The First Nationwide At-Home STD Testing Service Also Announces Expanding Age Limits to 14+ in Response to Increase Cases of STDs Among Adolescents; Offers Tips to Parents on How to Talk to Teens about STDs
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 15, 2019
With many students either starting college for the first time, and returning to school, the number of STIs and STDs remain high for this particular demographic. According to the CDC, “there are about 20 million new cases of STDs each year in the United States. About half of these infections are in people between the ages of 15 and 24. Young people are at greater risk of getting an STD.” To that end, myLAB Box, the first nationwide at-home STD testing service, today announced a series of sexual health tips reminders to college students designed to decrease the likelihood of catching a disease during the most formidable years.
Among the sexual health tips from myLAB Box for college students:
To help college students everywhere take greater control of their sexual health, myLAB Box is offering a 20 percent discount from now until the end of September with the following discount code – backtoschool2019. And for students with either a medical Flexible Savings Account (FSA) or a Health Savings Accounts (HSA) accounts, myLAB Box proudly accepts both FSA and HSA as payment options, making its service even more affordable and accessible for men and women in every state.
Ways Parents Can Talk To Their Teen About Safe Sex
As the CDC report indicates, half of the new STD cases are from those between the ages of 15 and 24. The CDC also recommends that all sexually active adolescents should be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia every year. In light of this, myLAB Box has decided to lower its age-gate to 14+ to help young teens stay safe at all times.
To help parents have that candid talk with their adolescent, myLAB Box is here to offer up suggestions for what parents should discuss with their teen before sending them off to college this fall:
“We establish many lifelong habits in our adolescent years. It is why it is especially important to make sure young adults enter their sexual lives with as much information and support as possible,” said Lora Ivanova, CEO & Co-Founder of myLAB Box. “It is common sense that if you want a healthy smile, you should brush your teeth regularly. A healthy sex life is much the same - regular STI testing is a key part of personal hygiene. We encourage adults to lead by example and create a safe space for conversation to ensure the lifelong health of the next generation.”
myLAB Box offers quick and private tests that can be paid for out-of-pocket (and for about half of the price you would at a doctor’s office). These tests take five minutes to complete and are shipped in discreet packaging. You can take them anytime and anyplace. If you live in one of the many states that offer telemedicine, and most do, you can even speak with a doctor and get prescribed your treatment right over the phone for no extra charge. It’s simply the easiest and most convenient way to be tested.
