Why get tested for STIs at home?

  • Convenient. There's no trip to the doctor's office required. You can complete your sample at a time that works best for you.
  • Confidential. You can take your test from the privacy of your own home. The shipping package does not say Planned Parenthood.
  • Safe. Taking your test at home keeps you and our staff safe by reducing the number of people in our health centers.
  • Accurate. The test results are just as reliable as getting tested in-person. 
  • Affordable. It costs the same as getting tested in person. STI testing is covered under most health insurance plans. Uninsured? We have a sliding fee scale and other special programs that could make your testing cost less.
