How it works - As Easy as 1-2-3!

1) Order the FREE home test kit for chlamydia and gonorrhea on this website.  The kit will be mailed to an address of your choice in 3 to 5 days in a plain white envelope. 

2) To use the kit, you swirl a cotton swab in your vagina for several seconds. Place the swab in the tube & mail it back in the envelope provided.  The postage is already paid! 

3) Get your confidential results on this website or by phone one week after mailing back the kit.  If you need treatment you can find free and low cost clinics through this website.

Who should get the kit

The FREE home test kit is for females in Alameda County ages 12 to 25 who are sexually active or have had sex in the past. The kit is best for women who want to test at home instead of going to a clinic.  If you are having symptoms of an STD, DO NOT ORDER THE KIT, instead go to a doctor or clinic right away to get checked.

When to get the kit

Every sexually active woman, 25 and younger, should get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea at least once a year. You should also get tested every time you have a new sex partner.

Why get the kit

Anyone who has had unprotected sex or had a condom break during sex can get chlamydia or gonorrhea. Most women who have chlamydia or gonorrhea will not know it because they will not have any signs or symptoms. Both diseases are easy to treat. However, if you do not treat these diseases they can cause serious problems like lasting pain or not being able to have a baby.
