center you choose, can be factors in the amount of time it takes to receive your results and the general expectation is to receive your results in 5 business days. Our at-home tests take longer as we ship your at-home test kit to you, and you in turn ship your sample back to our lab for testing.
