It is no secret that STDs are common nowadays. Just about how common, you ask?

According to WebMD:

More than 65 million Americans have an incurable STD. Each year, 20 million new cases are reported; half of these infections are among people ages 15 to 24 and they can have long-term consequences.

Every day, there are thousands of searches on search engines such as Google and Yahoo! for terms like “std testing centers” and “std testing near me”. Now, concerned users do not even need to go any further than the app store. Developers JACO have developed an app called STD Testing Centers Locator that allows the user to find local STD testing labs and order different testing programs ranging from $14 to over $200 directly from the app.

The process is extremely simple, once the user downloads the app and finds a local testing center (there are over 4,000 nationwide), all they need to do is order a test, walk in to a local testing center, and the results are posted within 24-48 hours via e-mail. For positive results, the service allows the user to consult with a physician for treatment.

JACO has stated that they want to help those who are nervous about talking to their doctor receive confidential std testing, even as soon as the same day. All results are 100% confidential.

To learn more about this app, check out the STD Testing Center Locator app in the Google Play store.
