We always like to remind our clients that not every sexually transmitted infection will have obvious symptoms. In fact many infections such as Hepatitis B, HPV, HIV and Chlamydia can have no symptoms at all, so if you are worried about an exposure, the only way to confirm this will be to have tests to find out whether or not you have contracted the infection.
Because we only treat sexually transmitted infections our doctors and our whole team are dedicated and highly skilled in this area. They will not only help you with test results but also will give you guidance and any help and advice that you need regarding your sexual relationships.
Discover our comprehensive range of STD screenings that have been designed to assess your well-being by testing for specific infections with a blood, urine or swab sample. Our skilled doctors perform a comprehensive range of testing to detect any sexually transmitted infections, whether you have symptoms or not. We deliver accurate results and offer any necessary treatment. Below are some of our most STI test options:
Women are given a swab to test for gonorrhea and chlamydia. You need to insert a small cotton bud into the entrance of your vagina and rotate the swab a few times against the walls of the vagina. We also perform a blood test for syphilis and occasionally hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
Men need to provide a urine sample that will be sent to the laboratory to test for gonorrhea and chlamydia. AT STI Clinic London, we also perform blood tests for HIV, hepatitis B or C and syphilis.
Sexually transmitted infections or STIs are typically spread when you have sexual contact with an infected person. These infections are usually passed from one person to the other at the time of anal, oral or vaginal sex and skin-to-skin contact. STIs may also occur due to an infection of certain types of bacteria that include - chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis or viruses such as - hepatitis B, herpes, human papilloma virus (HPV) and HIV.
Almost 20 million people in the United Kingdom get an STI each year. These infections mainly affect men and women of all backgrounds and economic levels. However, half of the new infections occur among young people who are in the age group of 15 to 24 years.
Women often have serious health problems from STIs when compared to men:
If chlamydia and gonorrhea are not treated on time, then this increases the chances of developing severe pelvic pain and ectopic pregnancy that can be life-threatening. Chlamydia and gonorrhea may even lead to infertility.
If pregnant women do not treat syphilis on time, then this can be the reason for death of infants.
Women have higher risk than men at the time of unprotected vaginal sex. protected anal sex puts women at greater risk for getting an STI than unprotected vaginal sex.
STI can lead to various health problems for women. Certain types of untreated STIs may cause:
Some kinds of STIs make it easy for you to get HIV if you come in close contact with it.
You may get tested for STDs at different STD Clinic near you, community health centres or by attending your family doctor. In London some people prefer walk in clinic for STD check where experienced doctors in a non-judgmental environment will see them.
The right time to test for STIs is when:
Some signs and symptoms that indicate an STI are the following:
Some STIs have symptoms such as itchy bumps, unusual discharge, and pain when you urinate, which can indicate that something is wrong. But, there are many sexually transmitted infections that do not have any symptoms. So, though you may not notice anything different, you could still have a transmissible infection.
To get an STI check, you can visit a local private sexual health clinic. The process usually involves providing a urine sample or self-taken swab for gonorrhea and chlamydia testing. HIV and syphilis testing requires a blood sample. Herpes testing is typically done when sores are present and a swab will be taken. By walk-in our private STI clinic in London, you can undergo the necessary tests.
The answer to this question is yes. Mostly, when you are on your period, this will not affect the test results or your overall experience. However, there are some examples when you would like to rethink about getting tested for STDs while being on your period.
Ask your doctor or nurse if you need to get tested for STIs. They can tell what tests you may need to perform and how they are done. The testing for STIs is also known as STI screening.
Getting tested and treated for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) must be confidential. Most infections can be treated. You may visit private GUM clinic in London to get STI testing and treatment services. Our walk in service allows you to fix an appointment instant, which ensures you do not have to wait for several days to see your doctor.
There is a very thin line difference between the two and that difference is completely technical. An STI (sexually transmitted infection) is an infection and when the infection develops into a disease in its matured stages, it is called an STD or sexually transmitted disease.
Getting tested for STIs can be easy and quick. Depending on what you are testing for, your health care provider may take a blood sample or a swab and ask you to provide a urine sample.
Your doctor may be able to tell if you have an STD. But there are some tests that take a few days for results to come from the lab – Blood tests for HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis all return within 24 hours. At STI Clinic, Urine and Swab tests take a bit longer, as the sample is grown in the lab for bacteria – this can take up to 4 days.
Getting a screening test means detecting an infection that might not have any symptoms. Just like you go for a mammogram or screening for colon cancer, it is important to screen for sexually transmitted infections depending on the risk factor. There are no recommended tests or timings for everyone. These testing usually depend on your lifestyle and risk level.
Some STIs can be treated and fully resolved such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and Ureaplasma while other STIs and blood-borne viruses such as HIV, HPV and Herpes cannot be cured but treated effectively. There are vaccines available for HPV and Hepatitis.
There is no difference, STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease and STI stands for Sexually Transmitted Infection.
Some GP practices or local sexual health (GUM) clinic, contraception clinics, pharmacies, and young people's services may provide testing for some sexually transmitted infections. But not everyone who has an STI will show any symptoms. You need to get checked by visiting STI Clinic London if your sex partner has symptoms even if you do not.
When exposed to sexually transmitted pathogens, women are more likely to get infected than men due to certain biological factors. Also, women have more exposed areas such as the cervix and the vagina, and small tears may occur in the vaginal tissue at the time of intercourse creating an easy pathway for infection.
I found out that my boyfriend was infected with an STI and so I needed to be checked. I was terrified. I was recommended to go to the STI Clinic London for the tests. I went and had the test and then treatment at this clinic. It was not the horrible experience that I thought it would be. The staff were very understanding and kind to me. Thank you!
As somebody who needed regular STI checks, and has had treatment for syphilis, I can recommend this clinic. The treatment is state of the art and the clinic is a nice place to visit. It is fresh and clean and the staffs are great.
I was so I had been looking for a clinic that was affordable for regular STI checks in London. I found this clinic and I am very glad I did. I feel that the checks they do are very thorough and they always give me confidence that I am looking after my sexual health.
I was afraid that someone I had been with had Chlamydia so I went for testing. I was so comforted by the staff in the clinic and thankfully my test came back negative. Great clinic, brilliant staff.
Nobody really wants to have to go to an STI Clinic but if you do find that you have to, this clinic is the best one to go to! I have been visiting for a while for help with managing a recurring thrush condition. The staff are always helpful and kind.
I had been having problems for some time, and did not want to go to my GP about it, as I was embarrassed. I found this clinic through an advert I saw and I thought that being in Harley Street, it was going to be a reputable place. I was right. I was looked after and did not feel the least bit embarrassed. Great place and great staff. I would recommend.
