About the STI check

Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea

Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis and Gonorrhoea by Neisseria gonorrhoeae. While they don’t necessarily cause symptoms or signs of the infection, they can both lead to serious health issues if left untreated.

Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are passed from person to person through sexual contact. This includes any contact with infected semen/ejaculate/pre-ejaculate/discharge in the throat, vagina or rectum. These infections are commonly spread through unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex, or sharing sex toys. Moreover, because of the lack of symptoms in some people, chlamydia and gonorrhoea are very easily passed on to sexual partners without realising it.

Key information

Required samplesA urine sample.
The test contains full instructions on how to take these samples.
Who is this test for?

• You do NOT have any symptoms

• You are a woman who has sex with men and/or women

If you have symptoms, we recommend attending your local sexual health clinic.

When should I NOT take this test?

• You think you have been exposed to HIV within the last 72 hours

• You have any symptoms

• You have tested positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea in the last 6 weeks

If you think you have been exposed to HIV within the last 72 hours, you should seek URGENT medical advice from your local sexual health clinic, GP or Accident & Emergency, as HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) may be recommended.

If you have symptoms, you should NOT use this service. You require a face to face assessment at your local sexual health clinic or GP.

If you have recently tested positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea, you should contact the service that did this test for further advice

When do I need to take the test?

Tests done too early may not be accurate.

The ‘window period’ (time period between potential exposure to an STI eg. sex without a condom, and the point when the test will give you an accurate result) for  Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea is  2 weeks.

However, if you think you might have an STI, you can test immediately and repeat the test after the window period (you will need to purchase 2 test kits for this).

How do I access my test result?

If your test result is ‘negative’ we'll upload the results into your Patient Record, which you can access by logging in through our website.

If you test positive for Chlamydia we will offer you free antibiotic treatment, provided that it is clinically appropriate. 

If you test positive for Gonorrhoea then we will advise you to attend your local sexual health clinic for further advice and treatment.

How long will I have to wait for the result?Test results are normally ready within 3 working days of your sample arriving at our partner laboratory. You will receive a text and an email when your result is ready.
ConfidentialityYour test results are completely confidential. We will not inform your GP or anyone else of your result, or that you have used our service, unless you specifically ask us to. However, please note that if you test positive for these STIs, we are legally bound to notify details to the Medical Officer of Health for the County in which you live.
