Profile 5

The same test offered as standard at NHS Clinics

The Profile 5 test diagnoses the four most common STIs using a blood and urine sample. It’s the same test that is offered as standard on the NHS, but by booking with Your Sexual Health you can forget about busy clinic waiting rooms or long turnaround times.

Who is this test for?

This test is for anyone who has had unprotected sex with someone new and is yet to get tested. Many of the conditions that the Profile 5 tests for don’t show any symptoms and can therefore go diagnosed for years without regular testing. It should give you peace of mind against the most common STIs.

Turnaround Time

This test takes around 2 working days to gain accurate results once received by the lab. All samples are sent to the laboratory by either Royal Mail First Class Post or by courier.

Incubation Period

This test offers accurate results 28 days following potential exposure. If you believe you’ve come into contact with any of the conditions more recently than 28 days, then you may benefit from our Early Detection tests which offer accurate results within 10 days.

Is this test for me?

This test only identifies the most common STDs meaning it’s useful as a quick check-up following a one night stand, but it won’t give you a comprehensive picture of your sexual health. There are many STDs not tested by the Profile 5 that you can still pass on to future sexual partners. To find out more contact our customer services team.

Clinic test procedure

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 Profile 5 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.

How It Works

We offer a comprehensive range of testing options against all common STIs. You can test in one of our private sexual health clinics or in the comfort of your own home.
