Anonymous STD Testing with Homed-IQ
Sexually transmitted diseases, also known as STIs or STDs, are unfortunately still often considered taboo topics. If you have had unprotected sexual contact and later notice a rash, itching, or burning sensation in the genital area, an STD can often be the cause. Experiencing symptoms of an STD can cause panic, but don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world! Most common STDs these days are treatable with antibiotics, provided the STD has been correctly diagnosed. This is where Homed-IQ’s STI home tests come into play. With our self-tests, you can test yourself easily, safely, and anonymously for the most common sexually transmitted diseases. Compared to many other self-tests for STDs, Homed-IQ works with selected and certified laboratories to guarantee you a valid and reliable test result.
What STDs can I test myself for?
Homed-IQ offers several STD self-tests, including tests for individual STDs, such as Chlamydia, as well as tests that allow you to be tested for several STDs at the same time. With our STD Complete Test, you can check yourself for all of the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, syphilis, and HIV. In summary, the following selection of home STD tests are available:
Why should I take an STD test?
The problem with most STDs is that they can be almost completely asymptomatic. However, that doesn’t mean STDs are harmless and therefore should be taken lightly. Some STDs that are left untreated can cause long-term damage to the body, such as infertility. Therefore, it is important to test yourself for STDs after unprotected sex to avoid long-term health effects and transmission to other people.

Is an STI home test anonymous?
Often the biggest barrier to STD testing is that individuals want to avoid personal contact with health care providers. All Homed-IQ STD tests are 100% anonymous and treated with the utmost discretion. Apart from you, our certified laboratory partners, and us, Homed-IQ, no other party is involved in the test or the result- neither your family doctor nor your insurance company. However, if your test result is positive, we strongly advise you to contact your family doctor to initiate treatment!
