HOUSTON, Oct. 1, 2013--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The leader in online STD testing, STDcheck.com is expanding STD testing options by giving minors the opportunity to test for common sexually transmitted diseases without parental consent.
“Our STD testing for minors is a complete package. We test them for most common sexually transmitted infections and our services are completely confidential. They can choose to test for individual STDs or select our all-inclusive STD test panel that tests for most common infections”
STDcheck.com is the first company to offer FDA-approved STD testing for minors ages 16-17 without consent from their parents or guardians throughout the United States.
"We are the only online STD testing service to offer these Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved tests for minors in all states. At the moment, any minor ages 16-17 can go to our website, order a STD testing panel and get tested the same day," said Fiyyaz Pirani, founder and CEO of STDcheck.com.
Pirani said his company recognizes that many sexually active minors have limited opportunities to get confidential STD testing including testing for HIV without approval from their parents or guardians.
"We recognize that minors have limited options when it comes to exercising control over their sexual health. Offering private STD testing to minors without parental consent empowers those who have until now, been unable to access those services," Pirani said in his office in Houston, Texas.
He revealed that unlike other online STD testing services, STDcheck.com offers complete FDA-approved STD tests for minors including tests for chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, oral herpes, genital herpes, HIV-1, HIV-2 and syphilis.
"Our STD testing for minors is a complete package. We test them for most common sexually transmitted infections and our services are completely confidential. They can choose to test for individual STDs or select our all-inclusive STD test panel that tests for most common infections," Pirani said.
Besides STD testing, STDcheck.com offers free over the phone doctor consultation for those that test positive for sexually transmitted diseases. These doctors will answer all testing related questions and may recommend treatment options at their discretion.
STDcheck.com also offers a physician-approved STD Test Recommender, a free personalized online STD test recommendation engine based on health testing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other nationally recognized medical groups, and Exposed, an online blog where we answer consumer questions about STDs and give insights into STD testing.
