Before you come to our clinic for your appointment you need 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 prior to 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.
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. 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 the treatment for most STI’s
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.
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:
Most STDs can be tested through a simple blood test and urine sample. At private GUM clinic in London, experienced doctors can check for the following STDs:
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.
At Medical Express Clinic, we offer testing for all primary STDs including:
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.
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. Practicing safe sex remains the most effective way to prevent contracting an STI.
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.
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. If you're seeking STI testing in London, consider Medical Express Clinic as your primary destination.
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.
If you choose a package, you will get to 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.
If you need an STD or STI test, you have options: visit an STD Clinic in London, consult your primary care facility, or take certain tests at home. Given the nature of these diseases, we strongly recommend consulting a professional if you suspect you've contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
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.
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.
