Product details

Sometimes called the silent infection, Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection that is often symptomless. If you think that there’s a possibility you might have caught chlamydia, we can send you a test to do at home.

The chlamydia test kit for men is a simple urine test. We will send you a pot for your urine sample along with a prepaid envelope to post your sample to our partner laboratory.

For women, the chlamydia home test kit is a 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.

The test will detect whether you have chlamydia and is 99.9% accurate.

You will receive your test kit within 3 - 5 working days of placing your order and your results within 2-3 days of your sample reaching the lab.

How it Works

About Chlamydia Testing

How the Test Works

We send you the chlamydia test kit, you give a urine sample (for men) or do the swab test (for women) and send it to the laboratory in a pre-paid envelope (there is no additional cost for this).

Whilst this test will check whether you have genital chlamydia, it won’t tell you whether you have chlamydia in your anus. If you are concerned about that, speak to a doctor. It also won’t check for other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as gonorrhoea.

We do sell a test for both gonorrhoea and chlamydia though, and an extended STI test, so you might like to consider one of those if you have had unprotected sex.

It is best not to take the test until two weeks after you think you might have been at risk of contracting chlamydia. The test is unlikely to pick up any signs of chlamydia in the first two weeks of the infection.

About Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections and is easily treated with antibiotics. Unfortunately, people often don’t know that they have chlamydia because the symptoms can be hard to spot.

Some people have no symptoms at all. If left untreated chlamydia can lead to serious health problems, including fertility problems and (in women) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. So, if you have had unprotected sex, it makes sense to do a test to check you haven’t contracted it.

Chlamydia Test Kit for Men

The test kit for men contains a small plastic sample bottle, as well as an additional large bottle. Follow the instructions on the leaflet that comes with the test to collect your sample. Use the small bottle to collect your urine and make sure you fill it at least half way.Try to give the urine sample the first time you urinate that day. This produces a more accurate result.

Once you have collected your sample, place the small bottle (which contains your urine) in the bigger bottle, along with the absorbent paper supplied. Make sure both bottles are closed properly.

You will find a label in your test kit. Write your details on it (name, gender, date of birth and the date you collected your sample). The laboratory will not be able to process your chlamydia test without this information. Once you’ve done your sample, post it as soon as possible in the pre-paid envelope provided at your nearest post box. You don’t need to pay any postage.

You will receive your test result within 2 to 3 days of your sample reaching our partner laboratory.

Chlamydia Test Kit for Women

The chlamydia test kit for women comes with a cotton swab test - it looks a bit like a long cotton bud. (Whilst the chlamydia test for men is a urine sample, urine samples are less accurate at detecting chlamydia in women, so the swab test is better.)

Wash and dry your hands before you take the test. Remember not to touch the cotton tip of the swab and don’t put it down anywhere as this could contaminate your specimen and affect your test result. When you are ready to do the swab test, break the seal of the test kit and insert the swab into your vagina. Insert the tip of the swab about two inches and rotate it for approximately 10 to 15 seconds to collect a specimen.

When you have finished, place the swab in the tube provided (without putting it down or touching it). Do not forget to label your sample, following the instructions on the leaflet that came with the test kit. Without your personal details, the lab cannot analyse the sample.

Use the pre-paid envelope to post your sample to the laboratory. You can just put it in any post box.

You will receive your test result within 2 to 3 days of your sample reaching our partner laboratory.

Your Test Result

You will receive an email as soon as your chlamydia test result is available. The email won’t contain any details about your test, you will just be asked to log in to your patient record, where you will find your test result.

Your test result will either be positive or negative. If your result is positive, this means that you have chlamydia. If your result is negative, no infection has been found.

If you have had unprotected sex in the meantime or within the two weeks before you took the test, you will need to repeat the chlamydia test at a later date.
