About your visit with Your Sexual Health

Once you’ve deposited your sample it will be sent to our laboratory for testing via first class post. Turnaround times vary depending on the test that you’ve taken and the day that you’ve taken it. Once your sample is received by the laboratory it will be tested to the highest standard of medical accuracy.
You’ll be notified of your results via the contact method specified on purchase. In the event that your sample returns positive you’ll also be offered a free telephone GP consultation. Our doctor will be able to discuss any questions you may have about your condition and prescribe you the most effective medication to treat it.
Every test requires that you wait until the incubation period has passed in order to give you an accurate test result. The incubation period is the time between exposure and the time when the infection is at a detectable level within your body. This period varies for each test with details available on our private STI Tests page.
If you have symptoms, it’s likely that the period has already passed and your test will offer an accurate result. However, in the event of any negative results on these occasions, retesting is always recommended.
If you have any questions about our accuracy dates please contact our customer services team on 0161 660 2599 and one of our experts will be able to help you.
Unfortunately, many STIs show no symptoms and therefore the only fully effective way to find out if you have a sexually transmitted infection is to get tested. Some general symptoms that you can look out for include: –
- Discharge from the penis or vagina
- Pain when going for a wee
- Lower abdominal pains
- Sores, lesions, blisters or a rash in any area where there has been sexual contact
If you notice any of these symptoms it’s important that you are tested or seek medical help. To find the most suitable test for you contact our customer services on 0161 660 2599.
There are many circumstances in which sexual health testing is the sensible and safe thing to do, including: –
- Following a one night stand, in particular if you didn’t use protection
- If you’ve been told by a former sexual partner that I have a particular STD
- Before you start a new relationship to avoid passing anything on to your partner
- As a general check-up if you’re sexually active and you’ve had multiple sexual partners in the previous year
- If you have symptoms that are common with sexually transmitted infections
We can also offer tests should you require any certification, either to support an international visa application or to be used for IVF purposes.
