What to expect from your visit

Your Sexual Health have a private STI clinic in Crawley offering a range of discreet and confidential tests to people living and working South of London. The clinic provides a wide range of sexual health tests in the most convenient manner. Simply choose the test that you require and pick an appointment time that suits you. Once your appointment is confirmed you’ll just have to arrive at the clinic to deposit your sample. We’ll take care of the rest.

Where is the private STI clinic in Crawley

Our private sexual health clinic in Crawley is situated four miles south of the town centre in the village of Handcross. The clinic has excellent parking available both on site and road side making it excellent for anyone arriving by car. The clinic is ideally situated just off the A23 out of Crawley, providing great accessibility.

What happens after my test?

Once you’ve deposited your sample at our Crawley clinic it will be taken to our laboratory for testing. Once we have your results you’ll be notified via your preferred means of communication of either telephone or email.

In the unfortunate event that your results come back positive, these can be discussed and actioned by your own GP.  We can also recommend an independent private GP service if you prefer who can discuss your circumstances and manage further as required. This service will be free of charge to you. We’re the only online private STD testing provider to offer this level of service.

Crawley Sexual Health Clinic

Some urgent results, and therefore treatments, can be administered on the same day as the test. This is to cover urgent care, but if blood, urine or swab tests are deemed necessary, then you may expect to get your results in between 2-3 weeks.

Private clinics such as Your Sexual Health can speed up this process to 2-3 days. If your tests will be performed over a weekend, this will take 3 days typically. Speed in turnaround time is a great reason to choose our Crawley sexual health clinic over one provided by the NHS.

A positive test may take longer than a negative due to testing for false positives. If you’ve taken one of our same-day tests and it comes back positive, we will run a second test, which will be inspected in one of our laboratories to ensure it’s not a false positive.

A result is rarely lost, and we suggest not taking any extended wait for your results to be indicative of a positive result. In certain cases, such as Herpes Simplex I or II, we may need 5 days to get accurate results, so your results might be delayed by this amount of time to receive an accurate report on your sexual health.

The 5 “Ps” of sexual health are good to remember when considering your or someone you are sexually involved with sexual health. They are used in clinics as an outline of what you, the patient, will be asked about your sexual history to best assess what test you may need.

The 5 “Ps” might not be culturally appropriate for everyone and can be adjusted to your cultural preferences accordingly. They are:

  1. Partners
  2. Sexual Practices
  3. Past History of STDs
  4. Pregnancy Plans
  5. Protection From STDs

Our Crawley Sexual Health Clinic is based on the High Street in Handcross. We can offer you a full sexual health screening where we will test you for all major sexually transmitted diseases.
