I have never heard of some of these infections. Are they serious?
Some bacterial infections can cause problems
if left untreated. Most infections are easy to treat using appropriate antibiotics
so it is important to be tested.
Unfortunately the NHS does not test for some of these infections so the only way to get tested for these is to use a private medical service such as The STI Clinic.
How It Works
The STI Clinic enables you to purchase a sample kit which you use and post back to our laboratory
where your sample is tested and analysed. If your test turns out to be positive, we will provide
you with medication.
How does it work?
The test is based on either a urine sample or a vaginal swab. You provide a sample using
the testing kit that we will supply. The lab will then use your sample to ascertain if
you have any of the infections listed above.
What if I test positive for any of these infections?
We will prescribe an appropriate
antibiotic or anti-viral for next day delivery.
How long does the test result take?
The results for the full screen are normally back within 36 hours of the sample being
received at the lab. This is the quickest turnaround time in the UK for this comprehensive
test and has been made possible by significant investment in the latest lab technology.
How reliable are the results?
We use one of the UK's leading pathology labs and the process is the
same as if you were to use your own doctor other than the fact that we do not need
you to visit us in order to provide the sample.
How long should I wait after a risky event?
Some of the infections will not show up in a test for around 2 weeks so this
is the length of time we recommend waiting after a sexual encounter that might put
you at risk of picking up one of these infections. You can get tested before the 2
weeks is up but if the result is negative, we will recommend a retest with a new sample.
