Once you’ve visited one of our Edinburgh clinics to deposit your sample it will be sent to our laboratory for testing. It will be tested for the STDs that you’ve chosen with a diagnosis to delivered to the highest level of accuracy possible at a prestigious laboratory. Turnaround times vary depending on the test you choose – more information can be found on the tests page.
In the event that your results return positive, you’ll be offered a free GP consultation with a GP from our partner medical organisation. They will be able to answer any questions you may have will also be able to prescribe you medication to treat the condition or handle any onward referral should it be required.
It may seem like the most sensible thing to do, but getting tested directly after exposure won’t offer accurate results. It takes a period of time for the infection to build up to a detectable level within your body and testing before then will result in a false negative.
The time in between exposure and detectability of your infection is known as incubation period and it varies depending on the disease you’re testing for and the test you’re using. You can find out more about the accuracy dates for all of our tests on our private STD testing products page.
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 is different and many don’t show any symptoms at all, which is why STD testing is the only effective way to diagnose STDs once and for all. However, some common symptoms may 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.
