Sexually Transmitted Diseases Detection Package

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are sexually transmitted infections. A very large proportion of STDs are asymptomatic. People often carry and spread pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites) unsuspectingly. In general, there are diseases that cause ulcers in the genitals (syphilis, genital herpes) and inflammatory diseases (chlamydia, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea, etc.) and diseases that are sexually transmitted but cause general illness (HIV infection) or visceral diseases (hepatitis B).

For peace of mind, it is a good idea to have yourself tested even if you are feeling well but have had casual sexual intercourse or you are worried about your health. However, we recommend that you be tested immediately if you develop any signs of a disease that indicate the possibility of STDs. If a sexually transmitted disease is suspected, standard tests alone are not sufficient. We definitely recommend coming to a physician’s consultation. A physician’s consultation combined with tests will provide peace of mind and, if necessary, correct and effective treatment.

It is recommended not to urinate 4 to 6 hours before the appointment, and women are advised to come to the appointment before or after menstruation.

The STD package includes tests for the following diseases:

  • chlamydia (C. trachomatis and C. trachomatis LGV)
  • trichomoniasis
  • gonorrhoea (tripper)
  • mycoplasmosis (M.genitalium)
  • syphilis
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B

If necessary, your physician may recommend further tests for genital herpes, hepatitis B and papilloma virus (HPV infection).

We recommend taking the STD test if:

  • you have multiple sexual partners;
  • your partner has been diagnosed with an STD;
  • you have had unprotected sex with a new or casual sexual partner;
  • you are starting a new sexual relationship;
  • you are planning to become pregnant or have recently become pregnant. STDs are transmitted from the mother to the baby during pregnancy or labour. The result may be a miscarriage or infection of the newborn with all the resulting complications;
  • you suspect an STD – you have blisters or ulcers, pain when urinating, discharge from the rectum, etc. In women, vaginal discharge increases, changes in nature or is accompanied by a bad smell, bleeding during intercourse. In men, there is pain in the urethra or blisters or ulcers in the genital area.

How is the test performed?

  • In men, a urine sample and a venous blood test are taken for testing and, in women, a gynaecological examination is performed.
  • For a urine sample, it is a good idea to collect the urine in the morning after waking up or collect the urine 4 to 6 hours after the last urination during the day.
  • Disposable cups for urine samples are available in pharmacies. Urine samples are not accepted in other containers because they are not sterile enough.
  • Urinate the first part of the urine stream directly into the sample cup, as transfusion of the urine sample is not accepted.
  • A urine sample can also be collected at our clinic (we can provide a urine cup on site).
