If you think you may be at risk of an STI, even if you don’t have any symptoms, then don’t wait or leave it to chance – get tested as soon as possible.
It’s quick and easy to get tested - there’s no need for you to come to a clinic as you can order a free STI test kit to be sent to your home.
If you’re aged 15-25 and sexually active, you should get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhoea – the most common STIs - at least once per year and whenever you have a change in sexual partner.
Once the kit arrives, simply follow the instructions on the test kit and post it back in the box provided. You will receive your results via text message.
If you test positive for an STI, we will discuss treatment options with you. This may include a visit to your local pharmacy to pick up a prescription or an appointment at the clinic.
Informing partners that you have an STI
If you test positive for an STI it's important that you tell your recent sexual partners to ensure that they too get tested and prevent the infection from being passed on to other people.
We understand if you don’t want to do this yourself and our team of health advisors can help with this. With your permission, we can contact your previous sexual partners to inform them that they may be at risk of an STI without revealing your identity.
