Now you can buy a variety of STI test kits through our online pharmacy platform. Some of these enable you to provide a urine or blood sample at home, which you can then send back to our partner pathology lab for screening. We work with The Doctors Laboratory to provide a fast and confidential testing service; and in the event you receive a positive result, our doctor will be able to provide advice on treatment and partner notification.
The SELFCheck test for female chlamydia doesn’t go to the lab for analysis, and gives you a result at home. The BioSURE HIV test also provides a result at home in 15 minutes. When you take these tests, our doctors will not know your result, so will not contact you in the event of a positive result. You’ll need to seek treatment yourself if your result is positive in either case.
What lab tests for STIs are there?
We currently offer:
- a gonorrhoea test (urine sample)
- a chlamydia testing (urine sample)
- a 2-in-1 combined test for gonorrhoea and chlamydia (urine sample)
- a 7-in-1 combined test for gonorrhoea, chlamydia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasma, trichomonas vaginalis, gardnerella vaginalis and herpes (urine sample)
- a HIV test (blood sample)
- and a 4-in-1 combined test for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C (blood sample)
With each test kit, you’ll receive everything you need to collect your sample, along with easy-to-follow instructions on how to do so. For the urine sample, a small and discreet container is given, and returned to the lab in secure prepaid packaging. The blood test comes with a finger lancet, and again a small container is provided for the sample itself, along with a prepaid envelope.
Once the lab has received your sample, they will usually be able to turn your test around in:
- two days for those involving a urine sample
- four hours for those involving a blood sample
You’ll then be able to view your result by logging in to your secure patient area on Treated.com. We’ll contact you via your preferred method (SMS text message or email) to let you know when your result is ready.
In the event that your result is positive, our doctor will advise you on treatment, and provide any assistance you might require with partner notification.
If you take an HIV test and get a positive result, our doctor will contact you via telephone to provide guidance support.
The women-only chlamydia test kit
Unlike the tests listed above, the female chlamydia test from SELFCheck doesn’t need to be analysed in a lab. The vaginal swab test provides a result at home, after 15 minutes of completing the sample.
If you use this test, you won’t get the same follow up for a positive result from our doctor, as we won’t be notified of the result. However, you can use a positive result from this test to order chlamydia treatment through our pharmacy service.
The home test kit for HIV
The BioSURE HIV test doesn’t need to go to a lab either, and gives you a result at home in 15 minutes.
Again, if your result is positive, our doctors won’t know as they won’t receive a copy of the result; so if you take the home test for HIV and your result is positive, you should go to a sexual health clinic or see a doctor as soon as possible.
STIs: why get tested?
In England, there are around 400,000 new cases of STIs reported each year. Of these, chlamydia is the most common, accounting for around 40-50% of all new cases reported.
There are several ways STIs can be spread from one person to another, including through unprotected vaginal, oral and anal sex, or through sharing sex toys.
When left untreated, STIs can lead to more serious health issues. In the case of chlamydia or gonorrhoea, infertility is one possible complication; whereas other conditions such as HIV, syphilis or hepatitis C can cause life-threatening illness.
Bacterial STIs such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis can be effectively treated with antibiotic medicine; however HIV cannot currently be cured, and will require long-term treatment.
It’s typical for many STIs not to cause noticeable symptoms, and therefore be easy to miss. Often, the only way to know for sure whether you have an STI is to get tested.
Take our short consultation to order your STI test kit online. Our doctor will ask you a few questions just to make sure the test you are ordering is suitable. We’ll then ship your test to your chosen address via tracked next-day delivery.
There are several different types of test available for STIs. Some require a urine sample, and others a blood sample. Sometimes when you go for testing in person at a GUM clinic, you may also be asked to provide a swab.
Currently on our site, we offer urine sample tests for:
- chlamydia and gonorrhoea (as a 2-in-1 combined test)
- and a 7-in-1 test for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasma, gardnerella vaginalis, trichomonas vaginalis (TV) and herpes simplex (I and II).
We offer blood sample tests for:
- and for HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B and C (as a combined 4-in-1 test).
We also have a swab test available, which tests for chlamydia in women.
When you order your test kit from our UK pharmacy, you’ll receive instructions on how to collect your sample.
If you’ve ordered a lab test, you’ll also be given a prepaid addressed envelope so you can quickly and easily send your sample to our pathology partners, The Doctors Laboratory, for analysis.
The SELFCheck female chlamydia test and the BioSURE HIV self test don’t need to go to the lab. Both give you a result at home in 15 minutes.
How do they work?
The urine tests for bacterial STIs (chlamydia, gonorrhoea, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasma, gardnerella vaginalis and trichomonas vaginalis) detect the presence of the bacteria responsible for each of these infections.
The vaginal swab test for chlamydia mixes the sample with antibodies, again to identify the C. Trachomatis bacteria.
The blood test for HIV works slightly differently; this instead detects antibodies the body produces in response to the virus.
How long will it take to get my result?
It depends on the test you have.
The typical turnaround time for urine test results upon receipt at the lab is two days.
For blood tests, it’s four hours.
If you’re using the SELFCheck test for female chlamydia, or the BioSURE HIV test, you’ll get your result after around 15 minutes of performing the test.
Where can I find my result?
When you have taken and sent back a lab test and your result is ready, we’ll send you a text or email (whichever method you have instructed us to use) to let you know.
You’ll then be able to view your result by logging into your secure patient area.
Our doctor will provide further advice on treatment if your test result is positive.
If you have taken the HIV lab test (not the BioSURE test) and received a positive result, our doctor will call you to advise you on what to do next.
The SELFCheck kit for female chlamydia provides a result on the test cassette itself (so you won’t need to login to find it), as does the BioSURE HIV test. You'll need to seek further advice from a doctor if your result is positive.
What’s the difference between the tests?
There are six different STI test kits available to buy from our pharmacy.
The following tests require you to provide a urine sample:
- combined gonorrhoea and chlamydia
- and the 7-in-1 STI test
and the following tests require you to provide a blood sample:
- and the combined 4-in-1 test for HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B and C
We also offer a swab test for women screening for chlamydia, and a home test kit for HIV which requires a finger prick blood sample.
The urine tests come with a container in which to provide your sample.
The blood tests come with a small lancet device, and again a container for your sample.
Detailed, simple-to-follow instructions and a prepaid envelope are provided with both.
The swab test for chlamydia and the home test for HIV don’t require lab analysis, so you’ll get your result at home in a few minutes. It comes with a set of instructions and guidance on what to do if your result is positive.
What’s the turnaround time?
For urine tests, two days upon receipt at the lab.
For blood tests, four hours from receipt at the lab.
In most cases, provided you do not delay sending back your sample, you should be able to get your result within one week or less.
The SELFCheck and BioSURE kits will display your result in 15 minutes.
Should I take the test?
If you think you’ve been exposed to an STI, or if one of your partners has advised you that they have tested positive, you should get tested as soon as possible.
Even if, to the best of your knowledge, you haven’t been exposed to an STI, it’s a good idea to regularly get tested anyway if you’re sexually active and not in a monogamous relationship.
What happens if I’m positive?
If you have taken a lab test, our doctor will be able to provide advice on getting the treatment you need. They will also provide any additional support you need for partner notification.
If you take our lab test for HIV and get a positive result, our doctor will contact you by telephone to notify and provide support.
However if you take the BioSURE test for HIV and your result is positive, our doctor won’t be notified; so you’ll need to arrange to see a doctor yourself.
When you use the SELFCheck test, the instructions will contain information on what you should do after you get your result.
