Background information

Introduction

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are diseases that are transmitted through sexual contact. You can be infected with or pass on a virus or bacteria to someone else during sex. This can be through the penis, vagina, anus, and sometimes also with your mouth or fingers. Many STDs cause little or no symptoms. However, an STD is not harmless and can cause uncomfortable symptoms at the location of infection. While most STDs are easily treatable, if some infections are not treated in time they can cause longer-term damage to the body. For example, some untreated STDs in women can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease. In the long run, this increases the risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancy. It is therefore important that you get tested if you have been at risk to treat the infection and to prevent it from spreading to others.

Via Homed-IQ you can get tested for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis, Syphilis and HIV.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria can cause infection of the urethra, cervix, rectum or throat. The infection can spread to the epididymis in men and to the uterus or fallopian tubes in women. Left untreated, this increases the risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancy. If a woman has chlamydia during pregnancy, she can also infect her baby during delivery without proper management. This can lead to an eye and respiratory tract infection in the baby. Chlamydia is a very common STD and is usually treatable with antibiotics.

I am very positive about the diabetes test I bought from Homed-IQ! The actual testing process is easy and the doctor's result was clear. A great solution for me. I think everyone should have access to tests like the diabetes test, because it gives a lot of information. Homed-IQ makes that possible!

Overall experience was excellent. But the processing time was a bit long, maybe it was because I only ordered late Friday evening. The rest of the process went well.

The test was delivered within a day and I thought it was all easy to do, activating the test could perhaps be a little easier. At least I didn't have to go to the doctor or take a day off from work to get my blood checked or come back to a doctor's office for the results! It's quick and easy.

Shipping is very fast and the purchase process is well described in the supplied manual. It took me a maximum of five minutes to do. I knew it would be difficult for me to get to the doctor, especially because of COVID-19, so this was a lifesaver. It took 4 days to receive my results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for sexually transmitted infections. If you are sexually active, it is important to use protection and get screened regularly. This is especially important if you have more than one sexual partner.

While opinions vary, routine physical exams are generally recommended once a year if you’re over the age of 50, and once every 3 years if you’re younger than 50 and in good health. If you have a chronic disease or other ongoing health issues, you should see your doctor more often, no matter how old you are.

Early detection and treatment of potential illnesses will help you maintain a healthy mind, body and quality of life.

The STI test is not suitable for people under the age of 18. It is also better not to take this test during the incubation period for STIs, unless you have symptoms. During the incubation period, STIs are not always detectable with a test (see: “What is the incubation period of each STI?”). If you have symptoms, you can test before the incubation period has ended. However, if you then get a negative result, we recommend that you repeat the test after the incubation period has passed, because it is possible that the STI can only be detected later.

If you have many or often changing sexual partners, or if you meet certain risk factors for HIV and/or other STIs, we advise you to get tested every six months. For example, because you are a sex worker. Additionally, you should consider getting tested if you’ve had or are considering having unprotected sex with a new partner (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 2021).  

Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, and Trichomoniasis are some of the most common STDs worldwide. That is why it is very important that STDs are regularly tested for, so that further spread is limited.

We advise everyone to go directly to the doctor for treatment. To do this, print out your lab result (via the download button at the bottom of your personal portal). If a visit to the doctor is not possible, our medical team can provide prescriptions for treatment to customers in the Netherlands.

Homed-IQ works with the same labs that provide tests for clinics, and strives to provide your results quickly and confidentially. STI rapid tests that are available at e.g. the drugstore are often not reliable and may result in a false negative or false positive result.
