Sexual health testing is vital - many STDs do not have symptoms until they are serious. We offer fast turnaround on STD results, knowledgeable GPs and nurses and confidential service.

For peace of mind regarding your sexual health, our full sexual health package is a comprehensive screening covering all of the major and most common sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, Hepatitis B and C, syphilis, and HIV. We also include a swab test that can check for other bacterial infections. The test package includes an examination and consultation with one of our experienced sexual health professionals, who will interpret your results and organise any prescriptions or treatments you may need.

When should I get tested?

It is always recommended that you have a full sexual health screening if you are noticing symptoms, or if you have a new sexual partner. You may also want to have the test if you have had sex with someone who has been diagnosed with an STI, or if you have any other concerns about your sexual health. If you have multiple partners, it is recommended that you get tested every three to six months as a safety measure.

What does the test include?

The Comprehensive Sexual Health Screen includes a blood test (HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C), urine test (chlamydia and gonorrhoea), and an optional swab check (bacterial infections).

What to Expect

Step 1

Preparing for test

Please arrive well-hydrated to ensure ease of taking your blood sample, and with a full bladder. For women, it is advised that you do not book the test on a day when you have your period.
 
Step 2

During the test

Your test involves a consultation with an experienced sexual health professional, who will ask you about your medical and sexual history, and discuss the various testing options with you. They will ask you questions about contraception, your sexual partners and practices, and other questions about your sex life. We observe a strict confidentiality policy, and all of the information given during your visit will be treated with the utmost care. No personal details or test results will be shared with anyone outside of the sexual health service without your permission. After the consultation, an examination will be performed, and your blood, urine, and swab samples were taken.
 
Step 3

Results

It is entirely up to you how you want to receive your results. You can receive a telephone call from the doctor who examined you, or they can be sent by email. You can also have them in hard copy through the post, or come in to collect them in person.

FAQs

I am not experiencing symptoms, why do I need to get a sexual health check?

Not all STDs present with symptoms. Chlamydia, for example, one of the more common infections, can develop in the body without any symptoms at all, but if it is left untreated, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which scars the fallopian tubes and can cause infertility.

I am experiencing some sexual symptoms, but I’d rather not get tested. Is there a chance they will clear up on their own?

If you have contracted an STD, you will need to have medical treatment, usually in the form of antibiotics, to clear it up. Unlike cervical cell changes, for example, which sometimes clear up on their own, infections only get worse.

Does my partner need to be tested?

If it has been some time since you or your partner have been tested, or if either of you is noticing symptoms, it is recommended that you both have a sexual health screen.
