Why STD/STI Testing is Important

Significant proportions of both men and women can have a sexually transmitted infection and feel perfectly well. However, if left untreated STDs can cause long term complications such as infertility, miscarriage and conjunctivitis in babies if present during pregnancy. A health screen is the quickest and most effective way of determining your clean bill of health.

Time is also a key factor, taking hours off work to go through the soul-destroying experience of waiting in line at a drop-in sexual health clinic is just not an option. Direct and discreet, this is a service that can put your mind at rest, fast -

Private doctors are expensive, they charge you £100 for a 15 minute consultation even if you have no symptoms. I don't want to pay for a doctor to tell me to pee in a bottle which then goes straight to a laboratory -

Why we don't test for HIV, Syphilis, Hep B or Hep C

To obtain an accurate result for these types of STD you need to have a blood test. There is no urine test which can test for HIV, Syphilis, Hep B or Hep C. There is a saliva test available, but it does not offer the same accuracy as a blood test. We also feel that due to the seriousness of these illnesses should you test positive you will need to be in the company of a trained doctor and not receive your results remotely.

The good news is that within the UK the prevalence of these diseases is very low in comparison to Chlamydia or Herpes, which we do test for and treat. We strongly suggest that if you do wish to have a HIV test you visit your doctor or a GUM clinic. Similarly if you have been to Africa and had unprotected sex we recommend you book an appointment at a sexual health clinic for a face-to-face consultation.
