A major issue for most people is knowing which sexually transmitted pathogens to test for. In many cases, patients have attended free sexual health screening services, yet are still experiencing some symptoms post-treatment. The reason for this, is that routine and free STD screens typically do not test for all sexually transmitted diseases, such as Ureaplasma or HPV.
At STD Check London, our packages include a consultation and examination by our experienced private doctor, who will discuss your history and the reason why you would like to get tested. Based on your clinical picture, you will then be in a better place to decide which level of testing you wish to undergo, saving you the time, expense and hassle of multiple sexual health tests. Included in our packages is a review of your results and prescription for any treatment, if needed.
STDs and STIs are common because many people do not know how to prevent and avoid contracting them. A lot of people do not realise they are infected because many STDs can remain present in the system without showing any symptom. Even though the infection is asymptomatic, it can still be spread. That is why regular testing for STDs is important.
It is recommended that sexually active young adults should test for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhoea at least once a year. However, anyone who is sexually active, irrespective of age should test for STDs regularly.
