Same-day STD Tests and Result

Getting your STD test and result on the same day in London is a huge relief for most people. STDs are easily and quickly transmitted, and it gives people peace of mind to quickly know whether they are infected or not.

Getting the result of your STD test on time helps you start your treatment on time and increases the chances of undergoing a successful STD treatment because most STDs are easily treatable when detected on time. Knowing whether you have an STD also helps reduce your chances of transmitting the disease to someone else.

However, it is not possible to get the result for some STDs on the same day. Getting a same-day STD test result depends on two things.

  • The type of STD test you want to perform
  • The duration of the infection

In London, you can get same-day STD test and result for about six common STDs. Some clinics offer instant result, which requires a wait time of 30 minutes.

Below are the six most common STDs and their minimum wait time after infection or contact with an infected person before you can get the test.

  • Chlamydia - requires about 14 days after exposure to an infected person
  • Gonorrhoea - requires a minimum of 14 days after exposure to the infection

  • Hepatitis C - requires at least ten days from the day of infection
  • HIV - at least 26 days from the initial infection day
  • Syphilis - at least 14 days after exposure to the infection

Most of these same-day STD tests in London requires a small blood sample, usually a fingerprick blood sample.
