According to the Swedish Patient Data Act, we need to write a record in a journal for your visits to us. You must therefore bring an identity document to your visit so that we know that you are really you.
To get tested, come to the drop-in to see a nurse. All sampling is done immediately after meeting with the nurse.
The submitting of samples for chlamydia and gonorrhea means that you who have a vagina will have a sample taken with a cotton swab, and you who have a penis will provide a urine sample. Sometimes it may also be necessary to take samples elsewhere on the body. If you are submitting a urine sample, do not urinate for at least one hour before the visit.
HIV tests are done with a blood sample.
During a counselling session, you can talk about for instance how you are feeling, lifestyle issues, relationships or your study situation. To book a an appointment for counselling, call us during our telephone hours or make the booking in connection with a drop-in to see a social counsellor.
The waiting time for coming to the first counselling session is usually 1-2 weeks. You may be offered up to 5 counselling sessions.
