Sexual Health Screening

Our full sexual health screening offers an extensive evaluation, encompassing all major sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

This thorough assessment ensures individuals receive a complete and detailed overview of their sexual health, addressing every significant concern related to STDs.

Understanding STDs

STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease. It refers to infections that are typically transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

STDs can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Common examples include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), Genital Herpes, also known as HSV-2 (Herpes Simplex Virus), and HPV (Human Papillomavirus).

It is important to practice safe sex and get tested regularly if sexually active to prevent, detect, and treat STDs early.

Full STD Screening Package

Our full sexual health screening package includes a consultation with one of our doctors or a sexual health specialist nurse, as well as an examination and full STD testing.

Also included in the package price is a follow-up telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse when the results are back, and any prescriptions you might require.

The Right Time For A Full STD Examination

If you are sexually active, or have had unprotected sex in the past, it is always the right time for a full STD examination. You should always consider getting tested after having unprotected sex, whether you have symptoms or not.

In many cases, the infection is not accompanied by any symptoms until a later stage. Many people also do not realise that sexually transmitted diseases can be transmitted orally.

Therefore, it makes complete sense to be tested for your peace of mind, before starting new relationships, and of course, if you are experiencing symptoms.

Tests Included In The Full Sexual Health Screening

Our full STD screening package includes tests for HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhoea.

During your appointment, the doctor or nurse will take a blood sample and request a urine sample to ensure accurate testing.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, additional swabs can be included to provide a more thorough evaluation. This meticulous approach ensures that all potential infections are identified and addressed appropriately.

Preventing Sexually Transmitted Diseases

  • Practicing Safe Sex: Use condoms correctly every time you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
  • Getting Vaccinated: Vaccinations are available for certain STDs, such as HPV and Hepatitis B.
  • Regular Testing: Get tested regularly for STDs, especially if you have multiple partners.
  • Mutual Monogamy: Engage in a monogamous relationship where both partners are only having sex with each other and have tested negative for STDs.
  • Avoid Sharing Needles: Never share needles or other drug injection equipment, as this can transmit blood-borne infections like HIV and Hepatitis.
  • Use Dental Dams: For oral sex, using dental dams can help reduce the risk of transmitting STDs.

Prevalent STDs In The UK

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STD in the UK. Another common STD is Gonorrhoea, with cases rising in recent years.

Genital Herpes and HPV are also extremely common, with many types affecting different parts of the body. Syphilis, although less common than Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, has been increasing.

HIV, while less common than other STDs, it remains a significant public health concern.

What is your confidentiality policy regarding sexual health screens?
We pride ourselves on having an excellent confidentiality service. You can get tested without providing your real name or your GP’s information, and results will never be shared with third parties. You can get your results in whatever form you prefer.
What are some common symptoms of STDs?
Some STDs have very mild or no symptoms at all, which is why testing is always recommended. Typical symptoms include abnormal discharge, unsual growths or skin changes, soreness, redness, or pain in the genital area, pain on urination or after intercourse, and unusual bleeding.
I have never had an STD test, but I don’t like the thought of being poked and prodded. Is the process painful?
No. At worst you may experience some discomfort, but with an experienced doctor, the tests are quick and easy to take. The full sexual health screening usually involves a consultation with a doctor about your sexual history, and an explanation of the tests you will need. You can expect to have a blood test, a urine test, and possibly a swab test.
