Have questions about how to test for STDs?
With no fear of judgement or discrimination?
Using QueerDoc, you can get online STD testing orders. QueerDoc provides orders for screening tests for sexually transmitted infections. STDs, or STIs, can be present without symptoms. After an initial consult, recommendations on which tests and how frequently to test will be provided. Orders for a full year will be sent to the lab of your choice.
At the lab or by mail, you will need to provide specimens per your visit treatment plan decided on with the QueerDoc. Please review the following self collection resources.
