LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital health innovator myLAB Box, the first nationwide at-home STD testing service, is expanding its reach. Now, customers as young as 16 years of age can use the service and be proactive about their sexual health. This is an unprecedented move for at-home STD testing, which previously required users to be18 or older.
"Many people become sexually active in their mid-teens," stated Dr. Gary Richwald, myLAB Box's Chief Science Officer. "Unfortunately, without proper testing, teens are very vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections, which often have no symptoms. Many are too nervous to go to a clinic or their on-campus physician. Being able to access regular screening online will help save lives and build positive sexual health habits to last a lifetime. I'm proud that myLAB Box has taken this step and continues to lead the industry in providing quality health services on demand."
This new feature comes right on the heels of myLAB Box's last major innovation: an extragenital testing option, which allows for screening of the rectum and throat regions in addition to the typical genital test. Giving customers access to extragenital tests allows myLAB Box to help users take an even more thorough control of their health - a step that many traditional screening services are lacking.
myLAB Box is changing the way we think about sexual health:
● No matter your lifestyle, there's an easy & affordable at-home STD test packages for you
● Keep it private with discreet packaging and free shipping
● Tests can be used whenever, wherever
● Lab-certified results provide total peace of mind
● myLAB Box offers free physician treatment consultations for those with positive results.
