This kit tests for gonorrhoea and chlamydia which are common sexually transmitted infections. Test kits are available for genital, oral and anal infections.
Anybody who has had unprotected sex with a new partner should get tested. It's recommended to get tested every time you change partners. Sexually transmitted infections do not always cause symptoms so getting tested is the only way to know for sure if you have one or not.
If you think you have been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection you should wait two weeks after having unprotected sex to get tested. The infection may not be detected in the first couple of weeks so this ensures that your results will be accurate.
When your test kit arrives, carefully read the instructions before beginning.
To use the vaginal swab test, carefully unwrap the device after washing your hands. Remove the pink cap, ensuring you do not touch the cotton tip, holding it at the bottom. Get into a comfortable position and insert the device into the vagina until the white wings touch the labia. Push the plunger inwards just like you would with a tampon applicator, until you hear a click. Rotate it five times before gently removing it and pulling the plunger back down until the cotton tip disappears into the tube. Ensure the label is filled in with your details and attached to the tube before putting it into the return packaging.
For men, you will be given a urine test. Wash your hands before beginning and squeeze the sides of the collection box to expand it. When you're ready, pee into the box to gather the first half of your urine stream. After you're finished, carefully pour into the sample tube and screw the lid on. Fasten the label with your completed details before placing it in the return packaging.
For the anal test kit, you will be provided with rectal swabs to collect samples to test for both infections. With clean hands, take the swab out of the sealed packet. Insert it 3-4cm into the anus and slowly twist the swab around 3 times before removing it again. Carefully place it into the tube provided and seal it, placing it into the ziplock bag provided. You’ll need to do this once for each swab. Then place your samples in the return packaging to send your swabs to our laboratory and wait for the results.
For the oral test kit, remove the swab from the packet and run it along the inside of your cheek, turning it over to ensure you collect an adequate sample. Carefully place the swab sample into the container provided, ensuring you do not spill any of the liquid. Once you have done this, break off the end of the stick and screw the lid back onto the container. Place your sample in the return package provided and post it to our 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.
The test is highly accurate, using the same technology as the NHS. Ensure you follow the instructions carefully and make sure the samples do not touch anything.
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.
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.
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.
Chlamydia is easily cured with a course of antibiotics. You will usually be given one large dose to take or your treatment may be spread out over the course of a week depending on the suitability of the medications.
Gonorrhoea is simple to treat and is cured after taking a course of antibiotics.
Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics. You will usually be given four tablets to take all at once. It will take a week for the infection to clear so you should not have sex during this time.
To treat gonorrhoea you will be given a course of antibiotics to clear up the infection. This will either be taken as four tablets together or spread out over seven days. Whichever way you take them, you should avoid sexual contact for seven days or you risk being reinfected or passing the infection on.
Chlamydia will not go away on its own. While you may not have symptoms, the infection will still be present. If it is not treated then you risk infecting others and developing complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease. It can also affect your fertility in the long term.
Gonorrhoea needs to be treated and it will not go away on its own. Aside from causing unpleasant symptoms it can lead to fertility problems if left untreated. You also risk passing on the infection to others.
The test works by taking samples of your genital fluids or from oral or anal swabs. These samples will 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.
Our test kits come in plain, unmarked packaging so nobody will be able to tell what’s inside the package.
