How It Works
Our process enables you to have highly accurate laboratory based tests from the
comfort of your own home. Our tests are easy to use. Women have the choice of providing
a urine sample or taking a vaginal swab. Tests for men use a urine sample. Sample
collection is easy and pain-free. Read more…
Sexual health is a vital aspect of overall well-being. It can, however, be easily
overlooked or ignored due to misplaced embarrassment or, in some cases, a lack
of obvious symptoms.
The STI Clinic makes it easier for people to access tests and treatments for sexually
transmitted infections. Even though the majority of STIs/STDs are easily treatable,
many people find it difficult to get to a sexual health or GUM clinic to be tested, or
are embarrassed to undergo the physical examination which is unnecessary in most cases.
Our mission is to make good sexual health more accessible through our online clinic.
The STI Clinic has teamed up with one of London's leading pathology laboratories
– TDL Pathology –
to provide a sexual health screening service which can be easily accessed online. Sample
collection for our tests can be done at home, with results from our laboratory in 24
hours or less for most tests.
The whole process is quick and simple. We send you the testing kit, you collect a
sample and post it back to us in the prepaid envelope which is provided.
As soon the results are back from the lab we will notify you immediately. If you test
positive for any STD then we will recommend a course of treatment unless it is a blood
borne virus that is detected, in which case a face to face consultation is required. All
treatments are sent by overnight courier so you will have it the day after you
test positive for anything. To learn more about the process,

We check for Chlamydia,
and a full sexual health screen is also available. We can also test for HIV but any
positive result needs to be followed up in a face to face environment. We can also
test for Hepatitis B and C. There is a search option at the top of this page to help you
navigate to the test that you want.
If you would prefer a face to face consultation with a doctor for any STI test then we can
arrange an appointment for you with someone in Harley Street but this will be
considerably more expensive than our online service.
If you want to test for an STI but you are not sure which STI/STD screen is for
you, please do not hesitate to call us on the helpline.
