STIs will take time to show on a test, so please consider the information below before taking a test. If a test is done too early, it will not be accurate. It is better to wait to take the test if you don’t have symptoms.
- It can take two weeks after sex, for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea to show up on a test
- An HIV test is highly accurate 4 weeks after sex and 100% accurate 8 weeks after sex
- Syphilis can take up to at least 12 weeks to show infection after sex.
If you have had sex without a condom you may want to think about getting a check-up for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and HIV, even if you have no symptoms and everything feels okay. This is because some infections do not cause any symptoms. For example, 7 out of 10 women and 5 out of 10 men don't get any symptoms at all when they have a chlamydia infection.
