What testing can I have in clinic?

What testing can I have in clinic?

We offer a range of tests, depending on what kind of sex you have had recently, who your partners were and what symptoms you might have. These tests include:

  • chlamydia and gonorrhoea tests on urine, vaginal, rectal (after anal sex) and throat (after oral sex) samples
  • other tests for NSU, trichomomas, bacterial vaginosis and thrush

It can take some time after you have picked up an infection before we can test accurately for it. This is because it takes time for our bodies to make the markers that we test for in response to an infection. The doctor or nurse will explain to you if this applies to you testing in clinic.

Take a look at these pages to read about all the possible infections that can be picked up through sexual contact and which we can diagnose in our clinics.
