Sex Workers Service

We recognise that if you are working in the sex industry you may be worried about you sexual health or worry about judgement when visiting a service. We pride ourselves at Swish in offering a confidential and  non-judgemental service, and we work to a model of harm reduction and human rights. 

SWISH are currently running a trial of online STI testing. If you are a sex worker and do not have any symptoms you may be eligible to take part.

STIs will take time to show on a test, so please consider the information below before taking a test. If a test is done too early, it will not be accurate. It is better to wait to take the test if you don’t have symptoms.

  • It can take two weeks after sex, for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea to show up on a test
  • An HIV test is highly accurate 4 weeks after sex and 100% accurate 8 weeks after sex
  • Syphilis can take up to at least 12 weeks to show infection after sex

If you have multiple partners, we suggest you come and have a check-up every three months. This is important because some people don’t have any symptoms when they have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or HIV, which increases the risk of harming their own health, and passing on the infection to their sexual partners.
