Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea Test Kit

Order our easy-to-use home test kit

If you want to check whether you have caught either of the sexually transmitted infections chlamydia or gonorrhea, order our home test kit. The test is simple to use. 

For men, it is a urine test. We will send you a sample pot and a prepaid envelope. Simply capture some urine in the sample pot and post it to our partner laboratory using the self-addressed envelope that comes with the test. 

For women, it is a straightforward swab test. The swab looks a bit like a long cotton bud and comes with a diagram showing you how to use it, a tube to protect it and a prepaid envelope for you to send it to our partner laboratory. 

For both types of test, you will receive your test kit within 5-7 working days and your results within 3-5 days of your sample reaching the lab.

How our service works

This home test kit for men is a urine sample that you will provide and send back to our partner laboratory. The home test kit for women is a swab test, because for women a swab test provides more reliable results than a urine test. Everything you need, including a pre-paid envelope to return the sample, is provided with the kit.

The test will detect whether you have chlamydia or gonorrhea and is almost always accurate.

You may choose to do this test as a general health check, to make sure you don't have chlamydia or gonorrhea. Some people choose to take the test when they meet a new partner.

If you are testing because you have recently had unprotected sex and are worried you might have caught chlamydia or gonorrhea, you should wait at least 2 weeks after the incident before testing. The infections take some time to show up, and are unlikely to be detected if you take the test within 2 weeks of the incident.

  • You will receive your test kit 5-7 working days after you have placed your order.
  • Your test results will be available 3-5 days after your sample reaches the laboratory.

The test detects the presence of the following infections:

  • genital chlamydia
  • genital gonorrhea

The test does not detect the presence of these infections in your throat or anus. If you have had unprotected anal or oral sex visit your local GUM clinic to get tested for anal or oral gonorrhea.

The test is a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test which is a method for analysing a short sequence of DNA or RNA from samples containing only minute quantities of DNA or RNA.

The PCR method makes the test more effective at detecting the presence of an infection.
