Sexual Health Tests

Why get tested?

If you are sexually active it is important to get regular testing, regardless of having any symptoms. Often, a virus or infection may not show noticeable symptoms, so having regular testing can alert you to any issues. Sexually transmitted diseases (STIs) require prompt treatment to prevent spreading infections to others. Most of the time, STIs won't cause any lasting damage to your overall health but they do need to be treated early to ensure you stay healthy.

When should I be tested?

If you've noticed anything new or unfamiliar, you may have symptoms of an STI. At this time you should book a consultation to speak with our qualified doctors.

After they have determined what test is required, you'll be able to order it instantly and have it delivered to your door. If the test shows a positive result, then you and your doctor can work to find the best treatment option.

If you're sexually active you should get tested at least once a year. You should also get tested whenever you change partners.

“There are a number of different tests that can be used to assess sexual health. These tests can be used to diagnose and treat sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as well as to identify other conditions that may impact sexual health. STI tests can be used to detect the presence of bacteria, viruses, or other organisms that can cause STIs. These tests can be performed using a variety of methods, including swabs, blood tests, and urine tests!”
