Tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Many STIs don’t display any symptoms but can lead to long-term health problems including infertility, so it’s always a good idea to have regular tests if you are sexually active.

Our Online Doctor service can offer discreet advice and treatment for a number of STIs without the need for a face-to-face appointment. It you are prescribed a treatment you can either have it delivered to you by next day delivery or you can pick it up at participating LloydsPharmacy stores the same day (if ordered by 4pm, exclusions apply).
