Frequently Asked Questions

The symptoms for each sexually transmitted infection vary and many don’t have any symptoms at all at first but without treatment they can cause a range of problems down the line. You can find out more specific information about STDs on our STD Information page. Some typical symptoms are: –

  • Unusual discharge from the penis, vagina or anus
  • Pain during sex or urination
  • Sores, blisters, ulcers, warts or rashes in the genital area
  • Itchiness or irritation in the genital area
  • Abnormal or unusual vaginal bleeding, especially after having sex
  • Pain in the scrotum or testicles
  • Lumps and bumps on the genitals.
  • Swelling of the glands in your groin

Remember you may have no symptoms at all.

STIs are very common and rates in the UK continue to rise for a number of reasons, most notably due to government budget cuts and closures to many public health services in the UK.

If you have unprotected sex with someone without using a condom, then you’re at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection. Due to the fact that many STIs show no symptoms, it’s quite common for people to pass on a sexually transmitted infection without knowing they have one themselves.

For this reason it’s important to get tested regularly and always use a condom if you’re having sex with someone in a new relationship.

We have clinics located across the UK, including most major cities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This means that you shouldn’t have to travel too far for your appointment. You can find your nearest clinic location by visiting our Clinic Locator page.

If you don’t have clinics located near to you, you can still take one of our tests using our Home STD Testing service. We’ll post a sample kit to your door for you to deposit the sample at home before posting it to our laboratory. We also offer a Home Visits service where we send a mobile phlebotomist to your door.
