Order Home STI Testing Online

Tests can be used from 14 days after unprotected sexual contact

Our sexual health home testing service is completely confidential and secure. We provide STI test kits for home sample collection, that you post back to our partner laboratory. We will inform you via text message when your result has been uploaded to your secure patient profile, and offer advice and treatment when necessary.

We send you the actual laboratory sample collection kit used in clinics, but designed for home sample collection. Our laboratory uses the latest PCR (polymerase chain reaction) laboratory tests on a single urine sample, the same testing performed on samples collected in clinics. The only difference is that you can provide your sample at a time and place that suits you.

All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can collect your sample for testing within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.

How the service works

Purchase test kit

Decide which test kit you need and purchase online. All orders are sent using discrete packaging with no mention of Anytime Doctor or the parcel content. Upgrade to same day delivery for orders within the M25.

Pee in the pot

Follow the instructions that come with your test kit. All our home test kits are designed for collection of a urine sample. No swabs or needles. Simply pee in the pot provided.

Send off sample

Your test kit includes a pre-paid envelope for returning the sample to the laboratory. Once sealed per the instructions, your sample is safe to post in any UK post box.

Wait for text notification

Once our partner laboratory completes testing on your sample, your results are uploaded to your patient profile. You will receive a text message as soon as your results are available. No need to keep checking your patient profile. If any of your results are positive, you will also receive further advice on how to get treatment.

All of our prices are fully inclusive. When buying your treatment online our price includes the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, dispensing of the medicine itself, free delivery and doctor after-care. There are no hidden extras.

We aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation to ensure that the treatment option you are requesting is appropriate for your needs. Our GMC registered doctors are also able to suggest treatment options for you if you prefer. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your medical consultation and registration is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.

In order to manage some conditions online, we are required to inform your GP about the medicine you have been prescribed. This will be clearly highlighted during your consultation. We will not contact or share this information with your GP without your consent. You are required to provide consent each time you order, so you remain in full control of when we contact your GP on your behalf.

Your Anytime Doctor medical record is confidential and securely stored on our UK data servers. We will never share your details unless you expressly ask us to do so.

Many people don't notice symptoms when they have an STI. For example around 50% of women and 10% of men with gonorrhoea don't have symptoms. Similarly, most women with chlamydia do not notice symptoms. If you have had unprotected sexual contact or if you have any of the common symptoms listed below, get tested.

In women and men:

  • Pain when you pass urine (pee)
  • Itching, burning or tingling around the genitals
  • Blisters, sores, spots or lumps around the genitals or anus
  • Black powder or tiny white dots in your underwear (this could be droppings or eggs from pubic lice)

In women:

  • Yellow or green vaginal discharge
  • Discharge that smells
  • Bleeding between periods or after sex
  • Pain during sex
  • Lower abdominal pain

In men:

  • Discharge from the penis
  • Irritation of the urethra (the tube where urine comes out)

These symptoms don't necessarily mean that you have an STI, but it is worth getting tested. For example, it's possible to get thrush without having sex, but it can cause STI-like symptoms, such as soreness, itching and discharge. Thrush is easily treated and the treatment is available through Anytime Doctor.

Significant proportions of both men and women can have a sexually transmitted infection and feel perfectly well. However, if left untreated some STIs can cause long term complications such as infertility and in women can cause miscarriage and conjunctivitis in babies if present during pregnancy. A sexual health screen is the quickest and most effective way of determining if you need treatment. Many common STIs can be cured with antibiotics.

If you think you might have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or if you have been told by your sexual partner that they have an STI, don't panic - get tested. Many people with STIs don't get symptoms, so it's worth getting tested even if you feel healthy.

Women and men can pass infections to one another. Similarly, women can pass infections to women, and men can pass infections on to men. An STI can be passed from any person to another through unprotected sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex. You can get or pass on an STI whoever you're having sex with. You can't always tell by looking at someone (including yourself) whether they have a sexually transmitted infection, so it is important to get tested if you have had unprotected sexual contact.

To obtain an accurate result for these types of sexually transmitted infections 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 online.

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 need to have an 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.
