Consult with a doctor on your time.
Private online testing is a great convenience, but must be authorized, counseled, and treated by licensed physicians with appropriate clinical experience. You have the right to professional medical care. We feel so strongly about it that we include a doctor phone consultation for anyone who has a positive test result, excluding positive Herpes 1 (HSV-1) tests.
How does the phone consultation with a doctor work?
When your results are ready, you'll receive an email with login instructions. If your test results are negative, you'll be able to view your results immediately. If you test positive, a doctor will review them with you by phone, excluding Herpes 1 (HSV-1) tests. You can choose to have a physician call you back, usually within 24 hours, or make an appointment for a time that's convenient for you. The doctor will explain your results, ask followup questions, and provide counsel on treatment and further testing, if necessary.
Can the doctor write a prescription for medication if I need it?
Yes, the doctor may write a prescription to treat certain STDs. The decision to write a prescription for medication is based on a variety of factors and is always at the sole discretion of the doctor.
I'm not sure which tests are right for me. How should I decide?
The fastest and easiest way to find out which tests are right for you is to use our Test Recommender online. This short questionnaire is based on the CDC's current guidelines for screening.
