Our 10-Test Panel is a comprehensive STD testing package that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States. This inclusive STD testing panel has been carefully designed by our physicians to provide you with complete peace of mind.
If you are concerned about recent exposure, we recommend adding our HIV RNA Early Detection Test. Our HIV RNA Early Detection Test can detect an HIV infection as early as 6 days after exposure and is conclusive if taken 9-11 days post exposure. Our standard HIV test is a 4th Generation HIV 1 & 2 Antibody/Antigen test that can detect HIV as early as 2-3 weeks after exposure.
We offer individual tests in case you are concerned about a single infection, or if you are retesting to see if an existing infection has been cleared after treatment. Please select tests from the list below.
You may be concerned about the best time to test for STDs. If you have had unprotected sexual contact, our doctors recommend testing 3 weeks after initial exposure, and again 3 months after to confirm your initial diagnosis. This is the best way to ensure you test at the right time because different sexually transmitted infections become detectable at different times. To know what test is right for you, use our physician-approved Test Recommendation Tool or call our Care Advisors at 1-800-456-2323.
The HIV RNA test can detect HIV sooner than any other HIV test; as early as 9-11 days after exposure. The HIV 4th Generation Antibody test can detect HIV 2-3 weeks after exposure. The HIV RNA test detects the HIV virus in the blood by seeking out its genetic material (RNA), whereas the HIV 4th Generation Antibody test detects HIV antibodies and antigens. Antibodies are proteins created by the body's immune system to try to destroy foreign substances like bacteria or viruses, in this case HIV. Antigens are the foreign substances that cause an immune response-- the HIV Antibody test detects HIV p24 antigens.

It depends on the type of test you are taking. If you are taking a blood test for STDs such as HIV, syphilis, hepatitis A, B & C, oral herpes or genital herpes, then no preparation is required before the test. If you are taking a test that requires a urine sample, like chlamydia or gonorrhea, do not urinate for at least one hour prior to testing. Besides that provision, no further preparation is needed.
After taking your STD test, the only thing you need to do is wait 1-2 days for your test results. If your results come back positive, we can provide you with a doctor consultation and present you with treatment options.
