Relax and follow these simple steps

A rectal swab can test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea if you’ve had anal (in your bottom) sex. 

Step one
  • Wash and dry your hands before opening the sample kit. 

  • Unpack your kit and lay it out on a clean surface.

  • Find a position that is comfortable for you. Lifting one foot onto a chair or toilet seat can be helpful for some people


Step two
  • Gently insert the swab a few centimeters into your anus 

  • Holding the swab around 3-4cm from the top will help you insert it far enough, but not too far. 

  • Twist the swab around gently around 5-10 times and then gently pull out. 

  • Pop the swab back inside its tube.
