About Self-Sampling

Our simple kits require either a urine or a vaginal swab sample along with a finger-prick blood sample to test for blood borne viruses. Some kits may also offer you additional swabs to test for oral and rectal infections if you have indicated you are at risk of these infections.

Full sample collect instructions are included in your kit, but are also available below along with instructional videos.

If you try but are unable to collect a blood sample, we will still test your swab or urine for chlamydia and gonorrhoea (the most common infections).
