This kit screens for Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, Gonorrhea, HIV, and Syphilis -- 5 of the most common STIs. If left untreated, they can lead to pelvic pain, infertility, and other long-term consequences. Getting screened will help you rest easy knowing that you’ve checked yourself out. If positive results are detected, our Care Team will help you get medication or other treatments you might need.
Our labs are CAP (College of American Pathologists) and CLIA-certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments). This means they have to meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications and submit themselves to regular inspections.
Every test is reviewed and approved by tbd's in-house Care Team by a clinician within your state. We make sure that any test ordered is relevant for you.
TBD takes your privacy very seriously, and uses military-grade encryption to store your data in our system and we deploy a state-of-the-art firewall that is constantly monitoring and looking for any malicious attempts to gain access to your data and stop the attack before it even happens.
TBD is only available in Florida, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, Connecticut and Massachusetts. The brand goes far beyond simply delivering STI results and proactively provides supportive services to best care for you before, during and after your test, including unlimited consultations with the clinical team, prescriptions for both you and your partner, if needed, and patent-pending shareable results.
This kit contains one vaginal swab and one blood panel sheet to test for the following:
1 Sterile swab & 1 protective tube for vaginal sample.
1 Blood card & lancet for finger-pricking.
1 Alcohol prep pad & 1 bandage for pre-and post-prick.
Biohazard bags & prepaid shipping labels for easy mailing.
The kit can be used if you are on the pill, have an IUD, are on antibiotics, or are pregnant--just be sure to include that information where it is asked in the test registration.
It is recommended that you wait 2 days after the end of your period to use the kit.
If you’re sexually active, you should be screened regularly to ensure that dormant infections don’t go unnoticed. TBD Health recommends following the CDC’s guidelines for STI screening, which recommends testing every 3-12 months based on your particular needs.
A “window period” is the length of time after sexual contact that it generally takes for an infection to show up in your system. If you get tested within the window period, the infection might not have enough time to reach detectable levels. The window periods for the tests in the kit are: Chlamydia - up to 2 weeks; Gonorrhea -up to 1 week; Trichomoniasis - up to 4 weeks; HIV - up to 3 months; Syphilis - up to 3 months.
