Who is this test for?

The Essential Profile is ideal for anyone who wants peace of mind testing following a one night stand, but doesn’t want to wait the full 28 days that many of our other tests require. It requires you to diagnose the three most common STDs from 14 days following exposure.

Turnaround Time

This test has a two day turnaround time for you to receive your results after it is received by the laboratory. All samples are sent to the laboratory using either first class post or by courier.

When can I take this test?

This test offers accurate results from 14 days following potential exposure. If you take this test before this period has passed there is a high probability it will not be accurate. This can result in false negatives, whereby you believe you are clear, but in actual fact you have the condition.

Is this test for me?

This test is for anyone who is concerned about an STD following a one night stand and doesn’t want to wait the full 28 days for the more complete testing packages. It’s recommended that you complete a more comprehensive test on a regular basis in addition to this one to get a full picture of your sexual health. If you are unsure about which test to choose 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 6 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.
