Prevention of STDs is key. This can be done by abstinence or by safe sex practices. Safe sex practices include condom use, limiting the number of sex partners, and avoid sex with people who do have many other sex partners.

To get the discount, you need to go to the website and print out a Test Request form which you will then take to a local Labcorp test center. No appointment necessary, just go during normal business hours. There you will have a blood drawn and pee in a cup.

The test results will be mailed to you, usually within 2-3 days. If the tests have positive results, you will need to follow up with your physician for treatment. To see a sample of test results, click here.
