Frequently Asked Questions

Untreated, chlamydia increases the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. Untreated chlamydia in pregnant women is associated with preterm birth, low birth weight, and eye and respiratory infections in the baby.

Have you tested positive for an STI? Be sure to inform your recent sex partners. This is how you make sure they avoid complications from an untreated STI, prevent passing the STI to others, and avoid passing the STI back to you (if you are still having sex).

It is usually advised to tell the people you have had sex within the past 6 months. However, sometimes it is also necessary to tell partners from longer ago. Speak to your GP about who you should inform.

You may be nervous about telling someone you’re having sex with that you have an STI. You can do this in several ways:

  • Telling them yourself via a phone, email, or in-person conversation
  • Anonymously warn them via partnerwaarschuwing.nl  (in the Netherlands) or wir-ruhr.de (in Germany). Using these services you can tell someone to get tested without making your identity known.
  • Ask your GP or the nurse at an STI clinic to let people you have had sex with know that you tested positive for an STI

 

Whichever method you use to choose, it is always a good idea to inform past partners about STIs. They can then get tested and treated if necessary.

Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are common STIs that are treatable with antibiotics. If you test positive for chlamydia or gonorrhoea, contact your GP for treatment.

Symptoms of chlamydia can appear within 1 to 3 weeks of infection. Some people do not experience any symptoms at all. Symptoms of gonorrhoea usually appear within 2 weeks of being infected, although they sometimes do not appear until several months later. Approximately 1 in 10 infected men and 5 in 10 infected women will not experience any symptoms of gonorrhoea.

All Homed-IQ tests are entirely anonymous and do not require any direct contact with your GP, unless treatment is required. In that case, you may need to take the test results to your doctor to receive a prescription.

The STI test is not suitable for people under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18 and would like to get tested for STIs, please contact a sexual health clinic in your municipality or your GP.

It is also advised not to take this test during the window period for STIs. The window period is the time between the moment of infection (such as after unprotected sex) and when the infection can be detected by a test. If you have taken an STI test before the window period is over and have tested negative, it is advised to test again after the window period.

If you have symptoms consistent with an STI, have been warned by a previous sex partner that they have chlamydia or gonorrhoea, have had unprotected sex, or would otherwise like to check for these STIs, this test is suitable for you. It is important not to take this test during the window period for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. The window period is the time between the moment of infection (such as after unprotected sex) and when the infection can be detected by a test. If you have taken an STI test before the window period is over and have tested negative, it is advised to test again after the window period. The window period for chlamydia and gonorrhoea is 14 days.

Your test results come with an explanation of the results as well as a downloadable laboratory report. This report can be taken to a GP for further testing, treatment, and guidance. If you are unable to visit your GP, please contact a sexual health clinic. 

Homed-IQ’s STI tests offer the same laboratory-certified results you would receive if you had an STI test done through your GP or a sexual health clinic. Homed-IQ works with the same labs that provide tests for clinics, and strives to provide your results quickly and confidentially. STI rapid tests that are available at e.g. the drugstore are often not reliable and may result in a false negative or false positive result.

Can you get an STI while wearing a condom?

Condoms are a good way to prevent both sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy. Transmission of most STIs can be prevented with condoms if they are used correctly and are not broken or expired. While many people believe that condoms are a foolproof way to prevent all STIs, there are certain STIs that condoms do not completely protect against. That is why getting tested for STIs regularly is important, even if you practice safe sex.
