Before your appointment

Before you come to our clinic for your appointment you need to be aware that, you will need to share details of your sexual experience so that the right advice can be given. It is a good idea to get in touch so that you know of anything specific you need to do in advance, most commonly to refrain from passing urine for 3 hours before your appointment. Also jot down any symptoms you have, even something that may seem unrelated. Bring with you a list of any medication and supplements or vitamins that you're taking and write down any questions that you might think you want to ask when you see the doctor.

Sexual Health FAQs

What is a Sexual Health or GUM Clinic?

If you need to be treated or tested for a sexually transmitted infection (an STI) the process will be straightforward and all of your details will always be kept confidential. Another thing you need to know is that most infections of this type can be cured. A genitourinary medicine clinic, also known as a GUM clinic or a clinic that provides sexual health services will be able to conduct the necessary tests and treatment for most STIs.

What is an STI?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STDs) or venereal diseases (VD), are infections that are spread by sexual activity - typically vaginal, anal and oral sex. Frequently, STIs initially are symptomless, which is why it is important to get screened regularly.

What are some symptoms of STDs?

  • Thick blood discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Burning sensation or several pain at the time of
  • urinating
  • Bleeding between periods or Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Swollen and painful testicles
  • Anal itching
  • Painful bowel movements

How you can prevent STD infection

The only way to ensure that you never catch an STI or an STD is to have no sexual contact. Given that for most, this is not a very practical option, there are ways to minimise your risk of contracting a sexual disease:

  • When you meet a new partner, discuss your sexual history openly before engaging in sexual activity.
  • Have regular STI and STD tests, especially if you have changed sexual partners or have multiple sexual partners. You should ask any new sexual partner to undergo screening as well.
  • Use protection with a condom during vaginal, oral or anal sex.
  • You could consider being vaccinated against Hepatitis B and HPV.
  • If you think you are at higher risk of contracting HIV, you could consider taking the medication PrEP.

Can an STD be detected from a blood test?

Most STDs can be tested through a simple blood test and urine sample. At our sexual health clinic in London, experienced doctors can check for the following STDs:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Mycoplasma Genitalium
  • Syphilis
  • Herpes
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis

In some cases, blood tests aren’t as accurate as other forms of testing. It may also take a month or longer after being exposed to certain STIs for blood tests to be reliable. For example, if HIV is contracted, it can take up to 28 days to a few months for tests to detect the infection.

Which STD Tests do you offer?

At Medical Express Clinic, we offer testing for all primary STDs including:

  • Gonorrhoea
  • Chlamydia
  • Hepatitis B (HBV)
  • Hepatitis C (HCV)
  • Syphilis
  • HIV
  • Herpes
  • Gardnerella
  • Mycoplasma
  • Ureaplasma
  • Trichomonas

When the results of your STD tests are in then they will be emailed to the same email address with which you have booked. If you want us to, we can let your sexual health advisor know the results of your test so that they can help you going forward.

What is the best way to protect against STIs?

The best way to protect against contracting or transmitting an STI is to use protection every time you have sex. Remember that having an STI once does not grant immunity; you can contract the same infection again. While no one wants to believe they have an STI, seeking treatment from a reputable STD testing clinic early provides the best chance of a swift recovery. Practising safe sex remains the most effective way to prevent contracting an STI.

Can you visit your GP for STI testing in London?

If you suspect you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI), you should visit your nearest GP or local sexual health clinic. Most STIs can be treated successfully, but it's essential to get any symptoms checked promptly.

How soon will I get my STI testing results?

We strive to ensure our tests are processed swiftly to alleviate your concerns. Many results are available within six hours. All our tests are discreet and fast. When you are looking for a private clinic for std testing then Medical Express Clinic should be your first port of call.

Are all STD tests offered at the Medical Express Clinic?

Medical Express Clinic offers a range of STD tests. All the major tests for common sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV or Chlamydia, are available, along with many others.

Will I need to see a GP before my sexual health test?

If you choose a package, you will get to see a GP for a detailed consultation, examination and treatment if required. However, for those attending on a self-request basis, we will send your results directly. For patients with symptoms, we strongly recommend booking a package so a doctor can assess you and order the most relevant tests based on your history, examination findings, and present symptoms.

Is there a centre for an STD Test near me?

If you need to have a test for an STD or an STI in London, you will have the option to visit a sexual health clinic, go to your primary care facility or conduct some tests at home. Due to the nature of this kind of disease, we always recommend seeing a professional if you are concerned about contracting a sexually transmitted disease.

What happens during a Sexual Health appointment?

At the sexual health clinic, you'll initially discuss your concerns with experts. Then, you'll be asked about your sexual history and other health-related details. Honesty is crucial, as it helps the doctor make the most informed decisions. You'll also have the opportunity to discuss any test results with qualified and experienced sexual health doctors.

Most bacterial STIs, like Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia, can be cured with antibiotics. However, viral infections, such as herpes, can be managed and treated to minimise symptoms and prevent further transmission.

How do I book a same-day STD testing in London?

Receiving same-day STD testing results is immensely beneficial. As STDs and STIs can be easily transmitted, knowing your status is vital to inform any potential partners. While many of our tests have a same-day turnaround, some may not. You'll be notified if your test falls into the latter category. To book an appointment or for any inquiries, call us today at 02074991991.
