About STI tests

  • If you don't have symptoms

    Our test service is designed for people who don't have symptoms. It's a quick and discreet way to check on your sexual health. Your at-home kit will be posted to you in discreet packaging. Once the lab receives the samples you post back in the provided envelope, you'll have results in 3 working days.

    If you have a new sexual partner, have more than one sexual partner, have had sex without a condom, or are worried you have been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection, we recommend you get tested.

  • If you have symptoms

    If you are experiencing ANY SYMPTOMS then you should NOT use this service. You require an URGENT face-to-face assessment and should seek immediate advice from your local sexual health clinic or GP. Symptoms include: pain when you urinate (wee), increased vaginal discharge, pain or swelling in one or both of your testicles, pain in your lower abdomen (tummy), pain in or bleeding from your rectum (bottom), pain after sex or between periods, discharge or fluid from your penis or rectum.

  • How to take the tests

    Depending on the tests you request, you may be directed to take a swab (from your vagina or throat), give a urine sample, or give a finger-prick blood sample. The test will come with all the equipment you need, plus instructions for how to take the tests safely and accurately. The tests shouldn't hurt, and they can all be done in privacy at home. If you have any questions about how to take the tests, send us a message via your Patient Record.

    You'll also receive an envelope to send the test to our lab partners. They'll process the samples and you should receive results in 3 working days, via Patient Record message. Our clinicians can then advise on the best course of action.

  • About MSM tests

    MSM tests are specifically designed for men who have sex with men. We offer tests for syphilis and HIV (blood test) as well as chlamydia and gonorrhoea at 3 sites: throat (swab), penis (urine sample) and rectum (swab). We recommend the MSM STI Check-Up – this includes 4 tests and is the most thorough way to check on your sexual health.
