Sexually active males and females of all ages are at risk of sexual transmitted infections (STIs) . Our doctors are very experienced in dealing with STIs and encourage patients with symptoms or concerns regarding STIs to book in for review
In many cases you may not even know you are infected so therefore can pass on an infection to a partner without realising it. This service is beneficial whether you have symptoms of infection (these include discharge, pain, lumps, sores, burning in urine), or if you and your partner simply want to know you are both free of infection.
A Sexual Health Screen involves
A consultation by a doctor (male or female as requested ) who will take:
- Urine sample – tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
- Blood sample – tested for H.I.V, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Syphilis
- Vaginal Swabs where indicated
What do we test for?
Depending on your symptoms, you may be tested or screened for:
- Hepatitis B and C
- Warts (HPV)
- Trichomonas Vaginalis
- Pubic Lice
- Other non sexually transmitted infections such as Thrush
All of our clinical staff have had training in this area and provide a highly professional service. We realise this is a sensitive subject so we provide the service with discretion and confidentiality.
