Complete Kit FAQ
What are you testing for?
With the Complete Kit we test for an extensive range of potential STD’s.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are two of the most commonly diagnosed STD’s. Both are bacterial infections which are easily curable if detected. Unfortunately many people with these infections go undiagnosed due to lack of symptoms and this can lead to long term problems such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that can cause widespread systemic problems if left untreated. Thankfully Syphilis can be cured with appropriate treatment.
Viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis can shorten your life if left untreated. Many people now manage to live healthy lives with these conditions as long as they receive appropriate treatment.
Other conditions tested for in the Complete Kit include Trichomoniasis, Gardnerella, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, Herpes simplex 1, Herpes simplex 11 which are treatable if detected.
When to get tested?
We advise that you wait 2 weeks after potential exposure so the result will be accurate.
Infections such as HIV can take several months to be detectable on testing.
Is the test Accurate?
Our doctors have carefully chosen an accredited laboratory with experience in STD testing to analyse your sample. The results are as accurate as testing in a GP surgery or hospital STD clinic.
