Q&A

A space for sharing our experience by answering questions that others like you have asked before.

How much does STD testing cost?

The doctor’s consultation for assessing your risk and recommending the right tests will cost between 20 and 40 euros. The cost of the tests depends on which tests you end up doing, as well as on the lab’s prices (the same test may cost more in Milan than in Naples). You can expect to spend between 70 euros and 450 euros for an STD testing panel. The quotation of the tests will be provided at the lab. You can request to know the cost of STD testing before taking the tests, so you don’t commit to a fee that you don’t know yet.

How long does STD testing take?

Results can be ready in 2 days for some tests, while others are likely to require a week to 10 days. This depends on the lab and the type of test. Same day STD tests are not commonly available in Italy.

How will I get my results?

You can ask the lab to email you the results, once ready, so you can receive them even if you have already moved to a different area. Labs provide safe online access to results, just remember to request it when you go in for the sample collection, as you will be required to sign an authorization form and get your login and password. If you do not wish to get your results online, you can go and collect them in person

How soon can you get tested for an STD?

Depending on the type of risk you ran into, you may need to get tested right away, within 72 hours, or you may need to wait a few days for more reliable results. As window periods of different STIs vary, it’s best to get advised by a doctor about this. In any case it’s better to err on the side of caution and get tested sooner rather than later. You can always re-test in a few weeks time.

What do I do if I have an STD?

If you have an STD you will need to see a doctor in order to get diagnosed and treated. Sometimes further testing will be required, while in other cases the doctor will be able to diagnose your STI through an examination. In this case, book directly an appointment with a doctor. See a doctor

Can I use my insurance to pay?

It depends on whether your insurance policy covers diagnostic tests, and also on whether the lab accepts your insurance. You can pay with your insurance if your policy covers you and if your insurance is in the list of our insurance partners. For questions specific to your insurance plan, please call your insurance provider.
