Looking for STI testing in Calgary? Worried about having to go into a sexual health clinic to get the testing done? Our in-home STI testing can remove those fears and allow you to receive the important care you need from the comfort and safety of your own home. 

Due to the growing demand for our corporate or large bookings and travel testing for COVID-19 antibody or active PCR test collection, our STI /STD Testing Services are on hold. 


Regular STI testing is important for those individuals who are sexually active, especially if they fall into the below categories: 

  • Under the age of 25 
  • Have had more than one sexual partner in the past year
  • Have had unprotected sex in an area where there is a high prevalence of certain STIs

While sexual health is an important aspect of overall health, there is still a stigma attached to STI testing. This stigma manifests itself in the way most people view STI tests, with it being an embarrassing or scary proposition for many. At Ichor Blood Services, we want to help remove those worries with our in-home STI testing service. Here are the three main benefits it can provide.

Ichor Has You Covered

We've recently begun accepting bookings for our COVID-19 serology antibody testing collection service. Your sample is then shipped to our laboratory testing partner, who will determine if you have potentially been exposed to the virus and now have the antibodies for it.

Top 3 Benefits of In-home STI Testing

STI testing has come a long way over the past few decades. But the stigma surrounding it remains. One way to overcome the issues preventing more people from getting the important STI testing they need is by offering in-home STI testing services. But you won't see the government providing this service anytime soon. That's why Ichor has stepped in to fill the void.

Here are the three main benefits our in-home STI testing in Calgary and other cities can provide. 

1) Privacy: By far the biggest benefit in-home STI testing provides those who use it is the privacy it affords them. You don't have to go to a sexual health clinic or somewhere else to get the testing done, running the risk of bumping into someone you know, then having to explain to them why you're there or having to make a story up on the spot. In-home testing allows you to avoid all of these anxiety inducing worries and simply receive your test from the comfort and safety of your own home. 

2) Convenience: The second biggest benefit in-home STI testing provides is the convenient nature of the service. You don't have to take any time off of work or travel across the city to get the testing done. You can just book an appointment time that works for you and your schedule, then sit back and relax and wait for one of our technicians to stop by your place. 

3) Safety: Not having to travel to a sexual health clinic and sit in a crowded waiting room makes in-home STI testing much safer than having to do both of those things. Especially in the age of COVID-19. By booking in-home STI testing through Ichor Blood Services, you won't have to contend with any high touch surfaces or objects or put yourself at higher risk of contracting the disease by being in close proximity to other people.
