    About at-home STI test kits

    On this page

    If you don't have STI symptoms

    Our STI testing kits are designed for people who don't have symptoms. It's a quick and discreet way to check on your sexual health. You can even do an STI test when you're on your period

    You can use your STI testing kit at home, it 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.

    Please note STI test kits are NOT available for ParcelShop or store collection. 

    If you have STI symptoms

    Our STI testing service is for patients who have NO symptoms. If you are experiencing ANY SYMPTOMS then you should NOT use this service.

    You may need different tests, treatment and an examination to rule out a complication. You should attend your local sexual health clinic or GP.

    Symptoms include: unusual discharge from the vagina or penis; pain or discomfort in the pelvis, testicles or penis; abnormal bleeding from the vagina; discomfort, discharge or bleeding from the rectum.

    How to take the self-test at home

    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 kit will come with all the equipment you need, plus instructions for how to self-test safely and accurately.

    Taking the samples for 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 samples for the tests, send us a message via your Patient Record.

    You'll also receive an envelope to send the samples to our lab partners to test. 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.

    Doctor's STI test advice

    If you're sexually active, it's recommended that you get your sexual health checked regularly. For some people, going to the GP or a sexual health clinic can be inconvenient or uncomfortable – all our tests can be taken at home.

    Don't worry about wasting anyone's time with an STI test if you think you need it. Most STIs can be treated or managed effectively, but only if you know about them. Staying healthy means your sexual partner can too.

    If you test positive for an STI

    Our clinicians will contact you via your Patient Record with your test results. If your test shows markers for HIV, we will call you to discuss the results. If you test positive for chlamydia or trichomonas, we can provide free STI treatment for the infection, if you are clinically suitable.

    For other positive results, we will advise you on where to seek treatment and support or counselling, if you want it.

    Discreet STI treatment

    If you have been diagnosed with an STI already, visit our local sexual health clinic. We can treat chlamydia if you don't have symptoms and are clinically suitable, plus we provide herpes treatment to reduce the severity of an outbreak, and treatment for genital warts.

    Unless you tell us to, we won't share your STI treatment or test information with your GP.

    Other ways to get tested

    Your GP can test and treat you for a range of STIs confidentially. If you're not comfortable going to your regular doctor, you can also visit an NHS sexual health service for information, support, testing and treatment. Find your closest one here.

    If you notice something unusual, or you think you have been exposed to an STI, there is no shame in getting tested – and it's never a waste of time.
