Who should take the test?
HPV is the most commonly diagnosed STD worldwide. It is transmitted through intimate skin-to-skin contact and can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. About 10% of women with HPV type 16 or 18 will develop long-lasting HPV infections that put them at risk for several types of cancer. Therefore, early detection and treatment is important to avoid long term consequences.
Most Sexually Transmitted Diseases do not show symptoms, making it possible to be infected and not know it.
How does it work?
You collect your sample at home, send it back to us and we will provide you with information about your HPV status. If you test positive, you should talk to a doctor about treatment options to avoid passing an infection to a partner. The test is carried out by a CLIA certified laboratoy.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After the analysis was conducted, you will receive a lab report with explanations about the analyzed markers as well as information about possible symptoms that can occur when there is an imbalance. Further to that, we always recommend the discussion of the results with your doctor or practitioner.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is my privacy protected?
Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. We and our partner laboratories (who may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously. Only you will have access to this information and we will not share your information with any not authorized third party. All samples are disposed of following analysis.
