CHLAMYDIA TEST KIT FACTS

CHLAMYDIA TEST KIT FACTS

About the chlamydia test kit

Our chlamydia home test is an accurate laboratory test for genital chlamydia. The test for women requires you to collect a vaginal swab.

You should wait for at least two weeks after you think you were exposed to chlamydia before doing this test. That way the test is most likely to detect this infection.

If you think you could have got chlamydia within the last two weeks, you can buy the test now but don’t collect and return your sample until two weeks have gone by.

How does the test work?

Use the kit we send you to collect a swab from your vagina. Send the swab to our partner laboratory. When the lab sends us your test result, we’ll share it with you in your secure account.

How do I take a vaginal swab?

Follow our simple instructions and insert the soft swab we send you approximately 2 inches inside your vagina. The swab takes a sample of fluid. Put it in the packaging we include and send it to our partner laboratory.

Is the test kit accurate?

Yes. The test that the laboratory runs is the same test that’s routinely run in the NHS.

If you got chlamydia in the last two weeks, the test is unlikely to detect your infection.

If you start to show symptoms before you take a test or before you get your results you must visit your GP or health clinic.

What happens if I test positive?

If you test positive for chlamydia, we can offer you treatment through the Boots Online Doctor Service.

If you start to show symptoms before you get your results you must visit your GP or health clinic.

What are the symptoms?

Many women with genital chlamydia don’t have symptoms.

However, if you do get symptoms these include vaginal discharge or discomfort, pain when peeing or abnormal bleeding.

What happens if I already have symptoms?

If you’ve got any symptoms of an STI, you must visit your GP or health clinic. It’s important to get treated because if left untreated it can lead to long-term health problems.

What happens if I don’t take the Boots home test?

If you decide not to use our home test kit you can make an appointment at your local GP or GUM clinic to get tested in person.
