A single swab, like a cotton bud, is all we need from you to test for both chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Swabbing your vagina doesn’t hurt and only takes a few seconds to complete. Both chlamydia and gonorrhoea are easily treatable with antibiotics.
Blood affects the accuracy of this test. Collect your swab sample before taking your abortion pills.
The information collected about you is kept safe and secure. You have already agreed on your
password and telephone number for your test results during booking or telephone consultation.
You will need to quote your password when we check your identity to confirm it is safe to discuss your test results over the telephone.
Results are usually available within a week of the laboratory receiving the sample. If your results are
negative (meaning you don’t have an infection), we will notify you as agreed by text. If your results
are positive (meaning you have an infection) or your results are unclear (meaning they need to be
repeated), we will either text you with instructions to call the results service or they will contact you.
We can support you to notify your partner(s).
