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.

Maidstone Sexual Health Clinic FAQs

Getting tested at home is easy and won’t take more than 10 minutes of your time. Simply apply for a Home STD Test and we will send out a test suitable for the STDs you wish to test for. Some tests can be turned around in 2 days, whilst others can take 5 days due to some samples requiring a slightly longer testing period.

Most Postal Tests require either a blood prick sample using a lancet or a simple collection of urine.

With the correct treatment, yes chlamydia does go away. If you suspect that you or a person you have had sexual contact with has chlamydia, then you should get tested and follow the advice of a medical professional.

Commonly prescribed antibiotics for chlamydia are:

  • Doxycycline
  • Azithromycin

Positive chlamydia results for one partner, but not the other could be due to 3 reasons:

  • Your result is a false positive
  • Their result is a false negative
  • The virus has not yet been transmitted between each partner

It is not necessarily the case that a positive result for one partner indicates infidelity in the relationship. It has been noted that false negative results are more common than false positives to a magnitude of around 10 to 1.
