Those who aren't comfortable going to see their doctor or visiting a clinic for STI testing can make use of the 'Get-Checked-Online' service that provides access to doctor-free testing.
Set for use in five communities within British Columbia in Canada, 'Get-Checked-Online' works by enabling users to get information, submitting their samples and getting results online. The service is focused on discretion and can help provide users access to STI testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis and hepatitis C.
Despite being such an important topic, STI tests are still regarded as something of a taboo topic by a number of different people. As such, 'Get-Checked-Online' offers users a great way to test on their own terms to stay informed and healthy.
