Home-based STI testing
- Imagine it's possible to test yourself at home for sexually transmitted infections (STIs; chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas) for free via a urine sample or vaginal swab. If you needed testing, would you use this free home testing?
- If it costs the same, would you prefer being tested for STIs at home or in-person? Why?
- How would you like to receive your home STI test kit if you needed one (mailed, pick up at clinic/school/doctor's office/pharmacy, some other way)? Why?
- What, if anything, would make you uncomfortable using home STI testing?
- Do you feel confident that you could correctly collect a urine sample at home if you were given instructions? Why or why not?
- If you have a vagina, do you feel confident that you could correctly collect a vaginal swab at home if you were given instructions? Why or why not?
- If you needed to be tested for a sexually transmitted infection (STI), what would prevent you from using a home-based STI test?
- What would make home-based STI testing a good option for you?
- Would you feel comfortable returning your sample by mail in a pre-paid envelope? Why or why not?
- How many days would you be willing to wait for the results of a home-based STI test?
- Would you be willing to pay for a home-based STI test kit if you needed it? If yes, how much would you be willing to pay?
