Who is this test for?
This test is for anyone who has had unprotected sex with someone for the first time recently and you want to check for all STIs. The early detection period of just 14 days means that you can get the treatment you require without having to wait for the standard 28 day incubation period to pass.
Results for this test will usually be available five days after your sample is received in the lab. Samples are sent to the laboratory by either Royal Mail 1st Class or by courier.
When can I take this test?
This test offers accurate results 14 days after potential exposure to the condition, meaning you don’t have to wait the usual 28 days for most STI blood tests. If you believe you’ve come into contact with the condition more recently than 14 days, contact our customer services team who will be able to discuss your options.
Is this test for me?

Clinic test procedure
This test is only available as a clinic test or by using our home visits service. By selecting a clinic test you’ll be assisted by a nurse or doctor in one of our sexual health clinics located across the country.
1. Book your test
To book this test, simply press the ‘Select This Test’ button above. You’ll then be taken to our booking page where you can choose the best clinic for your needs.
2. Arrive at the clinic
Our clinics are all based in a discreet setting and because many of them are general health clinics, there’s no reason why anyone will know that you’re there for a sexual health screening. Just let the receptionist know who you are upon arrival.
3. Your blood sample
The Early Detection 1 test requires a blood and urine sample. The blood sample is collected by a trained nurse or doctor. They’ll take care of you and ensure you’re comfortable, but it will require the use of a needle.
4. Your urine sample
The urine sample will be collected by you in a clinic toilet, with the nurse or doctor providing you with full instructions before you deposit the sample. For the test to be fully accurate you must catch the first stream of urine.
5. Now we’ll take care of your results
Once you’ve deposited your sample, we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll notify you of your results using our online portal as soon as they’re reported by the laboratory.
