How does this STD test work?
This test only needs a urine sample. After you have bought your test online, we will post your discreet Full STD Test pack to your home (the postal pack is plain so no one will know what it is). Open the pack, where you will find a form, urine collection pot, an instruction leaflet, and a return envelope. The leaflet will give you instructions on how to collect your sample. It is important that you follow the instructions on the leaflet carefully. You will get an email when your results are ready, but you can log on and check on line whenever you like.
When will my STD test arrive?
If you order your Full STD test before 4pm Monday to Friday, we’ll post it to you first class post same day. Depending upon where you live, your Full STD test should arrive the next working day or the day after.
How long before I get my STD test results?
The results of your Full STD test should be ready within five working days from when your sample arrives at the laboratory.
What happens if my STD Test is positive?
We can arrange an appointment with a Doctor so that you can discuss the results and get a prescription for the required medication (there will be a small fee for this), please call 0844 561 0750 for more information, or you can take your results to your own GP.
Is testing for STDs through Better2Know confidential ?
Yes. Your results and details are 100% confidential and we will not inform your GP or anyone without your permission.
How long should I wait after an encounter before getting this STD test?
