How It Works
Using a smartphone, tablet or laptop you can order a Home Test Kit in a matter of minutes. Simply fill out a brief questionnaire and we’ll deliver your Home Test Kit to your door.
Answer a short clinical questionnaire and we will send you a discreetly packaged Home Test Kit.
When your Home Test Kit arrives, it will include easy-to-follow instructions. Take your sample, label it, and return it to us as directed.
Our laboratory partner processes your samples and we share the results via your Online Patient Portal. We’ll email you when they’re ready.
If your results are positive or is cause for concern, our clinical team may call you to discuss treatment options and next steps.
Unlike other home STI test kit providers, Webdoctor.ie will provide you with a FREE doctor consultation if your test indicates you have non-negative result. This is done at no extra cost to you. In addition we will provide you with a free referral to a clinic that will ensure you do not have any other STIs. Secondary STI infections can affect up to 40% of those unlucky enough to have been diagnosed with one!
What is HIV?
This is another sexually transmitted infection and is caused by a virus called the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). This virus infects the immune system cells and effectively ‘disables’ the immune system so that the body’s ability to fight infections is diminished. Consequently relatively minor infections can be potentially life threatening. The development of specific anti-viral treatments has transformed this from a once fatal disease to a chronic illness.
Frequently asked questions answered easily.
Are STI home testing kits reliable?
Yes, Webdoctor.ie home test kits are reliable. Each sample is sent to our partner laboratory where we assess and determine your results. All questionnaires and results are reviewed by Irish-registered doctors enabling us to provide expert and reliable medical advice to our patients.
What does a home STI kit test for?
We currently offer a range of STI home test kits that test for HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, and Hepatitis B/C. When you receive your test kit, it will contain simple instructions to help you collect a sample for testing. You will need to use a swab or collect a sample of blood or urine. This will allow us to test for the above-mentioned infections.
How do I get my results?

What if my results indicate a sexual health issue?
Once your results return from our partner laboratory, one of our GPs will review them. If your test indicates that you have an STI/STD, our doctors will advise you of the next steps and provide treatment as appropriate.
