Once you’ve deposited your sample at our STD clinic in Cheltenham, it will be sent to our laboratory for testing. The sample will be posted Royal Mail First Class and will usually arrive the following day depending on the time and day of your appointment. Once it arrives at our laboratory it will be tested to the highest available degree of medical accuracy for sexual health.
The turnaround times for testing will vary depending on the test that you choose and these can be seen on the Tests page. Once we receive your results you’ll be notified via email or phone and your results will then be uploaded to our online portal. In the event that any of our results return positive you’ll also be offered a free telephone GP consultation allowing you to discuss your results with our Doctor and enabling you to receive the medication you require through our prescription service.
The first instinct for many people can be tested immediately after your sexual encounter as a sense of anxiety or worry sets in. Unfortunately this is never the best course of action as all sexual health tests require a degree of time to pass before offering accurate results. This amount of time is referred to as the incubation period and is displayed on our tests page as “Accurate from X Days”.
Testing before this time can lead to false negative results where you think you’re in the clear, but in actual fact the STD is yet to reach a detectable level in your body. Most of our tests require a 14 day or 28 day incubation period, so check before you book and never ignore this advice.
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.
Every patient can be affected by an STD in very different ways. Indeed many patients show no symptoms at all, meaning the only way to truly know if you have an STD is to be tested. However, some common symptoms which may indicate an STD include: –
- Discharge from your penis, vagina or anus
- Pain whilst urinating
- Lower abdominal pains
- Rashes, blisters or sores affecting your genital area
- Blood in between periods for women
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.
