Self-testing for sexual health in the comfort of your own home… with back-up from experienced sexual health advisers

Pop your samples in the post… our experts will do the rest. We’ll supply your results and signpost you into to a clinic of your choice It’s simple, fast and totally confidential.

What the kit tests for:

HIV

HIV

HIV is a virus which attacks the immune system, and weakens your ability to fight infections and disease.

It’s most commonly caught by having sex (vaginal, anal or oral) with someone who is infected.

There is no cure for HIV, but there are treatments to enable most people with the virus to live a long and healthy life.

The test is unlikely to detect HIV if you contracted it within the last 4 weeks.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection, caught by having sexual contact (vaginal, oral or anal sex) with someone who is infected.

Men are more likely to have symptoms of Gonorrhoea than women, but both men and women can have Gonorrhoea without symptoms.

This test kit is unlikely to pick up Gonorrhoea if you caught it within the last 2 weeks.

Syphilis

Syphilis

Syphilis is a bacterial infection. It’s caught through sexual contact (vaginal, oral or anal sex). Many people who are infected don’t have, or don’t notice, any symptoms.

Syphilis can be detected in a blood test from 9-21 days after contact with the infection, but can sometimes take up to 90 days to be detected.

This test will pick up previous Syphilis infections. So if you’ve been diagnosed with Syphilis before, you should go to a sexual health clinic for testing.

This test kit is unlikely to pick up syphilis if you caught it within the last 3 weeks.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the UK.

It is caught by having sexual contact (vaginal, oral or anal sex) with someone who is infected.

Most people who have Chlamydia don’t notice any symptoms, and so don't know they have it.

This test kit is unlikely to pick up Chlamydia if you caught it within the last 2 weeks.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a type of virus that infects the liver. It can be caught through sexual contact (vaginal, anal, oral sex) with someone who is infected. Hepatitis B can be prevented through vaccination if you have never had the infection.

Most people who have caught Hepatitis B don’t have obvious symptoms. Some don’t ‘clear’ the infection completely and are infectious for life.

This test will only show whether you have been in contact with Hepatitis B; it will NOT tell you whether you are an infectious carrier, or if you’ve had previous vaccinations and need more. So if you’ve been diagnosed with Hepatitis B in the past, or you’ve had previous testing and vaccination, you should go to a sexual health centre for testing.

This test is unlikely to pick up Hepatitis B if you caught it within the last 6 weeks.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a type of virus that can infect the liver. You can become infected with hepatitis C if you come into contact with the blood of an infected person, and less commonly, through vaginal or anal sex.

There is no vaccination to prevent Hepatitis C. Most people who have caught Hepatitis C have no symptoms or signs of infection, and so don’t know they have it.

This test will only show whether you have been in contact with Hepatitis C; it won’t tell you about level of liver damage or stage of disease. People diagnosed with hepatitis C can get further testing and care at a sexual health centre.

This test is unlikely to pick up Hepatitis C if you caught it within the last 6 weeks.

 

Is it right for me?

If you’ve had sex (vaginal, anal or oral) since you were last screened, the kit is for you. But if you have symptoms, especially if they are related to your genital area, we really recommend you head for an NHS sexual health clinic, where you may be advised to have different testing to our standard tests.

Even if you have symptoms you can be confident that our tests will pick up if you have any of the following conditions*: HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and C, gonorrhoea and chlamydia. That’s a fairly comprehensive list. However, an NHS specialist might identify a specific problem which isn’t covered by these tests.

*please bear in mind the ‘window period’ before each condition shows up in tests – these are listed when you click on the name of the condition.

How it works:

Step 1
Step 1: Take the quick quiz so we can provide
the right test package for you.

STEP 1

We need to make sure your personal kit has all the tests you need, and nothing else. Risk of STIs isn’t about labels (straight, gay, bi, or whatever else) - it’s about what kind of sex we have... so that’s what the questions are about. They might seem pretty direct, but they’re designed to make this as quick and painless for you as possible!

Step 2
Step 2: We’ll post your kit for next-day delivery.

STEP 2

Test kits ordered before 5pm Monday to Friday will be sent out the next working day by First Class Royal Mail. The packaging is plain – no one will know what it is. It fits through a letter box without needing to be signed for. We won’t tell your GP (or anyone else). On your bank statement the transaction will appear as 'Freedoms Shop'.

Step 3
Step 3: Take your samples and post them.

STEP 3

Full instructions for taking samples will be in your kit. The tests involve taking your own blood samples, urine samples and (if needed) swabs.

Step 4
Step 4: You’ll get your results via text or phone.

STEP 4

You’ll receive your results within five working days of our lab receiving your samples. There are two options – choose from:

Standard Results – If your test results are all clear, you’ll receive a text to let you know. If any results are positive, one of our experienced sexual health advisers will call you. He or she will discuss your results and advise you how to get the right care.

Plus Results – One of our experienced sexual health advisers will call you to discuss all your results. He or she will answer in detail any questions you might have about sexual health, including how to get the right care.
