We offer a wide range of private STI tests in Bournemouth, including tests against all common sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis. Our tests are taken using either a blood, urine or swab sample. They’re separated into four main types of tests, which include: –
- Profile Screens – our Profile’s diagnose multiple conditions using the same sample, which is brilliant for offering complete Peace of Mind
- Individual Tests – diagnoses one or two conditions at a time which is good if you believe you’ve come into contact with a particular STI
- Early Detection – these tests allow you to get accurate results, just 10 days following potential exposure rather than waiting the standard 28 days for tests like HIV
- Quick Turnaround – offers a “quick turnaround” of just 4 hours once reaching the laboratory, which will allow you to get your results quicker than with our standard tests.
Once you’ve deposited your sample it will be taken to one of our laboratories for testing where we will gain your results to the highest level of medical accuracy. As soon as we learn your results you will be notified by your preference of either telephone or email.
In the unfortunate event that your results are positive you’ll also receive a free telephone consultation with a GP from our partner medical organisation. They will be able to offer you any advice you may have about the condition. They can also offer treatment options via their prescription service and arrange onward referral should it be required.
All of our tests are only accurate following a wait time of around 10 – 28 days after exposure. This is the time it takes for your body to react to the infection in a manner that makes it detectable. Wait times vary for each of our tests and details can be found on our private STI tests page. As a general rule though: –
- Early Detection Tests = 10-14 days
- Urine sample Tests = 14 days
- Standard HIV and Blood Tests = 28 Days
- Swab = When symptoms appear or 14 days depending on the test
If you’re symptomatic then your test will usually give an accurate reading from the point that symptoms appear. If you have any questions please contact our customer services team for more information on 0161 660 2599.
The symptoms of each sexually transmitted infection are different and they vary from person to person. In fact, many sexually people won’t notice any symptoms at all, but they can still spread the STI if they have unprotected sex with someone. Although there are no definite things to watch out for, some general symptoms include: –
- Penile, vaginal or anal discharge
- Pain when urinating
- Lower abdominal pains
- Any rashes, blisters or sores in an area that’s been in sexual contact
If you notice any of these symptoms you should be tested immediately. Contact our customer services team on the chat below or on 0161 660 2599 to find the most suitable test.
