The basic MSM STI test kit tests for the following sexually transmitted infections: HIV, syphilis, chlamydia of the penis, throat and rectum and gonorrhea of the penis, throat and rectum.
Sexually transmitted infections do not always produce symptoms. The only way to know for sure whether or not you have one is to get tested. The symptoms of chlamydia include a discharge from the penis and a painful, burning sensation when urinating. Gonorrhea produces a yellow or green discharge from the penis, pain or burning while urinating or a red rash on the penis. The first stage of syphilis causes a sore to appear on the area of the body that the infection was transmitted. After a few weeks you might experience a non-itchy rash, headaches, tiredness and Swollen lymph glands. If left untreated, syphilis can lead to more serious illnesses further down the line. HIV does not necessarily cause any noticeable symptoms, the main one being a weakened immune system. You can have it for a long time before it causes any health issues so it is important to get tested if you think you may have been exposed.
The test kit contains three types of tests; a urine sample, swab sample and finger prick test to collect a blood sample. To use the urine test, wash your hands before beginning and carefully fill out the enclosed form, affixing the label to the sample vial. Squeeze the sides of the urine collection box to expand it, collecting the first half of your urine stream into the box. After you've finished, carefully pour the urine into the sample vial, ensuring you don't spill any. Screw the lid on tightly and seal it into the package provided.
For the oral swab, wash your hands before beginning and fill out the label with your details, attaching it to the sample vial. Twist the cap on the bottle to pull out the swab, thoroughly swiping it around the tonsils, uvula and posterior wall inside of the mouth before sealing the swab sample back inside the vial. Place it into the return packaging as instructed.
To use the rectal swab, begin by washing your hands and filling out the label provided, attaching it to the sample vial. Unscrew the cap on the bottle and pull out the swab, gently inserting it into the tip of your anus. Twist it carefully as you pull it out and slide the swab sample back into the vial, screwing the cap back on before placing the bottle into the return packaging.
Before taking the blood sample, ensure your hands are clean, warm and dry. Use the antiseptic wipe on middle and ring finger on your less dominant hand. Remove one of the lancets from the bag, twist and remove the blue stick. Place the lancet against the rounded tip of your finger where it will activate and puncture the skin. Wipe away the first drop of blood and massage the finger to collect a blood sample into the tube, filling it up to the line. Cover the punctured area with a plaster, screw the lid onto the tube and upend it carefully 5-10 times. Attach the label to the sample before placing it into the return packaging.
The test provides you with a urine test, oral swab, rectal swab and finger prick test.
