If I select lab testing, do I need an appointment?
No. You can walk into the lab at your convenience any time during operating hours. However, you must place an order with us prior to getting tested.
How long should I wait to get tested for STDs after a possible STD exposure?
Each STD test has a specific window period—the time from exposure to when the test can detect the STD in your body. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis is three to seven days. Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, oral herpes, genital herpes, and syphilis is three to six weeks. HIV is three to six months.
What is the difference between home testing and lab testing?

With over 4000+ nationwide labs in our network, we likely have a location near your home or office. No appointments are required and most visits are typically 15-20 minutes. Alternately, test in the privacy of your home and mail the kit for processing and analysis. To order at-home testing, call 866-467-7803.
For lab testing, what do I need to bring with me to the lab?
