Testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

If you do not have symptoms

If you do not have any symptoms and want a routine STI screen please go online and order a free, discreet home test kit which will be delivered to your door. This is an easy and convenient way to test for a range of STIs. 

  • Register your details and answer a few questions about what type of sex you are having
  • Order your test kit – it will be sent to you quickly and discreetly (there will be no identifying marks or logos on the packaging)
  • Take your samples and place it all back in the box, seal it up and pop it in your nearest post box as soon as you can. The results will be sent to you in via the option you chose when registering, ie text message or email

Ordering your test

If you receive a positive result, do not panic – the company who process the home testing kits will advise you on what to do next, or you can call your nearest clinic for advice.
