Test Types



Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United States. The infection can affect the vagina, cervix, penis, anus, urethra, throat or eye, and is caused by the bacterium called chlamydia trachomatis.


Gonorrhea is an STD (sexually transmitted disease) that is more common among young men and women between the ages of 15 and 24. It is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacterium.

Hepatitis A

Certain Hepatitis A infections may be mild, lasting roughly some weeks, while others can be severe and extend for months. With the proper diet, rest, and fluids, most people with a Hepatitis A infection will recover without treatment.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a serious liver disease caused by the Hepatitis B virus. The disease, which spreads through contact with the body fluids of an infected person, can vary from mild to severe.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a common liver infection transmitted through contaminated blood. It causes liver inflammation, and does not show symptoms in the early stages, which is why it is referred to as a “silent” disease.

Oral Herpes

Oral Herpes or Herpes type 1 is caused by the Herpes Simplex 1 virus (HSV-1). A person with HSV-1 may have small, painful sores around the lips, mouth, nose, cheeks, chin, throat or gums.

Genital Herpes

Herpes type 2 or genital herpes, as it is otherwise known, is a viral infection caused by the HSV-2 virus (herpes simplex virus type 2), and is spread through intimate contact with an infected individual.

HIV Type 1

HIV also plays havoc with the immune system of the infected person, making him more susceptible to other diseases and infections. An HIV infection can cause Acquired Immune Deficiency Sydrome (AIDS).

HIV Type 2

STDCheckup.net partners with one of the few testing services in the United States that offer the HIV RNA test for detecting the human immunodeficiency virus at an early stage.


Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by bacteria called Treponema pallidum. You can contract the infection if you come into contact with a syphilitic sore during unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex.
