Abstract

We offered a point-of-care test for Trichomonas vaginalis to women via the Internet to determine if it was acceptable to women to perform the test at home. Most of the 102 participants felt that it was easy to collect the specimen, follow the instructions, and read and interpret the results for the trichomonas self-testing assay.
