What happens at my Instant testing appointment?

At your private appointment, you will be seen by a qualified clinician who will explain your Instant test, collect your samples, and answer any further questions you may have.

Our Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Instant tests each require a swab sample to test both men and women. This will be a urethral swab for a male and a vaginal swab for a female.

The other four tests use blood samples, which are collected using a finger prick lancet. Each infection can be tested for individually, or combined with others as part of an Instant STI screen.

With this fast, accurate testing service, you will receive your results whilst you wait in the clinic.

What if I test positive?

If your Instant test is reactive, Better2Know will help you access the support and treatment you need. For those with reactive Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea Instant tests, a prescription for the medication you require will be provided by your Better2Know doctor.

If your HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C result is reactive, you can choose to schedule a further, laboratory-based test for no additional fee. We can also arrange telephone or face-to-face consultations with one of our many doctors in the Middle East, either before your test or following your results.

All Better2Know’s tests, screens and services are conducted in line with national regulations. As such, we may be required to report certain positive results and, depending on the state’s legislation, personal identification might also be required at your appointment. Remember, it is always advisable to be aware of the local laws wherever you are in the Middle East.
