That is why we recommend STI screening as a precautionary measure for the wellbeing of yourself and your partner.

STIs are infections that are spread from person to person during various forms of bodily contact, such as sex. 

STIs are able to infect individuals in many forms, such as bacteria, viruses and even parasites; for example as pubic lice. STIs that are found on the body, sometimes in the form of genital warts are herpes, and are able to spread via skin-to-skin contact. 

In addition to this, they are also found in blood and bodily fluids like semen and vaginal fluids, therefore an STI can also be passed to a baby from a mother during pregnancy, at the time of the delivery as well as through breastfeeding.

The use of needles and equipment during tattooing, body piercing or injection drug use can also be an aid in spreading an infection if they aren’t sufficiently cleaned.

Book an appointment for an STI screening with us, if you think that you are experiencing any of the following common symptoms:

In men, the most commonly reported symptoms of STI are:

  • Testicular pain
  • A sensation of burning when urinating
  • Swollen testicles
  • Stinging, tingling, soreness or any discomfort on the tip of the penis
  • Pus released from the tip of the penis
  • Lumps in the pubic area, genital area or around the anus
  • sores, ulcers, scratches, rash or blisters on the penis, genital area, or around the anus

In women, the most commonly reported symptoms of STI are:

  • A sensation of burning when urinating
  • An unusual vaginal discharge
  • Pain in the lower abdominal 
  • Bleeding after sexual intercourse or inbetween periods
  • General itching or soreness
  • sores, ulcers, scratches, a rash or blisters in the genital area, or around the anus
  • lumps in the pubic area, genital area or around the anus

If you do have any of these symptoms, there is no need to worry as all STIs are manageable. You should however, book an appointment to be screened as soon as possible and begin treatment, if necessary.

It is advised to get checked as soon as possible if you think that you may have contracted an STI. 

To find out exactly which STI you may have, and how to undergo treatment, we recommend that you see your GP or book an appointment with a Local PCR clinic in your area to avoid excessive wait times.

If you are sexually active, It’s best practice for the safety of yourself and others to get tested for STIs every year – even if you feel as though you are not experiencing any symptoms, as some STIs do not carry any signs.

Yourself and your partner may also wish to go for STI testing if you are about to start a new relationship.

Most STIs can be cured, however, some may require long term treatment.

This depends on the type and severity of the STI that is contracted.

If you suspect that you may have an STI, or have engaged in sexual activity and would like to get checked, we recommend visiting your Local PCR clinic for your peace of mind.

Yes, certain STIs can cause infertility if left unchecked. Chlamydia and gonorrhoea especially can cause scarring and pelvic inflammatory disease. They often have no symptoms so many people do not realise that they have them.

If you are sexually active, you should consider being tested for STIs.

Spots around your genital area may be a reaction to a change in sanitary items such as soap, body wash, washing powder; from shaving and waxing; or even the material of your underwear.

There is however a chance that these spots are genital warts, otherwise known as molluscum contagiosum.

If you suspect that you have any symptoms of an STI, such as spots on your genital area, we recommend that you book an appointment at a Local PCR clinic in order to be sure.

Chlamydia is recognised as likely to be the most common of all STIs.

Due to the fact that not all cases of chlamydia express symptoms, it’s not possible to know how many people are carrying an infection.

This is shortly followed by the Human Papilloma Virus, where only 13% of those infected experience symptoms such as genital warts.
