Once you’ve deposited your sample at one of our clinics, it will be taken to our laboratory for testing. We use one of the most prestigious laboratories in the UK, offering the highest level of accuracy available. Your sample will be tested and as soon as we know your results, you’ll be contacted using your preferred method of communications.

In the unfortunate event that one of your results returns positive, we’ll offer you a free telephone consultation with a GP from our partner medical organisation who will be able to answer any questions that you may have about your condition. They will also be able to provide you with a prescription should it be required, otherwise you can use your results to receive medication from your own GP.

Every STD test requires a certain amount of time to pass in order to give accurate results. Some tests require your body to begin its immune defence to an STD, whilst others require the bacteria or virus to multiply to a detectable level. This period of time is sometimes referred to as an incubation period and you must wait for it to pass to gain accurate results.

No test can give you accurate results if you fail to wait the recommended amount of time. Testing before this period of time can result in false negatives where you believe you’re clear when actually you’re carrying an STD. Testing before this amount of time will most likely be a waste of time and money.

The only time when it’s safe to test before the accuracy date, is if you have clear and obvious 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.

Every sexually transmitted infection will affect each patient in a different way and indeed for many they not experience any symptoms at all. For this reason the most effective way to know if you have an STI is to get tested. 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.
