Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Testing

The following services are provided under STI testing:

  • Testing and treatment for all STIs, including HIV
  • Hepatitis B vaccination for at-risk groups (NOT for travel/occupational purposes)
  • Confidential support and advice on test results
  • Advice on reducing risk and how to achieve healthy lifestyles
  • Post-exposure prophylaxis (PeP) after exposure to HIV - PeP is only available from Accident & Emergency, Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy

STIs are spread through unprotected sex with an infected person, or through the sharing of sex toys.

Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections is quick, free and non-intrusive, and they can be carried out at any of our drop-in clinics.

Only a urine sample or a swab of affected area is needed for most tests. A blood sample will, however, be offered for Syphillis and HIV tests. 

See also: Downloadable leaflets with information about Chlamydia, Genital Herpes, Genital Warts, Gonorrhoea, Pubic Lice & Scabies, Syphilis, Thrush and Bacterial Vaginosis and Trichomonas Vaginalis are available at the bottom of this page.

Men Only:

We advise that you do not go to the toilet for 2 hours before your STI test, to ensure we can obtain a valid urine sample.
