STI/STD Check Ups

It is sensible to have regular sexual health check-ups once you become sexually active and when you change sexual partners. Having a check-up is simple, quick, painless and needn’t be expensive. Don’t be embarrassed to discuss your concerns with any of our Doctors at Parkhill Medical Centre.  STI (also known as STD) check-ups are your opportunity to safeguard your future health.

Common symptoms of STI’s, when present, include:

  • Itchiness around the genital area
  • A burning sensation when peeing
  • Unusual discharge
  • Pain during sex
  • Unusual bleeding eg: after sex or between periods
  • A rash, sores or small lumps on or around the genitals
  • Pain or swelling in the testicles

What to do if you are diagnosed with an STI/STD:

  • Avoid sex until the STI/STD has been treated and has gone away
  • Always use condoms if you have sex
  • Make sure your partner is checked out and cleared of infection before you have sex again
