Sexual Health Clinic

City of London Private Sexual Health Clinic

The Montague Clinic provides a fast, secure, and discrete Sexual Health Clinic in the City of London to help you with any sexual health concerns. All patients are welcome and your information is not shared with anyone, including your NHS GP. We also give you full control over how results are communicated to you.

How it works

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the sexual health service confidential?2020-12-23T17:42:10+00:00

The service is completely confidential and your results are not shared with anyone including your own GP. Most of our patients come to see us for general medical problems and so nobody apart from the doctor will know you are coming for a sexual health issue. All appointment reminders and payment references will appear like our general medical GP consultations.

If I’ve had unprotected sex, how soon should I have my test?2020-11-03T21:53:00+00:00

Urine and swab tests for chlamydia and gonorrhoea are most accurate if done 2 weeks after a potential exposure. Blood tests for HIV and syphilis are accurate from 4 weeks after exposure (although there is a specialist early detection test for HIV that is accurate after 10 days.) 

You can still have the tests earlier than these timeframes, but if they come back as negative it would be advisable to repeat them at the appropriate time interval.

Can I choose to see a male or female doctor?2020-12-23T17:41:58+00:00

Both of the founding GPs at The Montague Clinic are male so at present we are unable to offer a consultation with a female GP. If you require a genital examination, one of our nursing team would be available to chaperone if you wish. Please note that currently, the best way for females to provide a sample is a ‘self-swab’. The pick up rate is better with this method compared to when a clinician takes a swab (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5999261/). 

Am I able to have a chaperone?2020-12-23T17:41:51+00:00

Yes. We have a nursing team that is always available to chaperone. 

Can I decide which tests I want at my appointment?2020-12-23T17:41:46+00:00

This is the best approach. The doctor will help you to assess your risk of STIs and guide you about which tests to consider. 

How will my tests be done?2020-12-23T17:41:41+00:00

Basic female sexual health tests involve a self taken vaginal swab, and for males it’s a urine test. Males should not pass urine for two hours prior to their appointment.  

How fast will I get my results?2020-12-23T17:41:34+00:00

This depends on what type of tests you need. The vast majority of tests come back within 2 days but there is a fast track option for the common tests which can come back the same day. More unusual tests such as herpes swabs can take up to 7 days for results to come back. 

How will I receive my results?2020-12-23T17:41:24+00:00

You will have full control over this. We can either send results to you via secure email, SMS or by a telephone call. We’ll work with you to get results to you in the most appropriate way. 

Are you able to treat all STIs?2020-12-23T17:41:18+00:00

We can provide treatment for common STIs like chlamydia and herpes. Some rarer STIs need an antibiotic injection and specialist input, so if we identify one of these we would help to direct you to the most appropriate service to help you. 

Is treatment included in the price?2020-12-23T17:41:13+00:00

If we are able to treat your STI with tablets, then providing this aftercare is included in your price. Some rarer STIs need special treatment with antibiotic injections so if we identify one of these, we’ll help you access this treatment from an appropriate service.
