|Type of Test||Includes||Price|
|Extended STI Test Kit||Includes return postage and packaging for test||£129.99|
Our extended STI home test kit detects the presence of the following infections:
The test will not detect any of these infections in your throat or anus. This kit may not detect herpes if you do not have active lesions at the time of testing. If you are concerned that you might have herpes, we would recommend that you take a swab test of the area, using a test that is specifically designed for herpes detection.
The test is a PCR test which is an accurate method of analysing a short sequence of DNA or RNA, even in urine samples containing only minute quantities of DNA or RNA.
Some of the infections may not be detected by our extended STI test if you caught the infection within the last 2 or 4 weeks.
If you are worried you may have caught an chlamydia or gonorrhoea from a recent incident, we recommend you wait until 2 weeks after the incident to get tested.
For herpes, trichomonas, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, and gardnerella, it can take 4 weeks after you might have caught them before they can show up on a test. Wait at least 4 weeks before testing for these.
You will receive your test kit from us within 1-2 working days of placing your order.
Results are generally available 3-5 days after your sample reaches the laboratory.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK, and often shows no symptoms.
Gonorrhoea is also a common STI; symptoms in men are most commonly burning pain when peeing or a discharge from the tip of the penis. In women gonorrhoea often shows no symptoms, but symptoms can include pain when peeing or a discharge from the vagina.
Herpes is a common infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). It can cause painful blisters on the genitals and the surrounding areas.
Mycoplasma is caused by a very small parasitic bacterium that can affect both men and women.
Trichomoniasis is caused by a small organism called a flagellate. The infection is mostly without symptoms in men, but often leads to a vaginal discharge in women.
Ureaplasma is a bacterium that can be passed on through sexual contact. A large proportion of the sexually active population is infected with ureaplasma without it causing any problems; however, it can cause symptoms of urethritis (inflammation of the tube that carries urine from the body).
Gardnerella vaginalis is a common cause of vaginal discharge in women or unspecific urethritis in men. A positive test result for gardnerella only requires treatment if you are experiencing symptoms.
If you test positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea or herpes you will be able to order your treatment online. One of our online doctors will review your order and approve appropriate treatment.
If you test positive for any other STI you will need to visit your GP or GUM clinic to get treated.
If you order on Monday to Friday 9am-5pm we will process and send out your test kit the same day. Otherwise orders are sent out on the next working day, which means Monday for orders submitted over the weekend.
