Order an STI test by post

If you live in Dorset, you can order a free online postal STI test through our digital sexual health service, SH:24, or if you prefer you can visit one of our Sexual Health Dorset clinics (find one here).

Anyone who lives in Dorset can use this service but there is a cap on how many tests can be accessed daily. If you apply for a test and receive a message to say you can’t have one, this may be because we have reached the daily limit. Please apply the following day if you still require a testing kit.

A quick, confidential assessment will recommend the most appropriate kit for you, which can include tests for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis.

If you want to test for Hepatitis B and C, or if you have symptoms, you should instead visit one of our Sexual Health Dorset clinics here.

For those who test positive for chlamydia, we also offer chlamydia treatment by post too.

  • Tests arrive the next working day in a discreet plain envelope, sent via first class post.
  • Kits include clear instructions and links to online videos to help you take your own samples.
  • Results will be sent to you within 3 days.
  • You can also get support via text or phone from SH:24’s clinicians, 7 days a week.
  • If you need treatment or confirmation testing after getting your results, SH:24 will support you in finding a local clinic.
