Case and Point
Popular dating sites such as Tinder and Bumble don’t really do a good job educating the public on STI prevention, rather it’s the individuals own intuition and gut feelings to determine safety; who really thinks all that clear in the heat of the moment. New Century Labs promotes blood testing for folks who are sexually active who, engage in the world of online dating. We encourage you to talk to your partner(s) to test their blood for STD’s, including HIV—just 1 blood test can save your health.
One of our customers who we will call Jane Doe called to express her fanatical experience with us about a man she had met on one of the mainstream dating sites, which we wont mention, where one of her conditions before she had an intimate relationship with him was to order STD tests and to share his results with her. Much to the gentlemen’s dismay he tested positive on various STD’s. Jane Doe was relived, saved, and empowered to have such awareness. Not everyone is like Jane Doe, and not everyone knows you can order your own blood tests online—we believe this type of access should be the duty of popular dating sites to help inform their audience.
Symptoms and Facts
According to the CDC, about 30,000 new HIV infections occur every year; often times HIV can be symptomless for years or feeling like you have the case of the flu. Just because you have the case of the flu doesn’t mean you have HIV. However with dating apps comes with higher risks of getting infected.

Our company slogan means what is said: “Don’t Just Think You’re Healthy, Know You’re Healthy.” This is truly a lifestyle- our employees and customers truly live by this mindset, as we want to share access to STD testing and awareness to all who plan on being sexually active on dating sites. Don’t feel shy to request your partner to get tested, as this could save your health and the health of others.
We know that getting blood tests is a daunting task traditionally. Let’s face it you were raised to call your doctor’s office, make an appointment that could take weeks, confess to your doctor all those uncomfortable conversations.
With access to ordering STD blood tests on demand, on your terms at NewCenturLabs.com, we believe you will be much more motivated to order your STD tests, so you can have a meaningful conversation with your doctor, and your partner about the state of your health.
