Hi. My name is Randy, and this is my website.
I’m a happy, single marketing director in Chicago, IL.
I built this site to make it easy for anyone to find the right STD test for their needs, privacy and budget, using their smartphone.
Why I Built This Site
Without going into too much detail, a couple of months ago I had a great night out with a wonderful person who later found out she might have an STD. I received her call when I was out of town on business, with no trustworthy laptop or computer nearby (I never use a hotel computer for something this personal).
I was frantic – my trip was going to last another 3 weeks, and I really needed to know if I had a problem.
So, like many others, I started up a new Chrome Incognito (private) tab on my Samsung smartphone and searched Google to learn about my STD test options.
What I found disappointed me. Most of the websites I visited were pretty old, slow or unusable on my phone. There were a few mobile-friendly sites, mainly from vendors of at-home tests, but I wasn’t sure I wanted one of those (I know at-home tests aren’t as accurate as walk-in clinics and online STD tests).
There had to be a better way.
What I really needed was a simple mobile website that compares all available STD test options, so I could choose the right type of test and vendor for my needs and budget.
Before I became a marketing director, I designed and built websites. I had been wanting to dive into mobile websites for a while (for fun & to maintain my skills). So, I decided to solve the “find an STD test” problem for others who might share my predicament.
Because when you need to know if you have an STD – you REALLY need to know.
Anyway, I ended up buying a test from STDCheck.com. The whole process took maybe 15 minutes over 3 days, including a short trip to a local clinic where they took my sample (anonymously).
Thankfully, I was disease-free. Big load off.
So this is my first mobile site. If you find any problems or something needs correcting, please let me know.
I’m also interested in learning about other mobile-friendly sites and resources to link out to, so leave me a message if you have a recommendation or two.
Best of luck on your test!
P.S. Don’t be embarrassed! Millions of people get tested every year. It’s just the smart thing to do. Especially if you’re single and sexually active.
