Our most popular home STD test covers the same infections as provided by physicians, hospitals and government schemes. As many STDs do not have symptoms, early detection and treatment is vital to avoid long term consequences. If you test positive, you will be able to start treatment immediately and avoid passing an infection to a partner.
80% of sexually transmitted diseases are asymptomatic (do not display any symptoms), however, if symptoms do occur, they are likely to present themselves within two weeks of infection.
Symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases may include:
- Painful urination
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Rash on the genitals and/or anus
- Itching or irritation on the genitals and/or anus
- Unusual lumps or bumps around the genitals and/or anus
- Change in color of the male or female discharge
- Abnormal discharge in terms of smell, consistency or volume
- Strong vaginal odor
- Painful erections
STDs can take a period of time to become detectable. You should wait at least 4 weeks from the time of potential exposure to disease before taking this test.
Please note that syphilis can take 12 weeks to become detectable. If you are concerned about syphilis, you should wait at least 12 weeks from the time of potential exposure before taking this test.
You should also consider getting tested if:
- you become sexually active
- you have had unprotected sex
- you are experiencing symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease
- you are entering into a new sexual relationship
- you have received a notification from a previous partner that they are infected (STDs can remain dormant for years and/ or take up to three weeks to become detectable.)
The test must be taken fasted, before 9 a.m and returned on the same day.
Chlamydia is an infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia can be contracted through sexual contact and generally shows no symptoms.
Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is transmitted through sexual contact and most commonly causes a yellowish discharge in men and is asymptomatic in women.
HIV (I, II, P24 antigen)
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a blood-borne virus that can be passed on through unprotected anal or vaginal sex and sharing HIV contaminated syringes. HIV attacks immune cells and can develop into AIDs in the later stages.
Syphilis is a chronic bacterial infection by the bacterium Treponema Pallidum. Syphilis is transmitted through sexual contact. If left undiagnosed and untreated, syphilis can eventually cause damage to the brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones, and joints.
Trichomoniasis is caused by infection with the protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis and is transmitted through sexual contact. Trichomoniasis is often responsible for a green or frothy discharge in men and women.
