Private sexual health testing Westminster

If you have an emergency, you can schedule a same-day appointment with our private GP or walk in during working hours to see the doctor. We are available if you need to speak with a consultant specialist concerning contraceptive options, including laboratory pregnancy blood testing, for guaranteed results and peace of mind.

We use polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing at our clinic, the gold standard for sexual health testing. You shouldn’t confuse the PCR test with less reliable and cheaper culture testing options. Many sexual health service providers use cheaper tests, including home testing kits, to cut lab costs, which increases the risk of unreliable results.

We prioritise providing premium services that our patients can trust, so we never compromise on the clinical quality of all our tests. We perform all analyses with PCR testing at reputable UKAS accredited laboratories.

We have a dedicated courier service from our referral laboratories that attend the clinic to pick up samples for testing at the laboratory, and we can have your sample being analysed within an hour of your appointment.

If you need same-day STI testing in Westminster, our clinic is available.

Frequently asked questions on STD testing

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also called sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or venereal diseases (VD), are infections passed from sexual contact. Generally, they don’t present symptoms during the initial stages, which makes regular screening necessary.

Different options are available for people who want an STD screening. Our STD testing packages strike a balance between comprehensiveness and value, with options for screening the most common infections to a full range of STD screening, including specific testing for people who think they have a particular STD.

Our standard blood test for hepatitis, syphilis and HIV have a 24-hour turnaround time, while urine cultures for gonorrhoea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, mycoplasma, Gardnerella, mycoplasma, Herpes I and II takes 2 – 4 days for accurate results.

You can also access expedited services where results are available within 4 hours for Syphilis, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, Gonorrhoea and HIV. Please note this service is available at an additional cost.

You need STD testing to know if you have a sexually transmitted disease. Most STDs show no obvious symptoms. If you are sexually active, you engage in oral, anal and vaginal intercourse.

If your doctor asks if you are sexually active, they want to know if you have had any sexual intercourse since your last screening that exposes you to pregnancy or STDs. STD testing is a vital part of your routine health check. If you have serious concerns about an STD, visit your doctor for immediate testing.

In most cases, STDs do not show any signs or symptoms, and when they do, the symptoms are often mild. However, if you experience the following symptoms, ensure you consult your doctor because you may have contracted an STD.

  • Abnormal fluid or discharge that is whitish or yellowish from the vagina or penis
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Unexplained rashes
  • Bumps, sores, warts, or blisters in the genital area on the vagina, clitoris, inner and outer vaginal lips for women, and in or around the penis and testicles for men

You can take several steps to reduce your chances of contracting an STD.

  • Stay faithful

When you have sex with only one person you trust and aren’t infected, it means you won’t get infected by the person.

  • Use condoms

Use latex or polyurethane condoms to protect you from getting STDs when used correctly during all sexual intercourse.

  • Have fewer partners

The more people you engage in sexual activities with, the more likely you will get an STD. If you have sex with a new partner, ensure you get tested.

  • Do not mix drugs and alcohol with sex – getting high or drunk interferes with your ability to make the right decisions when it comes to sex
  • Avoid using IV street drugs and do not share needles because you can get STDs through infected blood
  • Do not have sex because abstinence is the most effective option for preventing an STD.

It depends on what you identify as being a virgin. You can get STDs from oral and anal sex, but many people consider themselves a virgin if they haven’t had vaginal intercourse. Some STDs are transmitted through intimate skin contact, even without penetration.

Condoms aren’t 100% effective, but when used correctly during every sexual intercourse, they can protect you from STDs spread through bodily fluids such as semen or vaginal secretions. They do not protect against STDs that are transmitted via skin-to-skin contact.

You can get herpes through kissing, but the chances of contracting most STDs through this mean is less.

Most STDs require testing a blood or urine sample. At our clinic, our doctors check for the following sexually transmitted diseases.

  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Herpes
  • Mycoplasma genitalium

In some cases, blood tests aren’t as accurate as other tests. For example, it may take a month or more after exposure to some STIs for the blood test to detect it. If you contract HIV, it takes up to 28 days to a few months for the blood test to detect the infection.

You can get a negative chlamydia and gonorrhoea test result if testing is after having sex or urinating too soon when the test is performed with a urine sample. A gonorrhoea urine test can give an accurate result within a week after exposure, but chlamydia gives an accurate result after two weeks.

STDs that are from bacterial infections are curable with antibiotics. Some bacterial STDs include ureaplasma, mycoplasma genitalium, chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Viral STDs aren’t treatable but manageable. If you get a viral STD, it remains throughout your life.

Usually, it takes 3 – 4 days to get the results of a swab or urine test for STDs.

The different healthcare centres have varying prices for STD tests. However, the cost of STD testing falls between £50 - £650.

Some STDs like hepatitis B, HIV and syphilis may result in more infections. You can have these STDs and experience no symptoms; in some cases, the symptoms will clear on their own. Many STDs are easily treatable when detected early.

If you have a sexually transmitted infection, you can visit the nearest sexual health clinic. You can successfully treat STIs, but you need to check for the symptoms early.

A GUM (genitourinary medicine) clinic is where you can discuss with the doctor about your sexual health. You can find a GUM clinic at the hospital or health care centre that provides different sexual health services such as contraception advice, testing and treating STIs like genital warts, chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and counselling for AIDs and HIV.

Sexual health or GUM clinics provide different services. These services include treating and testing for different sexually transmitted infections.

UM clinics perform confidential tests and treat sexually transmitted infections. They have specialists in sexual health issues that help to conduct tests and treatment for STIs.

Yes, you can. Getting an STD from engaging in oral sex without using a condom is possible. Herpes can spread easily from one partner to the other during oral sex because it is transmitted through direct skin contact, not only bodily fluids. Other STIs like gonorrhoea and chlamydia can cause infection in the throat.

Bacterial STDs are usually treatable with antibiotics if treatment starts early. Although you can’t completely cure viral STDs, you can manage the symptoms with proper medications, even HIV is completely manageable with modern treatment, HIV positive patients can live perfectly normally.

STDs are usually transmitted via direct contact with infected bodily fluids such as vaginal fluid, semen or blood, and they also spread from contact with infected skin, mouth sores and mucous membranes. You can get exposed to infected skin and bodily fluids through vagina, oral and anal sex.

The symptoms of STDs range from mild to severe. Many women suspect having an STD when they experience abnormal symptoms in their genital areas, such as itching, rash, discharge, and vaginal or pelvic pain. You can only know if you’ve contracted an STD by getting tested.
