One of the best things about life in 2018 is the sheer number of things we can do from the comfort of our homes. (If ordering groceries online is wrong, I don’t want to be right.) But convenience aside, health tests that can be performed outside a doctor’s office are increasingly important as medical co-pays skyrocket and a growing number of people struggle to afford health care.

If you have a primary care physician, we recommend you keep him or her in the loop about any testing you may be doing at home — whether it’s a pregnancy test or an assessment of your breast cancer risk. But fortunately, the following at-home health tests are from companies that are more than happy to answer any follow-up questions or concerns. 

Whether you’re seeking convenience, affordability, privacy or all of the above, here are seven at-home health tests you should know about.
