Sexual Health Clinic Chelmsford FAQs

Costs for STD tests range from free to staggered pricing depending on your needs. Using chlamydia as an example, you can get tested quickly, and easily using fully confidential practices with Your Sexual Health, a clinic based on Cromar Way in Chelmsford.

Our cheapest test is £135 and we can provide you with results in as little as 2 days. The NHS offers a free service, however, it can take as many as 3 weeks to get your results.

Different STIs take different times to show symptoms, sometimes you can contract an STI and show no clear symptoms at all. Testing too early into the STI’s infection can yield false negative results. For reference, below is a general guide between the time from when you first get infected to the time it would be best to get tested:

  • Chlamydia/Gonorrhoea - 14 days
  • Genital Herpes - 14 days
  • HIV - 28 days
  • Hepatitis B and C - 28 days
  • Syphilis - 28 to 84 days

With this in mind, you should stay vigilant with your sexual health and be clear and honest with your sexual partners.

Only questions about your sexual health and history will be asked at your sexual health screening. This may include:

  • How many sexual partners do you have?
  • What contraception do you use (if any)?
  • Do you have any symptoms?

We are only interested in your sexual health and testing for any sexually transmitted diseases you may have. We are only gathering information to provide an informed assessment of your sexual health, however, if you find some of these questions culturally or religiously inappropriate, you can decline an answer. It should be considered best practice to answer all questions asked by our trained medical professionals.
