STIs

Free STI home testing kits

If you are worried that you might have a STI, you may be able to get a free STI testing kit sent to your home.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are any kind of bacterial or viral infection that can be passed on through unprotected sexual contact. They can have a number of signs and symptoms, however some STIs have no symptoms, and if left untreated they can lead to infertility.

If you are worried that you might have a STI, you may be able to get a free STI kit sent to your home. If you have symptoms, you should get in touch with your local sexual health service or GP as soon as possible.

Not all STIs have symptoms

If you’ve had unprotected sex, especially if it’s with a new partner, you should have an STI test even if you don’t have any symptoms.

Waiting two weeks after unprotected sex to take the test will provide a more accurate result. For HIV testing, you need to wait 6 weeks to take a test in order to get the most accurate result.

You may also need to consider emergency contraception (you will need to seek help within 5 days of unprotected sex). Find out more about emergency contraception

Find out more about different types of STIs here.


Where can I get my STI testing kit?

Select the region of the UK you live in from the list below to see which providers are available in your area.

Each STI kit will be different as it will depend on what is available in your area. Some may only provide Chlamydia testing, whilst others may offer Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV and Syphilis tests. Make sure to check the provider website for the most up-to-date information on the type of test offered and age criteria. If you’d prefer to speak to a nurse or doctor, you can visit a Brook service, local sexual health service (GUM clinic), young people’s service or your GP.

Select your region:

What if there isn’t a free home test option for my area?

If you can’t order a test online for free, or you’d prefer to speak to a nurse or doctor, you can visit a Brook service, local sexual health service (GUM clinic), young people’s service or your GP. Find your nearest using our find a service tool.

Another option is to use a paid-for test-at-home service, such as Fettle.

What happens if my results say I’ve got an STI?

Most STIs can be easily treated with antibiotics.

If you test positive, you should contact your local clinic, they will encourage you to talk to your recent partners so they can be tested as well. The clinic will help you find the best way to talk to other people if you need to, and can even contact them for you through ‘partner notification’ without even mentioning your name.

Treatment for STIs
  • Chlamydia: is treated with a course of antibiotics. The two most commonly prescribed treatments are: Azithromycin (single dose) or Doxycycline (a longer course, usually two capsules a day for a week)
  • Gonorrhoea: treatment usually involves having an antibiotic injection and a single dose of antibiotic tablets
  • HIV: HIV is preventable (through using condoms) and treatable (with drugs called antiretrovirals), but it is not curable
  • Syphilis: usually treated with a single antibiotic injection or a course of injections

Most antibiotics are safe to use with hormonal contraception (like the pill, patch, injection or implant) but talk to the person prescribing the treatment to make sure.

Tell the nurse or doctor if you are pregnant or think you may be, or if you are breastfeeding. This will affect the type of antibiotic you are given.

Side effects of antibiotics are usually very mild but may include stomach ache, diarrhoea, feeling sick and thrush.

Don’t pass it on!

You should also avoid having sex until you have been given the all-clear, to prevent you being re-infected or passing the infection on.
