Once you’ve deposited the sample at our private sexual health clinic in Sheffield it will be sent to our laboratory for testing. It will usually be received by the laboratory the following working day for appointments before 3.30pm. When it’s received by the laboratory it will be tested against the conditions or profile that you choose when you purchase the test.
Results can take anywhere between 4 hours to 3 days to accurately establish, depending on the test that is carried out. Once we have your results we’ll contact you using your preferred contact method of telephone or email. In the event of a positive result you’ll also be offered a GP consultation with out partner medical organisation where a doctor can answer any questions that you may have. They will also be able to provide a prescription so that you can gain the appropriate medication.
No sexual health test is accurate in the days immediately after sex. The infection requires time to incubate inside your body so that the virus or bacteria multiply to a detectable level. The time that a test requires before it can give accurate results depends on the condition that you’re testing for.
Most of the tests available from Your Sexual Health have “accuracy from” dates between 14 – 28 days after exposure. That means that testing before this time will result in a false negative test whereby you believe you are clear, when in actual fact you are not. It’s important that you wait until this time has passed unless you have clear visible symptoms.
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.
Each individual can be affected by sexually transmitted infections differently. Some people show no symptoms at all for certain infections, meaning the only way to effectively know if they have an STI is to be tested. There however some common symptoms that can indicate STDs, including: –
- 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.
