How soon can I test for sexually transmitted infections?


Not all STIs show up immediately on tests. If you don’t have any symptoms, we recommend testing after two weeks for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and after 4 weeks for HIV. However you should getting another test for HIV and Syphilis 12 weeks you’ve had unprotected sex, as this will be more accurate. If you have symptoms, you should come in straight away for testing.
