    • Complete women’s STI test panel: This panel includes HIV screening, syphilis blood testing, 3-site chlamydia and gonorrhea (vaginal, throat, rectal) testing, swabs for genital herpes, trichomoniasis testing, mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen) testing, bacterial vaginosis (BV) testing, and candida albicans (yeast infections) testing.

    We highly recommend booking an appointment so you don't have to wait, but most labs will take walk-ins.

    Yes, if your doctor believes that a lab test would be beneficial for you, they can order a lab test for you. After receiving the lab order, you'll visit a lab location, have your lab test(s) run, and the results should be sent to you from PlushCare within 3-5 business days.
