Fast, Affordable & Private STD Testing
Schedule your tests online or by phone and have them sent to the lab of your choice with STD Check – one of our recommended private providers. Visit the lab anytime during open hours, no appointment needed. They send their patients to the same LabCorp and Quest lab locations used by most doctors. There is no physical exam or swabbing. Labs test people for many reasons, so no one will know why you’re there. You’ll be in and out in about 15 minutes.
When your results are ready, you’ll receive an email with login instructions. If your test results are negative, you’ll be able to view your results immediately. If you test positive, a doctor will review them with you by phone. You can choose to have a physician call you back, usually within a few hours, or make an appointment for a time that’s convenient for you. The doctor will explain your results, ask followup questions, and provide counsel on treatment and further testing, if necessary. The doctor can also write you a prescription to treat certain STDs.
Their mission is to help people get tested for sexually transmitted diseases easily, privately, and at a fraction of the cost.
