Early Detection Blood Test
Screen against common blood bourne STDs just 10 days after exposure with our Early Detection Blood Test.
Our Early Detection Blood Test for STDs allows you to diagnose a range of blood borne STDs with a reduced turnaround time of 10 days. This means you can get accurate results for HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis much sooner than when using our standard Profile Tests. This test can be done with one of our Postal Test Kits, or as a clinic visit.

Who is This Test Best For?
Our Early Detection Blood test is for anyone who wants to test for HIV, Syphilis or Hepatitis, but doesn’t want to wait 28 days to use our standard tests. It’s a good option for anyone who is particularly worried about HIV or Hepatitis, ensuring you can get the answers you need as soon as possible so that you can continue with your life.
Blood Test For STD Turnaround Time
Results for this test will usually be available three days after your sample is received in the lab. The sample is sent to the laboratory using either Royal Mail 1st Class post or by courier. You will receive your blood test results through the online portal.
When Is This Test Accurate From?
This test offers accurate results 10 days after potential exposure to the condition, meaning you don’t have to wait the usual 28 days. If you believe you’ve come into contact with the condition more recently than 10 days, don’t hesitate to contact our team for specialist STD advice.

Should I Take This Test?
If you are particularly concerned about HIV or Hepatitis following unprotected sex with someone to the point where the worry is affecting your life, then this test is for you. It allows you to gain the answers you need after just 10 days. However, it doesn’t offer the full picture of your sexual health that some of our other STD tests do, such as our Premium Profile or the Premium Early Detection.

Clinic Test Procedure
This test is only available as a clinic test or by using our home visits service.

1. Booking Your Blood Test
If you think this test is right for you, press the ‘Book Now’ button, where you’ll be taken to a page where you can select a clinic. Most of our private clinics are accessible via public transport and offer evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.
2. Your Private STD Clinic Appointment
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, and you should be greeted by a friendly practitioner with minimal waiting times.
3. Collecting Your Blood Sample
The Early Detection Blood Test 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. Collecting 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. To ensure you get the most accurate results from your Early Detection test, try to catch the first stream of urine.
5. Receiving Your Blood Test Results
Once you’ve deposited your sample, we’ll take care of the rest. You will be notified of your results as soon as they are ready, either via the online portal or your preferred contact method.
