STD Testing

FAQ

  1. What is an STD test?

    STD testing is a way to determine if you have sexually transmitted diseases. There are over 20 types of STDs, including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV. Some STDs can cause long-term health problems if left untreated like:

    • Infertility
    • Pelvic inflammatory disease
    • Cancer
  2. What is a recent exposure STD test?

    A recent exposure STD test is a blood test that can detect the presence of specific STDs in your blood. This is usually done after a high-risk exposure to an STD, such as unprotected sex. Diagnostic testing is the first step if you suspect you've been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease; tests include:

    • Chlamydia and Gonorrhea test
    • Hepatitis B and C testing
    • Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 and 2 testing
    • HIV testing
    • Syphilis testing
    • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
    • Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP)
  3. When to get an STD test after exposure?

    For many STDs, it can take between a few weeks and several months for you to develop symptoms. The testing window, however, varies depending on the STD you were exposed to. Testing windows for some common STDs are as follows:

    • HIV: 23-90 days for an antibody test
    • Chlamydia: 1-2 weeks
    • Syphilis: within 3 weeks after sores appear
    • Gonorrhea: 5 days-2 weeks
    • Herpes: 1-3 months
  4. Do I need to visit a doctor?

    No doctor visit needed.

  5. How do I get my results?

    You get your results via email as soon as they are available.

Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen for accurate Glucose levels. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverage other than water for at least 12 hours before testing. Patient should not have urinated for at least 1 hour prior to specimen collection. Collect the specimen in a sterile, preservative-free collection cup. The patient should collect the first 20-60 mL of voided urine (the first part of the stream-not midstream) into a urine collection cup. Some tests in this panel may exhibit interference when sample is collected from a person who is consuming a supplement with a high dose of biotin (also termed as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H or coenzyme R). Patient should be cautioned to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
