Which test is best for me- (what if...)?

I cannot remember what happened?
When you are unsure about your exposure activity, it is best to be safe and take an Advanced Screen to cover as many risks as possible.

I had intercourse with a new person
Even if you only slept with a person once (a 1 night stand); you are still at risk of contracting an infection. Take a Standard Screen before any further sexual activity. If you already have a regular partner and want more rapid results, take an Early Detection Screen or Instant Testing for faster results.

I had intercourse with a sex worker or prostitute
You should choose an Advanced Screen due to the higher risk from a sex worker having a large number of unknown clients and the ease of infections spreading quickly.

I have given or received Oral Sex
You can still catch STI/STD’s from using your mouth and hands by performing oral sex. A Common Screen will cover common infections that can be transmitted from genitals.

We touched but did not have Oral Sex or Intercourse
There are some common STI’s that can be passed on through body contact alone and a Common Screen will test for infections transmitted in gential fluids from touching a partner intimately (such as ‘fingering’). If you feel there was any blood contact or cuts/sores when you touched, it is best to have a Standard Screen.

I have given or received Anal Sex
There are higher risks from sexual activity with the anus and rectum. A Standard Screen will cover common risks or an Early Detection Screen if you want results sooner.

I have a sore, lump or lesion in my genital area
If you have any visible symptoms, whether a wart, sore, skin lesion or lump/bump, you should have this checked. You can either book a GP appointment for a physical examination or a Symptomatic Genital Lesion Screen, especially designed for common STI’s that cause physical symptoms such as the HPV virus which can cause genital warts.


Get your symptoms seen by a GP

If you’re experiencing physical symptoms of an STI or STD, book in for a check-up with our private GP’s – they’ll talk through any concerns you may have, provide an examination, complete testing and get your results back to you quickly and prescribe treatment where necessary. We also have some medications onsite to save a journey to the pharmacy.


What are the early symptoms of an infection?

In many cases a patient can have no visible or physical symptoms of an STI or STD but can still carry an infection or disease. It is important to have regular testing when you are exposed to a risk of infection or disease.


How long should I wait before testing?

The period of time (number of days) that you must wait between any exposure incident and getting tested is different for each type of infection. For example, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea can typically be detected after two weeks, but HIV can be tested from 10 days post exposure.


STD or STI Lab Test Instant Test
Chlamydia 14 days 14 days
Gonorrhoea 7 days 14 days
HIV (early detection) 10 days 26 days
Hepatitis B (early detection) 10 days 28 days
Hepatitis C (early detection) 10 days 12 days
Syphilis 14 days 14 days

We offer STI/STD testing with a free courier collection & delivery to the laboratory for rapid turnaround times – because we know nobody likes the agonising wait for important results. Need results right now? Try the cutting-edge instant tests with results available within just 20 minutes.


Are my results confidential?

Yes. Your results are 100% completely confidential. Your booking details and results will NOT be shared with any third parties or your NHS GP. Pall Mall Medical is an independant heathcare clinic and therefore you have complete privacy from the NHS and your medical records.


How will I receive my results?

You can specify to the practitioner how you receive your results, which is normally by Call, Text Message, Email or by collection in person at the clinic.


What if my test result is positive?

Finding out you have a STD or STI can be difficult to take in and deal with – our sensitive and highly trained GPs can help you through this daunting process and provide you with a treatment plan. If prescription medication is required, this can be prescribed straight away; maintaining your privacy from the NHS and meaning you can remain discreet whilst completing any treatment.

We also have expert Genito-Urinary Medicine Consultants who are able to help should you require an expert opinion or further investigations.
