Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Check
An active sex life plays an important role in healthy relationships but it also carries risks. Engaging in any sexual activity without protection can result in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
What we test
Syphilis is a bacterial infection usually spread by sexual contact. The disease starts as a painless sore — typically on your genitals, rectum or mouth. Syphilis spreads from person to person via skin or mucous membrane contact with these sores.
Hepatitis may be caused by infection, viruses, chemicals, alcohol, drug use and other factors. Chronic hepatitis means ongoing inflammation of the liver, irrespective of the underlying cause.
HIV, human immunodeficiency virus, causes AIDS by slowly destroying the immune system, leaving the body vulnerable to infections. HIV screening tests detect antibodies to the virus which can usually be detected in the blood about 3-4 weeks after exposure to the virus and nearly always after 3 months.
Your finger prick test kit and all instructions are posted directly to you, and there is no need to visit a collection centre.
