They will take your sample and send it to our lab. It’s that simple.

Where is the Lincoln STD clinic?

Our private sexual health clinic in Lincoln is on Union Road, just a short walk from central Lincoln. It’s just a short 10 minute drive to the clinic via Yarbrough Crescent from the city centre. Due to the clinic’s location on the A57, it’s also easily accessible from other areas of Lincolnshire, including Newark via the A46 or Scunthorpe via the A15. The clinic has on site car parking.

What happens once I’ve deposited my sample?

Once your sample is received by our lab we will begin testing it. As soon as we have your results you’ll be notified via your preferred contact method of telephone or secure 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.

Lincoln Sexual Health Clinic FAQs

Sexual Health Clinics, sometimes known as family planning clinics or GUM clinics, offer you sexual health advice or provide Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) tests which are interchangeably known as Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD).

You would want to consult a sexual health clinic if you have had unprotected sexual contact, and want to be tested for sexually transmitted infections. Depending on your urgency for results, you may want to consider a private practice to cut down on the waiting time. This shorter period of waiting time is offered by Your Sexual Health, a private Sexual Health Clinic available across the UK or by post, also known as home testing.

Sexual Health Clinics only ask necessary questions relating to your recent sexual practices. You should feel free to share any and all information with the person who administers the test, as this information may be relevant to the diagnosis of a suspected sexually transmitted disease.

We ask a minimum of 2 questions when assessing what type of test you may need, but we may require further information during the testing procedure as it may help identify any diagnosis we may make.

Our initial questions may take the form of;

  • What is your reason for getting tested?
  • What are your symptoms?
  • When was the last time you were sexually active?

These questions are asked as standard and can be omitted if they are deemed to be culturally or religiously insensitive at the clients' request.

You can enjoy a normal day before having a sexual health check, just treat it as a normal doctor's appointment. If a urine sample is needed, we recommend not weeing 2 hours before your sample is due.

It is also considered best practice to not consume alcohol for up to 24 hours before a blood, saliva or urine sample is due.
