The STI STANDARD 6 test is a DNA test that looks for the genetic material of the virus or bacteria causing the infection. It is therefore a test for current infection. If you suspect you may have had an infection in the past, you will also need to get a blood test that checks your antibody levels. This is very important for several STIs because although you might not have symptoms, the infection can remain in your body and cause serious damage over time. If you have had a past infection which was not diagnosed or treated, it is important to know and get treatment.
Your STI STANDARD 6 health report will come in an easy-to-understand format with a detailed breakdown of results, what they mean and your next steps, including advice on treatment options.
