Why doesn’t the Nurx Healthy V Kit contain an HPV test?

While HPV is the most common STI, the testing guidelines for HPV differ compared to other STIs as chlamydia and trichomoniasis. According to guidelines, women should get screened for HPV every three to five years (depending on age and health history), but CDC guidelines recommend getting tested for chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and syphilis more often. We decided to keep our home HPV test separate from our STI test kits to avoid over-testing for HPV.
