Sexual Health Awareness Week
All sexually active adults should have regular testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) even without any symptoms. In recent years testing has gotten faster and easeier for patients. Now for patients without any symptoms, all that is needed for a full STI screen is a urine sample and a blood test. This will provide results for common conditions including chlamydia and gonorrhoea, as well as less common but important conditions such as Syphillis, Hepatitis, and HIV.
