When you call our company to arrange your confidential testing for STDs, we will start by asking you questions to better understand your concerns and inquiring about past and present sexual interactions. We have certified counselors available to answer your questions and to handle any concerns you may have.
After assessing what possible sexually transmitted diseases (STD) or sexually transmitted infections (STI) you may be at risk for, we will complete the following steps for you, to protect your identity so that your information remains confidential.
Our Caring Counselors Will Help You With The Following:
- Fill out all the forms needed on your behalf
- Prepare and submit all the necessary paperwork to the appropriate parties
- Set up an appointment that is convenient to your schedule
- Have our doctors sign off on all the paperwork
- Take payment over the phone
- Provide you with a personalized ID code
Once we have completed the above steps, all you have to do is show up for your scheduled appointment at the lab of your choice with your personalized ID code. It’s that simple.
Depending on the type of STD and/or STI that you are being tested for, you will need to provide the lab technician a blood and/or urine sample. (It is recommended that you do not go to the bathroom 1 hour prior to your appointment.)
Your confidential test results will come back from the lab within 48 to 72 hours.
Anyone with a new partner, multiple partners or just sexually active in general should be tested for the 6 most commonly transmitted diseases and infections. Certain high risk groups including prison inmates, men who have high risk sex with men, and sexual partners that have already been diagnosed with a STD, should be tested regularly every 6 months.
In the absence of symptoms, however, sexually active individuals should get tested regularly at least once per year. Most importantly however, if you know you are at risk for a particular disease, speak up. The best way to truly know what is going on with your body is to call us and get tested today.
Below, you will find links that describe more in depth each of the 6 most common STD or STI that you should be tested for if your are sexually active.
Think Twice Before You Go To Your
Doctor Or Use Your Health Insurance
To Get Tested For STDs…
It is also important for you to known that many private doctors do not test for STDs because many insurance companies do not cover these types of tests. Therefore even though you may think you’re safe, because your doctor hasn’t told you that you have an infection, it’s possible that you haven’t actually been tested at all.
Also, it is important to know that many insurance companies may increase your rates if you come back positive for a STD, even if the STD is curable, and what could be worse is getting dropped from your insurance all together because they may view you as a high risk factor. This is very common and why we at Simple STD Testing encourage you to get tested regularly and use our service, so that all your information remains confidential and never shared with your insurance company or anyone else for that matter.
Don’t hesitate to get tested. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and better to know than worry.
