What should I test for?

STIs (sexually transmitted infections) can be passed from one person to another through sexual contact - including oral, anal and vaginal sex. They're sometimes called STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).

Some people are more at risk of STIs than others. So they may want to test more often or for specific infections. Find out more below.

Chlamydia

£29

Chlamydia is a common bacterial infection. It's easy to treat with antibiotic tablets.

If you're having sex, you should get tested. We recommend doing a test every year, or every time you have a new partner.

Symptoms can include a change in vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or irregular periods. But most people do not have any noticeable symptoms.

Test 2 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results.

Gonorrhoea

£29

Gonorrhoea is a common bacterial infection. It needs an antibiotic injection to treat.

If you're having sex, you should get tested. We recommend doing a test every year, or every time you have a new partner.

Symptoms might include changes in vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or irregular periods. Most people do not have any noticeable symptoms.

Test 2 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results.

HIV

£21

HIV is a viral infection that attacks the body's immune system. There’s no cure, but antiretroviral treatment can make the virus undetectable and untransmissible.

You should get tested if you've had unprotected sex, particularly if you've changed partners, are a man who has sex with men, or have multiple partners.

At first, symptoms might feel like a flu-like illness for a few weeks after infection. After this, people usually have no symptoms for several years. Over time the immune system becomes less able to fight off common infections.

For lab blood sample tests wait 7 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results. For the Insti HIV test, wait 12 weeks.

Syphilis

£27

Syphilis is a bacterial infection that has 3 stages. It can be treated with antibiotics.

You should get tested if you’ve had unprotected sex, particularly if you are a man who has sex with men or you have multiple partners.

Symptoms depend on which stage the infection is at. In the first stage, it can cause a painless ulcer and swollen lymph nodes.

Test 12 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results.

Hepatitis B

£29

A virus that can damage the liver. A free vaccine is available for those most at risk of infection.

We recommend this test if:

  • you’re a man who has sex with men

  • you’ve ever injected recreational drugs

  • you’re living with HIV

  • you get paid for sex or you pay for sex

  • you were born in an area with a high rate of hepatitis B, or you have sex with someone born in these areas.

Symptoms usually show in the first 6 months of being infected. They can include flu-like symptoms, sickness and diarrhoea.

Test 12 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results.

Hepatitis C

£29

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect and damage the liver. It can be treated with antiviral medication.

We recommend this test if you’ve ever injected recreational drugs, you’ve had sex that involves groups, unprotected anal sex or fisting, or you, or your partner, is living with HIV.

Symptoms usually show in the first 6 months of being infected. They can include flu-like symptoms, sickness and diarrhoea.

Test 12 weeks after unprotected sex for the most accurate results.

Other common STIs

We don't offer tests for these STIs so you should visit your GP or Find a local clinic if you're worried you have symptoms.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is caused by a tiny parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. It can be easily treated with tablets.

Not everyone experiences symptoms, but they can include:

  • soreness and itching around the vagina

  • a change in vaginal discharge

Genital herpes

Genital herpes is a common infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). Once infected, the virus stays in your body. It may cause outbreaks which usually heal without treatment.

Herpes can cause

  • flu-like symptoms like tiredness, headaches and fever

  • stinging, tingling or itching around your genitals or bottom

  • small, fluid-filled blisters anywhere around the genitals

The majority of people have this virus but do not know they have it because they do not have any symptoms.

Genital warts

Warts are an infection caused by a human papilloma virus (HPV). Treatment can remove visible warts.

The main symptom is small, fleshy growths, bumps or skin changes that can apperar anywhere around your genital, anal or throat area. They might be inside the vagina or anus, so you might not notice straight away.

Genital warts are usually painless. But sometimes they will itch and cause inflammation or bleeding.

You can read more about other STIs that we don't currently offer tests for in our help centre.

About STI testing

How home STI testing works

Our tests check for some of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs). We use similar tests that you’d get in a clinic, but we design our kits for you to use at home.

Our STI test kits include everything you need to take a sample of blood or bodily fluids for testing in our lab. Or for testing at home if you choose the Insti HIV test. This could include swabs for your mouth, vagina or anus, a urine tube, or a lancet to make a small cut on your finger. We’ll include an instruction card, a sample tube and a Freepost return box.

We asked people who’ve used our tests to help improve our instructions. Most people find the blood test easier after watching our short ‘top tips’ video. If you need help with any of your tests, ask us at any time.

How long does it take for an STI to show up on a test?

It can take time for STIs to show up in tests. This is called a ‘window period.’

If you’ve been at risk of an infection, or you’re worried that you may have come into contact with an STI, check the window period to see when a test will be most accurate. If you don't want to wait, test now and test again after the window period. Testing too early can mean the infection won't show up and your results will not be accurate.

Protecting yourself from STIs

STIs are bacteria or viruses passed from person to person through sexual contact. This can be unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex. 

Condoms are the best way to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections. Male and female condoms protect you from most STIs. Regular testing can help reduce the spread of STIs. If you don’t know that you have an infection, you could be passing it on to others without realising.

Bacterial infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are treated with antibiotics.

HIV, herpes and hepatitis B and C are caused by viruses. They are treated with anti-viral medications. 

If your test shows that you may have an infection, we’ll help you get the right treatment.

How often should I test for STIs?

We recommend testing for STIs:

  • every 3 months if you have sex with different partners

  • in 1 year if you're in a monogamous relationship

You do not need to get tested after every partner, but it's a good idea to get tested at the start of a new relationship.

Our simple home STI test kits are highly accurate when you:

  • wait the recommended window period before you test

  • follow the kit instructions carefully

  • complete additional tests in a clinic setting, if recommended by our clinicians.

Your samples are sent to our partner laboratory to be processed by specialist technicians. We use similar tests that are used by many NHS clinics.

If you are experiencing any STI symptoms, you should visit your local sexual health clinic for further testing and examination.

Most STIs cause no symptoms at all. This is why it's important to test regularly.

STI symptoms vary from itchiness, soreness, rashes or redness, to pain when passing urine, discharge from the penis or vagina, and lumps or sores on the genitals.

The only way to know you have an infection is to have an STI test.

Most people are sent their results by text. In some cases, one of our clinicians will call you to talk about your results and treatment. We’ll always text you first to agree on a good time to speak.

If you have an infection, we can help you get treatment and further support.

If your test result is positive for chlamydia, we can offer treatment by post. If you have complicated symptoms that require examination or further testing, we will help you find a clinic for treatment.
