Embarrassed of testing for STI/STDs?

August 11, 2018

For many of us, the thought of having to go to a sexual health clinic is as daunting as it is embarrassing. Not only do we have to deal with the internal conflict associated with the possibility of having contracted a sexually transmitted infection or disease, but we must announce our presence at a clinic, selling out our privacy to pee in a cup and draw blood. Yes, it is for the greater good of the community and your sexual health, but I believe that this process shouldn’t require sacrifice. Why should you not be granted the privacy that you deserve? Well, stop hiding and throw away that disguise. We’re here to change that!

At Well Revolution, we understand the self-conscious emotions that you may be experiencing and the negativity you feel towards the current STI/STD testing process. We are here to alter the outdated ways of the current sexual health testing paradigm. We want you to have complete control over your sexual health. So, you may be thinking what is it that we provide and how is it we propose to change the testing of sexual health?

The first major change that we have implemented is the provision of privacy. Unlike current methods of testing, where you are required to book an appointment and head to a clinic, we provide you with an STI home test kit. Our kits enable you to test your sexual health from the comfort and privacy of your home.

Results. Unlike conventional wait times associated with sexual health clinics, our tests provide you with a rapid result, where you get a positive or negative result within twenty minutes. Another major factor that concerns you is the privacy of your medical history and health data. With us, you have complete ownership and control of your health data, including when you talk with our doctors.

Included in our STI home test kit packages is the opportunity to talk to one of our qualified doctors. If you feel the need to discuss your sexual health, or if you get a positive result, our doctors are a click away with online video consultations available through your private MyWell account.

Most importantly, we provide you with prompt overnight delivery of our tests and treatments.

So, our message to you is to practice safe sex, test regularly and remain in control. We are here to support you along the way. Tune in to our weekly blogs to find out more about STI/STD and the changes in sexual healthcare that are occurring.

Did you know that many STI's don't have symptoms? If left untreated they can seriously damage your fertility, health and life.

If you’re unsure what to do or if you’re worried about an STI, we’re here to help with safe and easy tests you can do at home.

Don’t risk your health!
