Why get tested?

As many as 1 in 12 people aged 15-24 have Chlamydia, which makes it the most common STI, because it shows no symptoms many people don’t even know they have it. Untreated, Chlamydia can cause serious complications including infertility. However, finding it early means treatment is easy and effective. It can cause serious long-term health problems if left, including infertility.

How does the test work?

Simply order the test online. A testing kit will be posted out to you and arrive within the next few days (in a plain package, so no one will know what it is). All you need to do is take the sample required and post it back. We will let you know the results by text or phone.

How do I do the test?

You don’t need to be examined, you can do the test by yourself at home. Men will need to do a urine sample and women will need to take a vaginal swab. All the kit you’ll need and instructions are included in the box for you.

Is it confidential?

It is completely confidential. You will need to give us your correct contact information so that we can tell you your results.

I think I may have come into contact with Chlamydia, when can I take a test?

It’s best to wait two weeks after suspected contact with Chlamydia before you take a sample. You can either order the test now and then wait to take the sample, or order it after two weeks have passed.

Can you test for HIV and other STIs?
