STRESSED about the COST of STD-Testing?
Of course, if you go to your doctor, you’ll be paying not only for the STD Test but also for the cost of your office visits (plus all the time spent sitting in their waiting room.)
Yes, certainly, it may be tempting to let your insurance pay for tests through your doctor but then your test and its results will become part of your medical record… and that may come back to bite you again and again in years to come.
It just makes good sense not to trade away details about your private life to save a few dollars.
So testing on your own at a Certified STD-Testing Lab (or at home with a mail-in Lab-Accurate STD-Testing Kit) not only preserves your privacy but may — in the end — be less expensive.
NOTE: If you test “positive” you can consult (for free) with a physician (on-line or by phone) about your treatment options. (It’s included as part of your lab-visit or mail-in kit.)
Please Note: The information on this site is not meant to be used as medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment nor to substitute for the advice of a qualified health professional.
The purpose of this site is to help you protect your health and your personal privacy by putting you in touch with a national network of medical laboratories who can offer you a variety of confidential medical tests. Depending on the results of your test(s) you may then want to schedule an appointment with your own qualified health professional or visit a medical clinic for consultation and treatment.
GET TESTED SECRETLY? This site is to help you get tested “secretly” — without your family or friends or colleagues or even your doctor knowing. However, if your results come back “positive” for certain STDs (such as HIV) then the laws and regulations determining whom your lab must report that information to varies by state and location.
So be sure to ask the laboratory what happens if your tests come back “positive” — ask what information will be shared and with whom.

Also, this site is a public service which is funded primarily by referral commissions paid by the labs and services and products recommended. What this means is if you click on a link and buy a service, this site receives a commission on your purchase. For example, if you click on a link to Amazon and make a purchase, this site is paid a small (4% to 6%) commission by Amazon for sending you to their site. Don’t worry: This does NOT increase the price you pay for the services or products you purchase. Just like other advertising, it is an ordinary business expense absorbed by the companies.
Thanks for getting tested, protecting your health, and for making the world safer by reducing the number of people infected by partners who didn’t know they were spreading a disease.
