What happens if the results are positive?
If your results are positive, you will either receive a text message asking you to call the clinic or you will be contacted directly by our service. Sometimes, we have results that are uncertain so we need to redo the test. When you visit the appointment, your doctor, nurse or health advisor will explain your test results and what treatment you need. You will be asked how you would like to let your partner(s) know that they are at risk of an infection. If you prefer, our team can help you to get in touch with your partners. This is very important to stop any infection from spreading further and to start treatment if needed.
Most STIs can be treated when caught early but, if left, they can have serious consequences for health.
