Wap mobile free california sex dating hookup free
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — A California firm is offering a testing service for sexually-transmitted diseases that can be ordered online and done in the privacy of one’s home.
Los Angeles-based my LAB Box is the first nationwide testing service for STDs, which are at an all-time high in the U.
S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The increase in STDs mirrors the growing popularity of dating apps among millennials.
Some experts believe this casual dating and hookup culture has a dark side. Lizellen La Follette says California is seeing an alarming jump in new cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.
One main reason is fewer millennials are practicing safe sex.
Everything can be done online: from ordering the test, to a free phone consultation with a medical doctor, as well as getting a prescription phoned into your pharmacy.Hessenflow recently brought the test and the idea to the Vator Splash tech conference at San Francisco’s Fort Mason. “How are we going to protect you when you come to me at 38 and I want my first baby and you can’t get pregnant? Hessenflow said the doctor consultation included with the service usually includes discussion of safe-sex practices as well as a recommendation to follow up with your personal physician.She explained that, since millennials tend to live their lives online, an online STD infection service seems natural. La Follette says millennials need to hook up with a doctor to come up with long-term plan not to get infected. The cost depends on how many tests you are going to order.“What we’ve done is taken those same tools, and made it very easy for someone to test at home privately, affordably conveniently on their own time,” said Hessenflow. “So, it averages five minutes or less to test.” The samples are mailed back in the self-addressed envelope provided and the lab-certified results are sent electronically within a few days. It ranges from to the deluxe “Love Box” which costs about 0 and will test both you and your partner.Customers can order up to 15 different STD tests online and within days a package arrives in the mail. “If there is a positive, we immediately connect you with a phone consult with a local physician and with common infections they can give you a same-day prescription,” said Hessenflow. Gift certificates are available and the service accepts FSA/HSA cards.
San Francisco residents Alexandra Daigle and her partner Erik Kahn love the idea.
