Overview

Sexual Health (STI/STD) Consultation

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are infections that are commonly spread through sexual activity. They can lead to serious health problems if left untreated, including infertility, organ damage, certain types of cancer, and in severe cases, even death.
Treatment is recommended when an individual experiences symptoms of an STI/STD, such as unusual discharge, pain during intercourse, or sores in the genital area. However, many STIs/STDs can be asymptomatic, making regular screenings crucial, especially for those with multiple sexual partners or those not consistently using protection.
Our Sexual Health Consultation service provides a comprehensive assessment of symptoms and advice on appropriate next steps. The primary objective is to diagnose any potential STIs/STDs and provide guidance on treatment options.
