Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection which is passed on through sexual intercourse. It can be a painful condition that may need treatment. If you are unsure of the cause of your symptoms it’s important to get tested, either when you have signs or symptoms of the virus, or you have had unprotected sex with someone you know has the infection.

To carry out the home test follow these steps:

  • Place an order and get your kit delivered to your door, or collect from a local post office (delivery is free)
  • Collect your sample by following the instructions in the test kit
  • Send your samples to our UK-based, accredited partner laboratory (postage is free) 
  • Once your results are available (in 2 to 3 days), our doctors will review your results  
  • One of our doctors will contact you, via a secure and confidential message in your patient account, to let you know your results and give you advice and support on what to do next

In some cases, the doctor may need to ask for more information. They may contact you by phone, so make sure your telephone number is up to date in your online account.

Due to a national increase in coronavirus testing, our test lab partners are experiencing delays of up to 3-4 days when delivering results from other test kits. We ask for your patience and compassion during these unprecedented times, and we're deeply grateful for your continued understanding.
