Can a Pregnancy Test detect an STI?

No, a pregnancy test does not test for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Pregnancy tests check for the hormone (HCG) that is present in early pregnancy.

STI tests check for the bacteria or viruses that cause STIs, for example, HIV or chlamydia.

You can buy a pregnancy test from most pharmacies.

You can get a STI test from your local sexual health clinic or online STI testing service.
