Why would I need a sexual health screen?
If you are sexually active, sexual health screening tests are recommended, particularly if you have had a change of partner or are experiencing symptoms. A comprehensive collection of tests can be undertaken here including swab tests or urine tests for chlamydia (dubbed the silent disease), gonorrhoea, mycoplasma, herpes (if symptomatic) as well as bacterial vaginosis and thrush. Syphilis and/ or HIV screening blood tests can be added to these tests if required. Early diagnosis of infections will help avoid longer term problems.
