1. Tests & Results

At home lab testing is one of the most revolutionary advances in healthcare. With our especially designed testing process, you can set your own schedule and test whenever and wherever you want. That means you can test from your own home and get the same results you would receive from a clinic. Additionally, home tests are roughly half the cost of testing at a doctor’s office, it making the entire more affordable and accessible to users. Homed-IQ tests are available solely online.

Step 1: Order
Choose and order your test online. All of our home tests ship in 100% discreet packaging.

Step 2: Sample collection
Most Homed-IQ tests only take five minutes of your time to complete. However, this will vary depending on what you’re testing for. Every package will include: The urine, vaginal swab and/or blood sample collection kit, basic instructions, and a postage paid return envelope to send your samples in for testing.

Step 3: Results
When you send in your sample, one of our 3rd party partner labs will test them in the same type of facilities that medical clinics use. That means you will have the same accuracy as a clinic but at half the cost. Results are available shortly after you have sent in the samples, which are stored in a secure data storage system and accessible only with your username and password.

You will receive an email when your results are ready and can review them online or download a PDF and share them with your doctor at your discretion. You can also share a link to your online results with a family physician when seeking treatment. All Homed-IQ test results are lab certified and can be given to your doctor for further treatment.

Once your order is complete, your Homed-IQ test package will be shipped from our fulfilment warehouse within a business day and you will receive your order within 3-5 business days. Once your sample reaches the lab, you will typically receive your results in 5 business days, depending on which test you ordered. If you have questions about a specific order or sample, please email us directly at [email protected] .

The term STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) refers to the earlier stages of an infection transmitted through sexual activity. Undiagnosed and untreated, STIs can turn into STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). While STD is the catch-all word for these conditions, it is not what most people are actually referring to.

Yes. In fact, some STDs make you more susceptible to contracting other STDs. That’s why it’s best to get tested for all STDs.
