You can obtain your results in minutes rather than days with a quick STI test. If the test is positive, you can get treated right away. This is the case for diseases like HIV because early treatment means a lower chance of illness and a longer lifespan.
The newest tests also eliminate another barrier that many people encounter—needles
and blood. A quick STI test may merely take a swab of bodily fluid or a urine sample, depending on the condition (in addition to the traditional blood or finger-prick tests).
Unfortunately, a lower sensitivity rate means a higher likelihood of a false-negative result, which means a person is told they are not infected while they are. In terms of sensitivity, the currently available at-home HIV test has a 92 percent sensitivity rate, which corresponds to one false negative out of every 15 tests.
Embrace a quick STI test today and know your status in less time.
