You have an amazing, thoughtful user experience! I would have been too busy to take this test 'in real life' so it was great to have something I could do quickly and on my own schedule.

What's in the kit?

To test at home for gonorrhoea and chlamydia, you’ll take a swab from your mouth, anus or vagina. Or you can send a urine sample. You’ll find an instruction card in your kit. Read the instructions carefully so your tests are accurate.

To test for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV and syphilis, we use a blood sample from a finger prick. You’ll find an instruction card in your kit.

Box with instructions leaflet, swabs and blood lancets

Vaginal swab

Use this to test for genital gonorrhoea and chlamydia. Gently wipe the soft cotton tip of the swab around the walls of your vagina.

Rectal swab

Use this to test for gonorrhoea and chlamydia in your bottom (anus). Gently insert the soft cotton tip of the swab into your anus and rotate it for about 10 seconds. Take care not to snap the swab.

Sterile wipes and plasters

Before you start your HIV and syphilis test, use the wipes to clean your fingertip. You might need a small plaster for your fingertip.

Small lancets

Use the lancet to make a tiny cut in your fingertip. We send some spares in case you need to try more than once.

Blood sample tube

Drop a small amount of blood into the tube. Make sure to fill it to the line. You can use more than one finger if you need to.

Sample tubes and return box

It’s easy to return your samples safely. Put each sample in its protective tube and use the Freepost box to send your samples to our lab.

How to collect a blood sample

Many people find it easier and quicker to collect their blood sample after watching this short video.

Top tips

  • Make sure your hands are warm by having a bath or shower, or exercise to warm up

  • Drink lots of water before you test

  • Push the lancet firmly into the side of your finger. Avoid the more sensitive middle part of your finger tip.

  • Stand up or keep your arm as straight as possible

  • Massage from your palm to your fingertip to help the blood flow

    Multiple blood tests

    You can test for more than one infection with just one blood sample.

When to test

When to test for gonorrhoea

It can take up to 2 weeks (14 days) after sexual contact for a gonorrhoea infection to show up in a test. If you test before this, your test will not be accurate.

Most people have no symptoms, so you may not know that you have an infection. We recommend testing when you have a new sexual partner. If you change partners regularly, test every 3 months (12 weeks). And if you do not change partners regularly, test once a year.

When to test for chlamydia

It can take 1 to 2 weeks for a chlamydia infection to show up in tests. Wait at least 2 weeks to take a test after you’ve had unprotected sex with a new partner. Most people have no symptoms, so you may not know that you have an infection. 

We recommend testing every year or every time you have a new partner, particularly if you're under 25.

When to test for HIV

The window period for HIV can be up to 7 weeks (45 days). This means the infection may not show up in antibody tests until 7 weeks after you’ve been at risk. If you’re not sure when you might have been exposed, test now and do a second test in 7 weeks.

People can carry HIV without showing symptoms or knowing that they have it. So routine testing is important. If you have sex without condoms, particularly if you've changed partners, are a man who has sex with men, or have multiple partners, you should get tested for HIV every 3 months.

When to test for syphilis

It can take up to 12 weeks (84 days) for syphilis infection to show up in a test. If you're not sure when you might have been exposed, do a test now, and another test after the 12 week window period.

Syphilis is not as common as other STIs but there are a growing number of cases in the UK. Get tested if you’ve had unprotected sex, particularly if you are a man who has sex with men or you have multiple partners, as you are likely to be at higher risk of infection.

If you've had syphilis before, make sure you tell us about it when you order. We'll make sure you get the right kind of test.

Symptoms

Symptoms of HIV

HIV can cause flu-like symptoms a few weeks after infection. After this, people living with HIV may live symptom free for years. As HIV develops, the immune system becomes weaker. This can become serious, making it hard to fight common infections. 

People living with HIV are more likely to develop some cancers. In its final stage, HIV infection will develop into AIDS. Common infections could become fatal, as the body is too weak to fight them off.

Symptoms of syphilis

Many people will not notice any symptoms. But without treatment, syphilis can have life threatening consequences.

The infection has 3 stages - primary, secondary and late stage. Each stage has different symptoms.

Primary syphilis causes an ulcer and swelling of lymph glands. The ulcer is very infectious but it usually does not hurt. It will eventually disappear without needing treatment. Some people will not notice it.

Secondary syphilis can cause a skin rash, often on the trunk of your body, palms of your hands or soles of your feet. And swelling of lymph glands.

Late syphilis can happen from 7 to 30 years after getting the infection. It can affect bones, skin, the heart or the central nervous system. This stage can be Iife threatening.

Treatment

Getting treatment for gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is treated with an antibiotic injection. If you get a positive result, we’ll help you get treatment from your nearest clinic. 

You should tell all of your sexual partners from the last 6 months. They could have gonorrhoea without knowing it. If you test positive, we’ll send you a link to our anonymous partner notification service. We make it easier to tell your sexual partners so they can get tested and treated.

Getting treatment for chlamydia

Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotic tablets. If you get a positive result from your Fettle test, we’ll offer you treatment by post. Our clinicians will ask you a few questions to make sure it's safe to prescribe online. 

If you’d prefer to visit a clinic, we’ll help you find the nearest one. Treatment is effective after 7 days. We recommend waiting 6 weeks after you've finished the treatment before you test again. You and your partner should both get treated and avoid having sex until you’ve completed treatment.

Treatment for HIV

Modern treatment options mean most people living with HIV have a long and healthy life. Most treatments involve antiviral medications. These don’t cure HIV but can reduce the level of virus in your blood to ‘undetectable’ levels.

This means you can’t pass on HIV to other people. HIV treatment works best when it's started straight after diagnosis.

Getting treatment for syphilis

Syphilis is treated by antibiotic injections or tablets. If your test shows you might have a syphilis infection, one of our clinicians will call you to talk through the next steps and help you find a clinic. You'll need to have a blood test to confirm the infection and what stage it's at.

If you have syphilis or any STI, you should tell your sexual partners and anyone you’ve had sex with in the last 6 months. It’s important they get tested and treated as they could have the infection without knowing it.
