If nothing is bothering you but you would like a check-up for sexually transmitted infections, London's new online service is right for you


Screen Shot 2017 12 01 At 081627

Vaginal discharge is often normal. If it is not bothering you but you want to make sure you don't have an STI, then doing a self-check or using the online service is enough.

You can still discuss your symptoms with a doctor or nurse, but treatment is not always required.

Vaginal Discharge

 

If something is bothering you, you will be seen by a trained doctor or nurse

A healthcare assistant may do your routine tests while you wait. This helps to speed up your consultation with the doctor or nurse and will not add to your waiting time.

  • A healthcare assistant will take a blood test for HIV and syphilis - for more information about why HIV is a standard test, see here
  • You will be asked to provide a urine sample or a swab(s) that you take yourself to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Women are also tested for Trichomonas (TV).
  • You may be asked for other samples depending on your symptoms
  • We can also sign you up for free condoms with Come Correct or the Free Condom Project

You will then see a doctor or nurse for a consultation

If you would prefer to see a clinician of the same gender as you, then please ask at reception. You may have to wait a bit longer. Occasionally this may not be possible

The doctor or nurse will need to ask questions about what is wrong. This might include questions about your recent sexual partners, and your health in general. Some of the questions are very personal. We therefore use professional interpreters if necessary and not family members or friends.

The doctor or nurse may need to examine you and take extra tests. They will explain anything they need to do. If you do not understand anything during the discussion or examination, please ask. For more information about what an examination involves, click here.

Our chaperones are here to support you and make you feel comfortable during an examination

Samples are sent to the laboratory and most results are usually back within three working days

We have an automated telephone results line for you to call: 020 8510 5948

All you will need to access results will be your clinic number and date of birth.

Please make sure your mobile number is correct on our system.
