OK, so having a free STI test might not fill you with much enthusiasm

But it's better to know rather than potentially carrying something that could do damage to you or somebody else.

How our online STI test works

  • Step 1 - Order your free test

    To be able to order your test online, you must be between the ages of 16 to 24 and live in an area where free testing is offered. If you do not meet these criteria, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a free test at this time but you can order a test from our sister site

    If you do meet the criteria, you will be directed to an online form to fill out some details about you and where you live. You will also need to tell us a little bit about your sexual health and how you would prefer to be contacted when your results are ready to be collected.

    Once you have done this, we will dispatch the testing kit to you in a discreet package. This will look like a CD case which will fit through most letter boxes. And don't worry, no one will have to sign for your package.

  • Step 2 - Receive the package and then send it back

    When you have received the package, please follow the instructions carefully. The instructions will guide you through when to take a urine sample, how to transfer it to a specimen bottle and then finally, how to package it up securely and safely.

    Once you have packaged the urine sample in the postage envelope, you can then post it at your nearest post box back to us - free of charge.

  • Step 3 - Collect your results

    When you order a free test from us, you can select whether you want to receive notification that your results are ready either by e-mail, SMS or both. We prefer not to send your results to your e-mail or SMS because you never know who might be looking over your shoulder or the timing might not be convenient for you.

    For security reasons, we will send your Access Key on an information leaflet inside the testing kit and your Unique ID will be sent by SMS and/or email.  

    When you are ready to view your results, log on to our online results page here and type in your user ID and access key. The main thing is not to worry or panic, if your test results are positive, be safe in knowledge that you can be treated easily. 

What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a very common Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) and is caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria can be found in the semen of men and vaginal fluids of women who have the infection. Chlamydia can be passed from one person to another during unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex, or it can be passed by sharing sex toys. It can also be passed from mother to baby during birth.

Chlamydia is often referred to as the 'silent infection' as most people who have it don't show any symptoms. If left untreated in women, it can spread to the womb and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which is a major cause of infertility.

Why should I get tested?

75% of women and 50% of men that are infected show no symptoms of Chlamydia and without having a test, you may not know that something is wrong.  If left untreated, the infection can cause health problems including sterility. Get tested today so you don't pass it on and cause health problems for anyone else.

Free testing is available for 16 to 24 year olds through this website and  is funded and managed by local NHS service providers and healthcare commissioners. 'Don't pass it on ' provides an additional discrete and confidential online option in support of existing services.
