The rectal swab test is a convenient home test kit for anal chlamydia and anal gonorrhea. It checks for the presence of these infections in the back passage and is recommended for anyone who has had unprotected anal sex. The test is quick and simple.
To carry out the home test follow these steps:
Place an order and get your kit delivered to your door, or collect from a local post office (delivery is free)
Collect your sample by following the instructions in the test kit
Send your samples to our UK-based, accredited partner laboratory (postage is free)
Once your results are available (in 2 to 3 days), our doctors will review your results
One of our doctors will contact you, via a secure and confidential message in your patient account, to let you know your results and give you advice and support on what to do next
In some cases, the doctor may need to ask for more information. They may contact you by phone, so make sure your telephone number is up to date in your online account.
Due to a national increase in coronavirus testing, our test lab partners are experiencing delays of up to 3–4 days when delivering results from other test kits. We ask for your patience and compassion during these unprecedented times, and we're deeply grateful for your continued understanding.

For chlamydia and gonorrhoea, you should wait to test for 2 weeks after you think you contracted them. This is because they are not likely to show up on a test taken before then.
There is a small chance that any recently acquired infections may not show up on a test. If you get a negative result, you should repeat the test 6 weeks after the incident to make sure that any recent infections are detected.
