Requiring only a vaginal swab, the Visby Medical Sexual Health Click Test can deliver test results for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis in under 30 minutes.

It is critical for women to take charge of their sexual health. Many STIs have no obvious signs or symptoms, being proactive not only to stay healthy now and for your reproductive health, but also to limit the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the community.

“A healthy sexual life is something we hope everybody can enjoy,” said Dr. Gary Schoolnik, a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Visby Medical Chief Medical Officer. “And it’s important that one be thoughtful and responsible when enjoying a healthy sexual life.”

Some of these responsible measures include using condoms, limiting the number of sexual partners you have, getting tested for STIs on a regular basis, and getting tested between partners. And thanks to a new FDA-cleared test, getting tested and treated for STIs is faster and easier than ever.

Fast, reliable results in one visit

Using a sample from a self-collected vaginal swab, the Visby Medical Sexual Health Click Test can detect Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis with ~97 percent accuracy or greater. The test returns results in less than 30 minutes, whereas other tests can take several days. This allows patients to receive testing, diagnosis, and treatment all in one visit.

“That reduces the risk of someone falling through the cracks and not getting their infection treated before they can spread it to somebody else,” said Dr. Ina Park, a professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the UC San Francisco School of Medicine.

STIs are not a rare occurrence. In fact, the CDC estimates indicate approximately one in five people in the U.S. had an STI on any given day in 2018.  Fortunately, nearly all STIs are curable, or at least manageable. The best way to limit their spread and the harm they cause is by being proactive about your sexual health, and the Visby Medical Sexual Health Click Test is a key tool for doing just that.
