Hi,

I can't seem to find anyone in my area that will do a blood test - Planned Parenthood, etc, only swabs.

Can you recommend a good/reliable test to order online?

Thanks!

Hi Betsy,

I just wanted to post about my online testing experience in case anyone else wanted to try it. I used Health Check USA - because they were cheaper. So easy! Paid online and had an email sent to me right away with confirmation to bring to the lab. I was able to pick a lab near me that was open on Saturdays! Took blood and the results were available online in 3 days. Questions in the middle were answered instantly via email or phone. Great experience.

My only concern was that when I went to the lab they didn't ask for id. I found that a bit odd. Even my own hospital asks for id!

Again, thanks for the advice.

the point of the online testing is anonymity ! the paper you present is all you need to show up with.

oh, interesting. i guess that makes sense. i was thinking that if someone was requested to test for something for legal purposes they could easily give the paper to someone else to test who they know is clear... :shock:
