What could be causing my symptoms?

Not sure when to test for an infection?

If you have any of the above symptoms you should arrange an appointment or attend the walk-in service as soon as possible. If you have no symptoms, then:

  • 2 weeks following sexual contact to test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
  • 1 month following sexual contact to test for HIV
  • 3 months following sexual contact to test for Syphilis or Hepatitis

If you have no genital symptoms, you can request an online test kit here: Order a test kit

Further information on each of these infections can be found on the FPA website.
