|Extended STI test||1 test kit||N/A||£124.99|
The extended STI test kit allows you to collect samples and post it to the lab discreetly. Your samples will analysed for all of the following infections:
The extended test does not include analysis for the above infections in your throat or the anus. The test will also not detect herpes unless you had an active lesion at the point of collecting the samples. If you are worried about having contracted herpes, we suggest taking a specific herpes STI test using a swab of the area. Our extended STI uses the PCR technology which is highly accurate way examining a tiny sequence of DNA.
Sexually transmitted infections don't always produce symptoms so it's possible to have one without knowing. The majority of women with chlamydia don't experience any symptoms. Chlamydia may produce the following symptoms:
Gonorrhea causes similar symptoms but the discharge will be green or yellow in colour and it may produce a fishy smell. 90% of men will experience symptoms and around 50% of women.
Genital herpes causes small red blisters to appear around the genitals. These will then burst leaving open sores. You may also experience a tingling, itchy sensation and pain or discomfort during urination.
If you think you have contracted any of the above infections recently, we recommend waiting 14 days before getting tested. This is to cover the window period for some of these infections which may go undetected if tested within two weeks of getting infected.
Follow the instructions included with the test kit carefully. Women will be required to take a swab sample from inside the vagina and men will provide a urine sample. Check over the contents of your test kit to make sure everything is intact. Wash your hands before beginning, then fill out your details on the forms included, ready to attach to your completed samples.
To use the vaginal swab, carefully unwrap it from the packaging and squeeze the sides of the pink cap to remove it, ensuring you do not touch the cotton swab. When you are ready, get into a comfortable position and insert the swab into the vagina until the white wings touch the labia. Holding the device with one hand, press the pink plunger inwards until it clicks, as if you are using an applicator to insert a tampon. Next, rotate the plunger five times. It will click each time. Then carefully remove the device, holding on to the bottom of it and pull the pink plunger back out until the white cotton tip disappears into the tube. Place the pink cap back on and then affix the label completed with your details to the tube and place it into the return packaging.
To take the urine test, wash your hands before beginning and carefully unwrap the materials. Squeeze the sides of the collection box to expand it. When you are ready, use this to collect the first part of your urine stream, finishing your pee in the toilet. Carefully pour the urine into the collection tube and screw the cap on securely. Attach your completed label with your details filled in before placing it into the return packaging provided.
The test kit uses the same technology as the NHS so the results are accurate. If the test kit or the samples are compromised then this can interfere with the results. If your kit arrives damaged or you accidentally drop or touch the sterile equipment then let us know so that we can send you a fresh kit free of charge.
You will receive a text message with your results to the mobile number you provided. If you didn't provide a UK mobile number then we will email you to let you know your results.
If your test results come back with a positive result, then we will prescribe you with the relevant treatment to clear up the infection. You will also need to tell your current partner and any recent sexual partners that you have tested positive for an STI as they will also need to get tested and treated.
The tests are different for men and women. Women will need to take a swab sample from inside the vagina and men are required to give a urine sample.
The test is confidential and the results will not be shared with anyone, including your GP unless you have stated that you wish us to do this.
Your test kit will arrive in discreet, plain packaging so nobody will be able to tell what's inside it.
This test only tests for infections in the genital area. It does not test for oral or anal STIs. There are other testing kits available which test for all three which may be more suitable for men who have sex with men.
