Sexual health matters! 🏳️🌈 💓
Thats why we offer sexual health screenings with our experienced sexual health clinician.
STI's can happen to anyone at any age
If you're having sex, its probably worth getting checked out.
Sexual health screenings include:
- education around safe sex
- A safe and confidential place to talk
- blood test for HIV & syphilis (optional)
- swabs for gonorrhoea and Chlamydia
- Condom distribution
- Contraception advice
If you are concerned about an STI please submit an E-consult or Phone us to book a sexual health appointment.
You can also visit the NHS Sexual Health Services website to arrange an appointment with a local clinic. They also offer home testing options and advice: Home - Let's Talk about It (letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk)
'but wont I have symptoms if I have an STI?'
'Nope! STI's such as chlamydia can go on totally unoticed, only about 10% will show symptoms'
'So does that mean I have one?'
'No, if you have had unprotected sex (no condom) you may be at risk, This is why we offer free routine screening so we can be sure'
'Will it hurt? What if I do have an STI?'
ff 'STI screening doesnt genrally hurt, you may need to self swab (female) done in/around your vagina, for males we usually use urine, we also offer a blood test which checks for HIV & syphilis'
'if any results come back positive then we can offer you treatment'
