Remember my new obsession with self-swab testing, and the privacy and empowerment it gives to women to participate in their own care? Well, my great friend brought a self-testing chlamydia kit for me from her trip to the UK! What more of a travel gift could a girl ask for?!?! Love. It.
This is how the package appears when one picks it up from a health center.
This is what it looks like just upon opening, snug as a bug-testing kit in a rug.
Package contents include information about the chlamydia testing program, information about the tester, the urine specimen container, and the mailing package for return.
A quick break to admire my friend’s beautiful cat, purring behind me as I purred over this awesome-ness!
Opening of the chlamydia information packet.
Survey for data collection. Clearly there is some need for broader categories throughout, including gender versus anatomy/sex.
And the postage-paid mailing package!
What a brilliant system! And now, with the wonders of lab testing, I wonder if there are plans to add gonorrhea and trichomoniasis, or rule-out STIs by diagnosing BV and yeast, like we can with the NuSwab Plus?
