When you are worried that you may have contracted an STD, it is important that you get an STD test quickly. Waiting for your results can be stressful for both you and your sexual partner and that is why many people are now choosing private STD testing clinics, as opposed to their local GP.
STD test results can take up to two weeks to come back from an NHS doctor, but at a private testing clinic, results are usually given to you the same day or within 48 hours of being tested. People also use private STD clinics because they are 100% confidential; your NHS doctor will put the results onto your medical record, where it can be seen by third parties.
Private STD clinics are also 100% anonymous, no medical records are taken and none of the information is shared with third parties. You can also give a false name and receive your test results either in person or over the phone.
All these benefits are why people come to Better2Know for help. Better2Know’s clinics are 100% confidential, give fast results and if you wish to be anonymous, that’s absolutely fine.
Sexually active people who have more than one partner are advised to have regular STD tests, as many of the symptoms are subtle or easily mistaken; many people do not know that they have an STD until other problems surface.
