STI Screening

At Saffron & Blue Medical Clinic we provide full and comprehensive screening tests for STI’s. Specifically we test for HIV, Hepatitis, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia. Screening will involve the taking of a urine sample to test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, and a blood sample to test for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and C. A male or female doctor is available on request.

A STI is an infection that is contracted from one person to another through sexual intercourse (vaginal, oral or anal). Sexually transmitted infections are often silent and without symptoms especially in males. Left untreated these infections can be serious. Screening offers peace of mind and appropriate treatment options if necessary. Depending on diagnosis the treatment is often a simple course of antibiotics to clear the infection and prevent it from spreading.

The symptoms of an STI can include: Itching in the pubic/genital area, pelvic pain, vaginal/penile discharge, pain on passing urine/other urinary symptoms, genital lumps, genital sores or ulcers.
