Home Testing Kits

Getting tested for an STI is a great idea – and now you can do it without needing to see a doctor or even leaving the house.

It’s free, completely confidential and anyone can do it.

Our at-home kits can test for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. We’ll ask you simple questions online. This just allows us to point you in the right direction.
  2. Order your at-home test kit. Don’t worry – our packaging is discreet so no-one will know what’s inside.
  3. We’ll send you your result via text. We’ll send your samples to the lab, then send you a message with your results.

If you’re ready to order your home STI test, then get started here.

 

 

Why should I get a test?

An STI test checks for all sorts of infections, many of which show no symptoms, so it’s the only way to really know for sure whether you need treatment. If you have any symptoms at all, check our quick symptoms checker.

Infections like chlamydia are more common than you might think, and can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. That’s why it’s recommended you get tested at least every year (or whenever you change sexual partner). Getting tested means you can get treated sooner or just reassure you that everything is already fine.

Best of all it’s quick, free and easy to order an STI testing kit that you can use at home, meaning no awkward chats with your GP, no embarrassment and no fuss.

 

How does it work?

The free home STI testing kit is designed to be discreet, quick and – most of all – easy to use.

  1. After you’ve ordered yours, a small, discreetly packaged box will arrive in the post
  2. Follow the simple instructions to take your samples
  3. Send your samples free post back to the lab
  4. We’ll text or email you to let you know your results within three to five working days

If you’ve not heard anything within a week of sending off your sample, it’s best to contact us so we can check it’s not been lost in the post.

 

What if it comes back positive?

If you test positive for an STI, there’s no need to panic.

The text message or email we’ll send you will have instructions on what to do next. Usually, this will involve coming into the clinic to go through your results and receive your treatment. Our nurses are trained to offer any emotional support and reassurance you might need following your positive result.

Most infections, like chlamydia and gonorrhoea, are easy to treat, usually with antibiotics that can get rid of them quickly and painlessly.
