When was the last time you screened for STIs?

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — are a growing endemic in the United States. The best way to fight against the increasing cases is to get tested regularly and encourage others to do the same.

1 in 5

 Americans were estimated to have an STI in 2018. This stat is undoubtedly growing as specific STI cases have spiked in the last 6 years.

2.5 million

 U.S. cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2021 alone. Help prevent the spread with frequent testing.

Every 12 months

is the minimum frequency the CDC recommends for STI testing. Testing for every new partner and regularly testing every 3 or 6 months if you are at increased risk is advised.

The ten biomarkers were carefully selected based on frequency and relevance.

Treponema pallidum (Syphilis)

Syphilis is an STI caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Unfortunately, rates of syphilis are rising — the CDC recorded 171,074 cases of syphilis in 2021, which is approximately 70,000 more than in 2017.

Hepatitis B Virus (HBV)

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) causes acute and chronic liver disease, also known as hepatitis B. An estimated 880,000 to 1.89 million people in the U.S. have a chronic HBV infection.

Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is less common than HBV but can cause acute and chronic infections. Around 70% of HCV cases develop chronic HCV infections.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1)

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is an infection that damages the immune system. As of 2022, an estimated 39 million people were living with HIV worldwide. HIV-1 is the most common type of HIV.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-2)

Less common globally than HSV-1, human immunodeficiency virus 2 (HIV-2) is found predominantly in West Africa. However, as it is present in other regions, testing for both subtypes is vital to the diagnosis and management process.

Herpes Simplex Virus 1/2 (HSV 1/2)

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV-1) causes oral herpes though it is possible to contract genital HSV-1 after receiving oral sex from someone with an oral HSV-1 infection. Herpes Simplex Virus 2 (HSV-2) is genital herpes. Herpes is widespread, with an estimated 572,000 new infections every year.

Mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen)

Mycoplasma genitalium, or Mgen, is a bacterium spread through vaginal or anal sex. Individuals with Mgen may experience unusual discharge or painful urination.

Chlamydia trachomatis (Chlamydia)

Chlamydia trachomatis causes the infection chlamydia. Chlamydia is the most reported bacterial STI in the U.S., though it rarely shows symptoms.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Gonorrhea)

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the bacterium that causes gonorrhea. It is one of the most common STIs, with an estimated 700,000 new cases every year.

Trichomonas vaginalis (Trichomoniasis)

Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is a parasite that causes an infection called trichomoniasis (trich). Affecting mostly women, only 30% of people develop symptoms.

What happens if I am positive for an STI?

imaware offers a complimentary telehealth service with a provider who will guide and support you through the next steps by providing advice, treatment options and prescriptions as needed. After you receive your test results and an email to schedule your optional consultation, you’ll complete a quick intake questionnaire to secure your appointment. If you receive positive test results and don’t immediately book a telehealth visit, we will send you two follow-up email reminders.

What happens if I don’t address my STI?

Left untreated, STIs can cause serious long-term health issues, including:

  • Damage to tissue and organs: STIs can cause permanent damage throughout your body, from your mouth, throat and eyes to your liver, anus and genitals.
  • Infertility: Untreated STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea may lead to other severe conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or epididymitis, which damage the reproductive system.
  • Malignant cancer: STIs may increase your risk of certain cancers, including cervical, anal, genital, mouth and throat, if not addressed over the long term.

These risks are why our tests include a complimentary telehealth appointment, where you can address your results and seek treatment options to avoid long-term effects on your health.

Are positive test results completely confidential?

While HIPPA privacy laws generally protect your health information, there are certain diseases that we are obligated to report to your state health department — just like all other testing companies, hospitals, and clinics — because diseases like HIV are considered a public health risk.

What’s the difference between an STI and an STD?

Sexually transmitted infection (STI) and sexually transmitted disease (STD) are both terms used to refer to an infection spread through sexual activities. 

Recently, STI has become the preferred term for many individuals. Why? Sexually transmitted infection is more accurate because even though select infections can eventually develop into diseases, most do not. The move away from STD is also due to the stigma associated with the word disease and efforts to normalize talking about these infections.

Who should take this test?

Staying up to date on your STI status is essential for everyone who is sexually active. The minimum frequency recommended for STI screening by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is every 12 months, so consider adding this to your annual health checkup. Individuals at higher risk based on certain criteria, such as the type of sexual activity engaged in, number of new partners or regularity of unprotected sex, are advised to increase testing frequency to at least every 3 or 6 months. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms or meet any of the conditions below, you should pursue testing:

  • Unusual genital or anal discharge
  • Pain during urination, bowel movements or intercourse
  • Increased frequency of urination
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Itching, rashes, lesions or blisters on or around genitals
  • Having unprotected sex 
  • Starting a new relationship
  • Partner reports that they have an STI

That said, many STIs are asymptomatic, and with the current spike in cases, it is as important as ever to protect yourself and others by being aware and conducting regular screenings.

Who can order this test?

This test is only for adults aged 18 and older in the United States*. STIs are not limited to a specific demographic, and many are asymptomatic, so regular testing is encouraged for everyone!

*Unfortunately, this test is not available in the state of New York due to state regulations.

How should I prepare for this test?

Before taking this test, you should carefully review our tips on how to prepare. For example, you’ll need to ensure you are not menstruating, have not taken antibiotics within the last seven days and have abstained from sexual activity for at least 24 hours. Be prepared to collect your first urine of the day and ship both your urine and blood samples back via USPS on the same day as collection.

Upon receiving your test kit, carefully review the detailed instructions before familiarizing yourself with the supplies provided. Following the directions, you will need to urinate into a collection cup, collect a few drops of blood from your fingertip, prepare your samples for transport and then mail them to our lab. For specific instructions, head to

Do the test kits arrive in discreet packaging?

For increased privacy, the STI test kit comes in a generic imaware branded box with no test name visible on the exterior. The test name, biomarkers included in the test and other information are available on a card within the box.

How do I receive my test results?

You’ll receive an email from us within five business days from when your sample was shipped back to the lab. The email will contain a link to view and download your test results on our secure digital health platform once they’ve been analyzed by our labs and reviewed by a doctor.

Can my doctor use these results?

Yes. All of our tests are performed by CLIA-certified labs, the gold standard in lab testing quality regulation. If you wish to refrain from using the complimentary telehealth service that comes with this test, there is detailed information within your results report that you can share with your personal healthcare provider. They can use this information to interpret your test results clearly. To see an example of this, you can request a sample report at the top of this page.

Are imaware results as accurate as lab tests?

Our STI test results are very accurate as we use multiplexed molecular assays that demonstrate robust clinical performance, including capabilities for rapid co-detection of multiple STIs from a single sample. All imaware testing is performed in CLIA-approved and CAP-accredited laboratories.

Is the test covered under insurance?

imaware tests are covered by FSAs and HSAs as these accounts can be used to cover medical equipment costs or diagnostic devices. Please check with your benefits coordinator in advance to ensure the test qualifies with your particular plan. We provide an itemized receipt with each imaware test order that can be submitted to your FSA/HSA account. If you need any help with your receipt, please email
