STD/STI and HIV are somewhat taboo areas that many prefer to ignore but there is no shame in being cautious with your health. In fact those that screen often will experience fewer long term problems.
HIV screening is an important part of overall health screening. HIV often has no symptoms making it difficult to spot clinically. Testing is often the only way to know for sure. We cover a wide range of screening services, from finger prick, oral, blood and lab test, starting from an affordable rate of $45 for a simple test to more elaborate screening services.
Sexually Transmitted Disease/Infection (STD/STI) Screening
STDs/STIs are diseases passed on through sexual contact, be that vaginal, anal or oral sex. Symptoms can help to identify an infection but lack of symptoms is often misleading.
STDs can be screened through a collection of blood, urine and swab samples depending on location of a potential infection. Screening itself is largely pain-free and can be performed quickly. The only wait is approximately 1 week for the results to return from the laboratory.
It is important to note that not everyone experiences symptoms when they have an STD meaning that some may go undetected if they base their screening purely on symptoms. This is the reason why easily curable infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are often missed and not treated leading to ongoing infections rates worldwide. Screening tests are the only way to know if an infection is present.
