Is this test right for me?

This is our Basic STI screen and if it’s longer than 28 days since your last exposure you won’t get a more accurate picture of your sexual health. If you’re concerned about exposure through anal or oral sex though, you may need to take a swab sample too. Contact our team to find out more about any of our tests.

This test is only available by visiting one of our specially selected clinics. You’ll be assisted by a nurse or doctor in collecting your sample, before they test them using the latest state of the art testing panels.

Test includes

Chlamydia
Chlamydia is one of the most common STI. Many people with chlamydia will show no symptoms which makes it easy to pass on during unprotected sex. The only way of knowing for certain you have the condition is through effective testing, but common symptoms include pain whilst urinating, unusual discharge in both men and women and pain during sex.
Herpes Simplex (HSV) is a virus that can be transmitted through skin on skin contact with someone who is having an active outbreak, including through vaginal, oral or anal sex. It can cause genital herpes where the condition presents as small blisters that burst to leave red, open sores. It can also present on the face in the form of cold sores. People infected with herpes carry the virus for life and may have outbreaks or flare ups.

Genitalium is a sexually transmitted bacteria that is found in the urinary tract of infected individuals. It rarely shows symptoms, but if left untreated it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease which is linked to infertility. It is passed on through vaginal sex with an infected individual and because there are often no signs of the infection the only way to know you have the condition is through testing.
