We understand that it can sometimes be embarrassing and inconvenient to get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). With a testing kit from Prescription Doctor, you can test yourself for the most common infection from the privacy of your own home.
Our testing kits screen for a variety of different conditions and come with everything you need to perform a safe test, including instructions and a free post envelope.
It is recommended to get tested for STIs every time you change sexual partners. If you are within a high risk group for HIV, you should be regularly screened for the disease.
If you are sexually active and not in a monogamous relationship, you should get tested regularly, regardless of whether you believe you have been exposed to an infection.
Sexually transmitted diseases can be asymptomatic, meaning that you may not experience any symptoms while infected. You could accidentally pass the infection on to other people without knowing. These asymptomatic infections can only be detected through an STI test.

Upon receipt of your results, we will contact you via your preferred method (email or text) to inform you that your results are available to view.
You will be able to access your results via your Prescription Doctor account. Simply login to your account area to see the results.
If your test comes back positive, you should contact a health professional as soon as possible to get the support and treatment you need.
