Overview

Sexual Health Test (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 cause a range of health problems, from mild symptoms to severe complications such as infertility or increased risk of HIV.
Treatment is recommended when an individual experiences symptoms suggestive of an STI/STD, or when they have been at risk due to unprotected sex or multiple sexual partners. Regular testing is also advised for sexually active individuals, particularly those with new or multiple partners.
The primary objective of our STI/STD Test Consultation service is to assess symptoms, provide advice, and recommend appropriate tests. The tests themselves are priced separately.
