A few extra notes about The Violet Kit:
Violet Kits are provided free of cost. They are only available to people under the age of 26, and for those living in Maryland.
If you have fever or strong pain in your stomach and/or genital area, see a doctor as soon as possible, rather than waiting for Violet Kit results. Those symptoms could mean something more serious, and you could need faster treatment from a doctor.
Once you swab yourself with the Violet Kit swab, the swab is good for 30 days in the liquid tube. After 30 days of the swab in the liquid, the test won't be valid anymore. If you're ever unsure, just call or text Violet anonymously: (443) 267-7765
If your partner needs a kit, you can help order them one, but we need their contact information, not yours! This is just for medical and legal reasons.
