Oral swab test
- Tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
- Important if you give oral sex
Oral is a certified lab test, especially packaged and designed for home sampling. STDs that you contracted more than 14 days ago are discovered.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea (also known as the Clap or Tripper) are the most common severe sexually transmitted diseases. They often come without noticeable symptoms, but affect e.g. fertility and unborn babies. People with an active sex life easily spread them. The use of condoms is not a guarantee to be clean.
This oral swab-test analyses the presence of these infections in your throat. This is especially important for those who have any kind of unprotected oral sex.
Your test is packaged discreetly in a plain envelope, that fits into your mailbox. When you order multiple tests, they arrive each in their own envelope. Order before 17:30 and get your test delivered home with Swiss A-Post the next day (except Sundays and public holidays).
