Bacterial Infections Test

Test for bacterial STDs

This bacterial tests available test for bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STDs): Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Mycoplasma genitalium, Ureaplasma, Trichomonas vaginalis, and Gardnerella vaginalis

Getting Tested

Any unprotected sexual contact carries with it the risk of sexually transmitted infection (STI). Not all infections have symptoms, so it is not always possible to know if you are carrying a sexually-transmitted disease.

Getting tested for STIs is quick, straightforward, and gives you peace of mind. Most infections can be effectively treated.

Our Tests

We offer a few sexual health test packages for bacterial infections including chlamydia and gonorrhoea and swabs for all bacterial infections from any site. If you are symptomatic, swabs will be recommended. There is no one-size-fits-all with sexual health testing which is why during your consultation and examination, your doctor or sexual health specialist nurse will recommend the right way forward for you.

If you have no symptoms and are testing for peace of mind, there is no consultation fee payable.

However, if you have any symptoms, please note that a consultation fee is payable of £85 with a specialist nurse or £175 with a GP.


Preparing for test

It is advised that you hold your urine for 2 hours before the test.

During the test

Bacterial tests require the doctor to take a swab of cells, either from the cervix or the penis. This is a quick and painless procedure. A urine sample will also be collected.

Type of sample taken:

Urine, Swab when appropriate


You can choose the most convenient way of receiving your results, whether by email, telephone, or by post. You can collect them in person if you prefer, or call in to the clinic. If you need treatment, the doctor or nurse will contact you directly to discuss your results and the next steps.


I have recently had a smear test. Do I need to have an STD screen?

Yes. The procedure for a smear test is similar to that of a bacterial infection screen, but smear tests do not check for bacterial infections.

Do I need the bacterial screen, or the blood screen?

The blood test screening is for those who are more high-risk for certain types of infections. Bacterial infections are far more common and therefore more easily spread.

Do I need an STI test?

STI tests are recommended for anyone who is having regular unprotected sex (sex without condoms), particularly if you have multiple partners. It can also be a good idea to get tested when you get together with a new partner, to avoid spreading any existing infections.
