About your visit with Your Sexual Health

In the case of a laboratory test, once you’ve deposited your sample it will be packed and sent to our laboratory for medical testing against the conditions that you’ve chosen. Turnaround times for each laboratory test vary and you can find more information on our private STI tests page.
For Instant Tests, the nurse or phlebotomist will take your sample and mix it with the buffer. This will diagnose if any trace of an STD is present and will offer results in less than 10 minutes in some cases depending on the amount of tests carried out.
If any of your tests return positive you’ll be offered a free telephone GP consultation where a GP from our partner medical organisation will be able to answer any questions or queries that you may have about your condition. We’ll also be able to offer you a prescription so that you can get the medical treatment that you require.
It’s often many people’s instinct to get tested straightaway following unprotected sex or a one night stand. Unfortunately this is never a good idea, because STD tests require an amount of time to pass in order to deliver accurate results.
This time in between, is known as the incubation period. It’s the time that the infection needs to reach a detectable level. In the case of most viral testing this period is a little longer because the tests require your body to produce antibodies in order to detect.
You can see the accuracy dates on each of our tests before choosing on the next screen. Testing before these times have passed will result in false negatives, meaning you’ll need to retest again to get treatment or you’ll believe you’re clear and pass the STD to future sexual partners.
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.
