Sexually Transmitted Infections Test & Treatments

Following a recent review by our clinical team, our doctors do not consider it appropriate to supply this treatment via an online consultation only. If you are seeking this or similar medication, we advise you to make an appointment with your regular doctor who can properly assess your suitability for treatment.

The majority of STIs/STDs are easily treatable. However, many people are left undiagnosed and continue to spread the infection. This can be due to a lack of obvious symptoms, a difficulty in getting to a clinic or simply, being too embarrassed to go for a face to face consultation.

Don't let embarrassment become a health risk for you or for your partner. Get tested and quickly obtain the treatment you need without leaving home.

Getting Tested

MyOnlineDoctor provides a testing service that is quick and simple. The tests can be used in the comfort and privacy of your own home, with results available in as little as 24 hours. Treatment will be provided free of charge if you test positive.

To find out more about how testing works visit our Getting Tested FAQs

We check for Chlamydia, on its own and together with Gonorrhoea as part of a Chlamydia/Gonorrhoea Combination Test. These are the two most common STDs in the UK and people frequently test positive for both at the same time.

A full sexual health screen testing for a range of bacterial and viral infections is also available.

Please Note: Urine-based tests are unlikely to pick up signs of an STI infection if you caught the disease within the last two weeks.

We do not test for HIV, Hep B, Hep C, or Syhpilis as the most reliable results for these infections are obtained from a blood test.

Alternatively, you can go to your own doctor or to a sexual health (GUM) clinic in your area. Find your nearest clinic using the Sexual Health Information Service by visiting their website and entering your postcode.


Getting Treatment

Most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can be easily treated using a single dose, or weekly course, of antibiotics.

If you have tested positive using our testing service, we will arrange for a doctor to prescribe an antibiotic or an antiviral drug to you free of charge. The medication will be sent to you by first class recorded delivery.

If you or your partner have already tested positive using another service, you can source treatment from us following approval by our doctor. You will have the option of receiving your medications via Royal Mail Special Next Day Delivery.

As STIs are easily passed on through sexual contact, it is important that your current and past sexual partners are notified and treated if you have a positive diagnosis so as to reduce the risk of spreading and re-infection.

About STIs/STDs

Sexually transmitted infections (sometimes referred to as STDs) are passed on through intimate sexual contact. They can be contracted during unprotected vaginal, anal and oral sexual intercourse, as well as through genital contact with an infected partner.

Anybody can catch an STI/STD, even if you are in a monogamous relationship. This is not necessarily because your partner has been unfaithful but because some infections can lie dormant in the body and may not cause symptoms. For this reason, everyone should get tested.

The number of people who have been diagnosed with STIs has risen significantly over the last few years. In the UK, cases of uncomplicated Gonorrhea increased by 42% between 1998 and 2007, while genital Chlamydia increased by 150%.

If left untreated, STDs can cause infertility and permanent damage to your health, therefore early diagnosis and treatment are very important.




Reducing Risk

Practising safe sex is the most effective way of preventing sexually transmitted infections. The male condom is the most effective method of preventing STIs. However, you can never be 100% sure that a prospective sexual partner does not have an STI. Therefore, if you have a new partner, it is a good idea for you both to be tested for STIs before having sexual intercourse.

The most important ways to reduce your risk are:

  • Keep your partner's body fluids out of your body ( vagina, anus, or mouth). The body fluids to be most careful about are blood, semen/sperm, vaginal fluids and the discharge from sores caused by sexually transmitted infections.
  • Don't touch sores or growths that are caused by sexually transmitted infections. Safer sex also means protecting your partner.
  • Don't allow your body fluids to get into your partner's body.
  • Don't have sex if you have sores or other symptoms of infection.
  • Have routine checkups for infections.

You should visit your GP or local clinic if you experience itching, swelling or redness around the vagina or penis, unusual discharge from the vagina or penis, or pains in the lower abdomen.

It is very important to get the correct treatment if you become infected.



Talking to Your Partner

Open communication about STIs between sexual partners is extremely important for both your health and the future of your relationship. If you think or know you have contracted an STI you should immediately tell your partner. Most STIs can be quite dangerous if left untreated and many have no symptoms. Being faced with the task of informing someone that you have, or have had, an STI, can seem socially devastating. However, the fact is that, given their prevalence in today’s society, anybody who’s sexually active can contract one.

I Don’t Know How I Got An STI? Did My Partner Cheat On Me?

One very common misconception and stigma attached to STIs is the assumption that they are a sign of sexual promiscuity. Often, when someone in a monogamous relationship becomes aware of a sexually transmitted disease or infection, it is automatically assumed that it means that someone in the relationship must have cheated. This may or may not be true. Many STIs can stay dormant in your system for months or years without showing any symptoms so you or your partner may have contracted it from a former boyfriend or girlfriend.

Therefore, when talking to your partner about any newly diagnosedt medical condition, it is important for you both to examine the facts and not rashly jump to conclusions. Make sure they get tested as well so they can get the proper treatment. It is very important that you are both treated at the same time, to avoid passing the infection back and forth between you.
