STI & BBDs Screening
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Blood-borne Diseases (BBDs) can be very harmful if left undiagnosed, which is why we will test the antigens too.
- Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic disease — it is more commonly transmitted through needles or blood exposure and only rarely spread through sexual intercourse. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that anyone born between 1945 and 1965 take a hepatitis B antibody test at least once. Signs and symptoms of hepatitis B range from mild to severe, so our test gives you the opportunity to find out if you are affected by Hepatitis B.
Biomarkers Tested: Hepatitis B Immunity, Hepatitis B surface antigen, Hepatitis B core antibodies
- Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect the liver. If left untreated, it can sometimes cause serious and potentially life-threatening damage to the liver over many years — it is more commonly transmitted through needles or blood exposure and only rarely spread through sexual intercourse. Signs and symptoms of hepatitis C range from mild to severe, so our test gives you the opportunity to find out if you are affected by Hepatitis C.
Biomakers Tested: Hepatitis C antibodies, Hepatitis C antigen
Frequently Asked Questions
How frequently should I get tested?
If you are a sexually active adult, it is recommended that you get tested at the minimum once a year, even when practicing safe sex regularly. If you are sexually active with multiple partners, have had unprotected sex, or suspect a partner may have a sexual transmitted infection, you’ll want to get tested more than the minimum recommendation of once per year.
Is my test really confidential?
Your privacy is just as important to us as it is to you, especially when it comes to sexual health. Your test is confidential with Rightangled and our partner testing lab. Your results will never be shared with anyone unless you choose to speak to a member of our Customer Support Team, or a medical specialist.
What is the benefit of taking the test at home instead of a local clinic?
There are quite a few benefits for testing at home rather than visiting a local clinic. First is the matter of convenience, which saves you from having to take time out of your schedule for any trips to the clinic. It is also the matter of being the comfort of your home and having your privacy when taking your test. Finally, our results are straight forward and easier to understand, so the confusion typically associated with clinic visits won’t be an issue.
