Standard 5

The Standard 5 test is an at-home STD test to detect the 5 STDs commonly tested for by physicians.

Chlamydia

Result type: Qualitative

Chlamydia is a common STD that affects both males and females and generally shows no symptoms. If left untreated, it can result in serious health complications and can easily be spread to partners. This test can detect genital chlamydia but does not identify infections in other areas such as the rectum or throat.

Result ranges

DetectedNot detected
The patient received a detected chlamydia test result. Chlamydia was detected in the patient’s urine sample and they need treatment for the infection.The infection was not detected in the patient’s urine sample at the time of testing.

Gonorrhea

Result type: Qualitative

Gonorrhea can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. It is especially common among young adults. Some men, and most women, experience no symptoms so early detection is essential. This test can detect genital gonorrhea but does not identify an infection in other areas such as the rectum or throat.

Result ranges

DetectedNot detected
The patient received a detected gonorrhea test result. Gonorrhea was detected in the patient’s urine sample and they need treatment for the infection.The infection was not detected in the patient’s urine sample at the time of testing.

HIV

Result type: Qualitative

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a blood-borne virus that attacks immune cells and can develop into AIDS in the later stages. Most people who get HIV get it through anal or vaginal sex, or sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment.

Result ranges

ReactiveNon-reactive
A reactive test result is not a confirmed diagnosis of HIV, but the patient’s blood sample has shown signs that follow-up testing is required.A non-reactive test result means that signs of the infection were not found in the patient’s blood sample at the time of testing. This is a highly accurate test, however, there is a small risk of a false-negative test result with any form of testing. This risk is greater if the instructions provided with the kit were not followed. There is usually a 4 to 12 week window period from the time of exposure for HIV to become detectable in the blood. If a patient tested for HIV before 12 weeks have passed or they are concerned they may have been exposed to the infection, it is important that the patient repeats the test and talks to their doctor about any concerns.

Trichomoniasis

Result type: Qualitative

Trichomoniasis is the most common curable STD. Only 30% of people with this infection develop symptoms, so regular testing is important. If left untreated, the infection can last for months or even years.
