STI Bacterial Infections Screen

Test for bacterial STDs

This bacterial test panel tests for the four main bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STDs): chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis.

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 Test Package

This test package includes an accurate urine PCR test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea, with results available in 1 working day, and a swab sent for culture analysis, to check for other bacterial infections that may be causing your symptoms or that may be transmitted to your partner.

Procedure

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

Results

You can choose the most convenient way of receiving your results. You can receive a call from the doctor, email or you can prefer to call us when it suits you.

FAQ

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.
