STI FAQ:s

  1. We recommend that you don’t take the sample if you are experiencing a heavy flow. You can take the sample at the beginning or the end of your period or anytime if you have a light flow.

  2. You must wait at least 7 days from the suspected date of any possible infection, before testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea or trichomoniasis. In the case of mycoplasma, you must wait at least 14 days from the suspected date of infection.

  3. You can take another test to confirm that the infection is gone from three weeks after completing treatment.

  4. Normal delivery time is 3 working days after posting the sample. Analysis takes 1 working day.

  5. Insert the sample stick around 5 cm into your vagina. Press the soft part of the sample stick against the vaginal wall and rotate it 4–6 times. Let the sample stick dry for at least 3 minutes. Don’t allow the soft part to come into contact with anything. Put the sample stick back in the tube and fasten the stopper securely. Done!
