It can be many peoples first instinct to get tested as soon as you’ve had any sexual contact, but this is very rarely an effective step to take as STD tests require a period of time between exposure to offer accurate results. This time in between is known as the incubation period.
The incubation period varies for each test depending on what it is that’s being tested for. Bacteria requires an amount of time to multiply in the body and reach a detectable level, whilst many tests for viruses rely on your body to create antibodies before offering accurate results.
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.

There are however, some common symptoms which may be a sign of an STD 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
