|N/A||1 test kit||£29.99|
This kit tests for gonorrhoea and chlamydia in women which are common sexually transmitted infections.
Gonorrhoea Symptoms: Gonorrhoea does not always produce symptoms and women are less likely to show signs of it than men. If you do experience symptoms they include: a discharge from the vagina that is green or yellow in colour, abdominal pain, discomfort while urinating and vaginal bleeding between periods or after sex.
Chlamydia Symptoms: It’s common for chlamydia to be symptomless. This means you can have it without knowing, making it easily passed on during sexual contact. The symptoms include a discharge from the vagina, pain while urinating, pain during or after sex and bleeding between periods. The symptoms of gonorrhoea and chlamydia are similar so it’s advisable to get tested for both infections.
This test should be taken by women who have had unprotected sex with a new partner or who have symptoms of chlamydia or gonorrhoea.
The test kit guarantees reliability as long as you carry it out as instructed. If the swab or liquid is compromised in any way then you will need to let us know so that we can send you a fresh test. The swab should never be touched by your skin or dropped on the floor.
Take your time to read over the instructions provided with your test. Wash your hands before starting. The swab will be in a sealed packet, you should open it at the end with the stick to avoid touching the swab with your fingers. Carefully remove it from the packaging and get into a comfortable position to gently insert the swab 5cm into your vagina. Rotate the swab for 10-30 seconds, ensuring it touches the vaginal wall. Remove the swab and carefully take the lid off the small tube of liquid, making sure not to spill any. Place the swab into the liquid and break it off at the dented line before screwing the lid back on the tube. If the swab touches anything, or if you spill any of the liquid, then you will need to request a fresh test. Place the samples inside the packaging provided to send on to the laboratory.
When your results are ready, they will be emailed out to you and you’ll also receive a text message if you have provided a valid UK mobile number.
If you get a positive result then you can be prescribed treatment for either infection which is usually one dose of antibiotics for both chlamydia and gonorrhoea. You will also need to inform any recent partners that you have tested positive for a sexually transmitted infection. Your current partner should get treatment too and you should avoid sexual intercourse until you have both been treated to avoid reinfecting each other.
This test kit only tests for infection in the vagina. Other swab tests are available to test for anal and oral gonorrhoea and chlamydia and a urine test is provided for men.
Using condoms is the only way to protect yourself from getting a sexually transmitted infection. You should always use a condom with a new partner until you are in a committed relationship where you are both certain of the other’s sexual health.
The test works by taking samples of your genital fluids to be examined and tested in the laboratory which determines whether or not you have either chlamydia or gonorrhoea.
The test is confidential and the results will not be shared with anyone. These tests are designed to be discreet and will be delivered in nondescript packing.
Gonorrhoea and chlamydia are caught by having sexual intercourse with a partner who is infected. You can also catch it from oral or anal sex.
Our test kits come in plain, unmarked packaging so nobody will be able to tell what’s inside the package.
The test is different for men and women. For women, the test takes a swab sample from the vagina and in men, chlamydia and gonorrhoea tests require a urine sample. For oral and anal samples the test is the same.
