You can request a free test-kit if you are 16 years old or over and live in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
This service is available to people without any symptoms and is a convenient and reliable way of testing without having to attend at clinic in person.
You will need to provide a mobile number.
The kits will be sent to you in a blank envelope with no reference at all to Sexual Health or testing.
If you have symptoms we would prefer to see you at one of our clinics as we have more tests and treatments available. Information can be found here.
The kit can test for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis.
There can sometimes be a delay before a test becomes positive after you have had sex. This is often referred to as the “window period” for testing.
For chlamydia and gonorrhoea this delay or window period is 2 weeks;
For HIV and syphilis the window period is 3 months.
