STIs on the rise

Testing and treatment of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

Looking after your sexual health can have a positive impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing, and that is why it is so important to test yourself regularly for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Following the relaxation of COVID restrictions, rates of STIs including chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are rising across the UK and Ireland.  Some infections can cause genital symptoms such as urethral and vaginal discharge, and pain when passing urine.  They can also cause non-genital symptoms such as rashes, swollen lymph nodes and flu-like symptoms.  In many cases, patients with an STI may have no symptoms at all, so if think you may have been at risk we would advise you to think about having a test.

STIs can have significant consequences and complications, so early diagnosis and treatment is paramount, both for your personal health and to prevent onward spread. 

At Northwell Medical, we will ensure that you have access to a comprehensive range of testing and treatment for all STIs, in a safe and discreet environment.  Testing is very quick and straightforward, with rapid results available.  Should treatment be required, this will be advised and provided promptly, to give you absolute peace of mind.
