Receive and open your kit
The kit will include supplies for a urine sample (urine collection cup, pipette, and collection tube) as well as supplies for a blood sample (blood collection card, lancet).
02
Prepare to use your kit
Get your blood flowing by drinking plenty of water, doing some jumping jacks, or running your hands under warm water. Try not to urinate for an hour prior to collection.
03
Produce your samples
Follow the instructions to prick your finger and collect several drops of blood on the blood collection card. Then, collect your urine sample in the collection cup and pipette the proper amount into the collection tube that contains the preservation liquid.
04
Package and return your kit
Place your samples in the appropriate biohazard bags, and place them back into the kit box. Reseal the box using the double-sided tape. Place the pre-paid return label over the previous label and mail the kit back.

Your results will be available in your online dashboard within 5 days of our lab receiving your sample. This report will include what to do next if any of your results are positive (indicating possible infection).

At-home testing for 6 STIs

For men and other people with penises, STIs are more likely to have no symptoms at all. That means you may not know you have one — unless you test.
01

Chlamydia

02

Gonorrhea

03

Hepatitis B

04

Hepatitis C (antibodies)

05

HIV 1 and 2

06

Syphilis

Chlamydia is a common STI caused by bacteria. Some people with chlamydia will experience pain in their genitals or discharge, but many will have no symptoms.

Chlamydia is easily treated with antibiotics. If chlamydia is left untreated, it could affect a person’s fertility or spread to a partner.
Gonorrhea is a common STI caused by bacteria. Some people with gonorrhea will experience pain while urinating or discharge, but many will have no symptoms.

Gonorrhea is easily treated with antibiotics. If gonorrhea is left untreated, it could affect a person’s fertility or spread to a partner.
Hepatitis B is a virus that can spread via sex, and can cause liver infection and inflammation. Some people with hep B will have abdominal pain, fever, or fatigue, but many will have no symptoms.

Hepatitis B can’t be cured with antibiotics, but about 95% of people infected with the virus will recover on their own in 4–8 weeks. In rare cases, people can become hep B “carriers,” with long-term contagious infections.
Hepatitis C is a virus that can spread via sex, and can cause liver infection and inflammation. Some people with hep C will have abdominal pain, fever, or fatigue, but many will have no symptoms, or may not have symptoms for years or even decades after infection.

A hepatitis C antibody test will tell you if you’ve ever had a hep C infection. If you test positive, you’ll need an additional test to measure the amount of hepatitis C virus in your blood. Hepatitis C can typically be treated with antiviral medications. If hep C is left untreated, it can cause damage to the liver or spread to other people.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that can spread via sex. Some people with HIV will have temporary flu-like symptoms, while others will have no symptoms.

HIV affects the immune system and can reduce a person’s ability to fight off infections. HIV can’t be cured with antibiotics, but antiviral medication can reduce symptoms and the chance of spreading HIV. If HIV is left untreated, it could develop into AIDS, a disease of the immune system.
Syphilis is a common STI caused by bacteria. Some people with syphilis will experience genital sores, but some will have no symptoms.

Syphilis is easily treated with antibiotics. If syphilis is left untreated, it could affect a person’s fertility, spread to a partner, or have wide-ranging impacts on the body and brain.

Frequently asked questions

An STI is any infection that can spread via sex. (Some STIs can also be spread in other ways.)

A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is the presence of any bacteria, virus, or other pathogen that can be spread via sex. A sexually transmitted disease (STD) refers to the illness, or symptoms, caused by the infection.

In many cases, an STI may not have any symptoms. However, an infection without symptoms can still spread to others, or cause more damage inside your body.

This test screens for the presence of STIs, even if you don’t have any symptoms.

STI testing is a screening that uses samples of urine, blood, or other body tissues to look for indicators that a person might have a sexually transmitted infection.

STI tests look for genetic material from specific bacteria or viruses, or for the presence of specific antibodies — immune cells that show your body is reacting to a particular infection.

This test kit can detect the pathogens or antibodies associated with:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV 1 and 2
  • Syphilis

No. You can order an STI Test Kit or a sperm freezing bundle without a prescription from a doctor.

The CDC recommends testing every 3–12 months, depending on your risk factors. You should consider STI testing:

  • After you’ve had unprotected sex with a new person, or before having unprotected sex with a new person
  • If a previous partner tells you they have an STI
  • If you have symptoms such as pain in your genitals or pelvic, pain while urinating, sores, or discharge
  • If you’re planning fertility treatment such as IVF or IUI
  • If you’re considering or planning to freeze your sperm

In a traditional clinic or lab, STI testing involves:

  • A urine sample
  • A blood draw
  • Possibly a swab of your genitals or rectum

Legacy’s at-home STI testing kit requires:

  • A urine sample
  • A few drops of blood, obtained via a finger prick

Contents include:

For urine collection

  •  A collapsible urine collection cup
  •  A pipette
  •  A urine collection tube (preservative liquid included)
  • A large specimen bag

For blood collection

  • A blood collection card
  • Two alcohol pads
  • A sterile gauze pad
  • Single use lancets
  • Two adhesive bandages
  • A small specimen bag with desiccant pack

Legacy’s STI Test Kit is shipped using USPS First Class Mail. It will arrive 1–3 business days after you place your order.

After you complete your tests, you’ll mail your samples back to our lab. This shipping will take approximately 1–3 business days. Then, your results will be available in your client dashboard 3–5 business days after our lab receives the samples.

Overall, the testing process takes about 1 week.

This is a male STI testing kit, intended for use by people with penises. STI testing for people with vaginas involves different testing methods, and this kit will not return accurate results.
Legacy’s at-home STI test kit is not covered by insurance. However, it costs just $150.
Legacy's at-home STI testing kit is not currently eligible for coverage or reimbursement from an FSA or HSA.
A positive result means that a specific bacteria, virus, or antibody was detected in your urine or blood samples. This indicates that you may have a current or prior infection, but it’s not a confirmed diagnosis.

You’ll receive next steps as part of the results for your at-home STI testing kit. If you’ve received a positive result(s), we strongly recommend contacting your doctor as soon as possible to diagnose and treat any infections. We also recommend contacting any recent sexual partners to let them know they should be tested.

Depending on your state and local protocols and your results, the lab may be required to confidentially report your positive results to the Department of Health.
Yes. Legacy’s at-home STI screening kit is tested in a CLIA-certified laboratory. Every test performed as part of this kit is nearly 100% specific and sensitive, meaning it has a very low chance of producing false positives or negatives.
At-home STI testing is available in every US state except New York. Due to state regulations, Legacy cannot send STI Test Kits to New York addresses. If you live in New York, you cannot currently purchase this item.
STI testing is not required by Legacy. However, STI screening prior to freezing sperm is required by many fertility clinics. To ensure that your sample can be used at any fertility center or medical practice in the future, we strongly advise STI screening in the 6 months prior to freezing a sample.

Our at-home STI test kit is included with For Tomorrow and Forever packages. If you are purchasing a For Today kit with monthly, yearly, or 5-year cryogenic storage, we recommend ordering an at-home STI kit as well.
If you’re doing an STI screening before you freeze a sperm sample, we recommend doing STI screening before or at the same time as your sperm analysis kit.

If you’re doing STI testing simply to screen for possible infection, you can do it at any time.
Not necessarily. Your STI results are valid for 12 months. If you’re freezing a sample and it’s been more than a year since you got your STI results, you should consider doing an updated STI test.
In 49 of 50 states, the STI screening required by most fertility clinics is identical to the panel we offer: chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, HIV 1 & 2, and syphilis.

In California, fertility clinics may also require screening for HTLV (human T-lymphotropic virus). Unfortunately, there is currently no at-home testing option for this virus. If you may freeze or use your sperm sample in California, we recommend talking to your doctor about in-person HTLV testing.
Yes. Depending on your results, your samples may be “quarantined,” or stored separately from others’, to prevent any cross-contamination (though cross-contamination is extremely unlikely).

However, we cannot guarantee that your chosen fertility clinic will allow you to store or use STI-positive semen samples in the future. We recommend discussing this with your fertility clinic.
No, there is no additional cost for storing a sperm sample from an STI-positive person.
Yes, depending on your clinic’s regulations. Depending on your results, your samples may be “quarantined,” or stored separately from others’, to prevent any cross-contamination (though cross-contamination is extremely unlikely).

When used in IUI or IVF, sperm is typically “washed,” or separated from the semen. The semen is what carries infection, not the sperm itself. The process of sperm washing is very effective at removing pathogens from sperm samples.

However, there is always the small possibility that someone who is inseminated with an STI-positive sample could contract an STI. Therefore, you should consult your doctor about the necessary consent forms or other paperwork required to use your sample.
These results are for your review only, and should not be considered a diagnosis. If you have questions about your results, please speak to your doctor.
No. Because we’re a digital clinic, we can’t diagnose you with an illness or prescribe treatment. However, we will offer guidance on next steps with your results.

Your personal doctor or a clinic should be able to provide you with the proper medication or other treatment for any infections.
