Yes, you can get a lab order for STD testing online. At PlushCare, you can meet with a board-certified doctor during a virtual appointment to receive a lab order for an STD panel. This will allow you to go to a local lab and provide a urine or blood sample needed for the test.

On average, STD tests take several days to one week to get results after the samples are sent to the lab. Having a sample drawn for the test typically takes 15 minutes. With an STD testing lab order from PlushCare, your STD test results will be sent to your doctor within 3-5 business days or less.
The cost of STD testing will depend on whether you have medical insurance. Many health insurance plans provide coverage for STD tests, meaning that you would pay a lower cost to get a test. The price of STD testing without insurance varies based on which type of STD test is taken. Testing costs may also differ based on if they are administered at a lab or clinic.
The time it takes for STD symptoms to appear will depend on which STD a patient has. Symptoms may appear within a few days or weeks for STDs such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. For other STDs, symptoms may not develop for months, or there may be few or no symptoms. With online STD testing, a patient can discuss symptoms with a doctor, receive a lab order, get test results, and find out if they need treatment.
A blood test is frequently used to detect and diagnose sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as herpes, syphilis, and HIV. A urine test, which is used to detect chlamydia and gonorrhea, may also be ordered by a physician along with a blood test as part of an STD panel.
