Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are common. The diagnosis rates of STIs remains most common in young heterosexuals aged 15 to 24 years.
If you think you’ve got an STI, go for a check-up as soon as you can. Avoid having sex, including oral sex, without using a condom until you’ve had a check-up, as you can have an STI without knowing it and pass it on to your partner during sex.
Certain infections have mild or no symptoms. However, there are symptoms that may indicate an STI. For example, sores or bumps on the genitals or in the oral or anal area, burning urination, discharge from the penis, unusual vaginal bleeding, pain during sex and strange smelling vaginal discharge.
If you want a fast result, you can have an Instant STI or HIV test. It uses a finger prick of blood or a swab sample and is taken at our clinics with results in just 20 minutes, whilst you wait. Our GP or nurse practitioner will give you the results in person making this an extremely discreet option.

- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C

A discount is available on all bookings with more than one instant test taken during the same appointment. Any second or additional instant tests you add, cost only £50 (excluding HIV, available for an additional £70) when booked with any other test.
