Our comprehensive test panel detects ten of the most common STDs using FDA-cleared tests. Most results are available in 1 to 2 business days, so you can stop worrying and get answers.
We care about your health and peace of mind, which is why we only partner with CLIA-certified labs. These CLIA-certified labs are the same labs your doctors use, and they meet all federal standards of excellence and accuracy. Plus, ordering through our website allows you to test without insurance.

The CDC states that every year, more than 20 million new STD cases occur in the U.S. Since STDs often present mild to no symptoms, many people are unaware they have an STD until they test. Left untreated, STDs can cause serious health complications like organ damage and infertility. Getting tested regularly helps protect you, as well as prevent the spread of STDs.

STD Statistics for Denver
STD Information for Denver
Denver has had a historically high amount of STD cases with dramatic increases in chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis over the past years. Denver Public Health speculates these changes are due to decreased condom usage and STD screening, combined with an increase in the number of sexual partners (1). In 2017, Denver County reported 6,928 chlamydia cases, 2,821 gonorrhea cases, and 133 primary and secondary syphilis cases. Compared to other Colorado counties, Denver has the highest rate of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.
In 2017, Colorado ranked in the top 30 states with the highest rates of these STDs. For every 100,000 people, 487.2 Coloradans had chlamydia, 153 had gonorrhea, and 5.3 had syphilis. Congenital syphilis (when a baby gets syphilis from a mother who is infected) remained low but has increased from previous years. There were 4 reported cases of congenital syphilis in 2016 and 4 cases in 2017, up from zero between 2013-2015. (2)
From 2013 through 2016, new diagnoses of HIV in Colorado increased, departing from the previous, slowly decreasing trend. In 2016, there were more than 400 new HIV diagnoses. Of those diagnosed, 88.2% were men, and 55.6% were 20-35 years of age. By the end of 2016, there were 13,681 Colorado residents living with HIV, a 6.2% increase from the previous year. (3)
