Once you’ve deposited your sample it will be sent to our laboratory for testing. We’ll notify you of your results using the contact method specified at the time of booking. In the event your test returns positive you’ll also be offered a free telephone GP consultation. This will allow you to discuss your results and ask any questions. We can also offer a prescription so that you can get the treatment you need.
We can carry out a wide range of tests at our Exeter clinic, simply purchase a test to complete your booking and a member of our team will be in touch.
It’s important that you wait for the incubation period to pass before booking a test. The incubation period is the time between exposure and when the test will offer accurate results. This is because it can take the infection a number of days to develop to detectable levels.
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.
