​​​What can't I test for?

GetCheckedOnline does not test for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs). You can only use GetCheckedOnline to test for chlamydia and gonorrhea (urine and swab tests), and syphilis, HIV and hepatitis C (blood tests).

There are some times when you may require other types of STI testing. To get the best care, we recommend that you visit one of our clinics, find a clinic in your area or see your health care provider if you need to test for any of the following STIs and other sexual health conditions.

Vaccines can help prevent some STIs

Vaccines can prevent some STIs. Vaccines are available for hepatitis A and B, and for HPV (Human Papillomavirus). Contact your local health clinic to find out more about getting these vaccines.
