October is one of the most popular months of the year for getting an STI test at Better2Know followed by August, November and January.  Explanations vary but remember that you need to wait between 10 and 28 days to get tested, so people are coming back after their summer holiday or Christmas party and getting tested then.

In October, the most popular cities were:

  1. London
  2. Edinburgh
  3. Manchester
  4. Belfast
  5. Cardiff
  6. Newcastle
  7. Birmingham
  8. Sheffield
  9. Leeds
  10. Cambridge

Although collecting your own sample at home is the most popular of them all!

The most popular tests are Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, HIV and then Herpes.  We think Herpes is popular as Better2Know can test you whether or not you have symptoms, whereas public health services usually say you have to have symptoms as Herpes Simplex Type 1 (Cold sores) is so common.
