Package for sexually transmitted infections
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are diseases which can be transmitted via sexual contact. Many STIs have no symptoms. People often carry and transmit pathogens (bacteria, viral particles, fungi, parasites) without knowing. In general, STIs can be divided into infections which cause genital lesions (syphilis, genital herpes), infections which cause genital inflammation (chlamydiosis, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea, etc.), and infections which cause systemic symptoms (HIV infection) or disorders of the internal organs (hepatitis B).
It is a good idea to get yourself tested if you have no symptoms but have had unprotected intercourse or have nagging suspicions if only to restore your peace of mind. Any symptoms attributable to an STI should be cause for immediate testing. Standard test packages are not enough if you suspect an STI. We definitely recommend a consultation with a doctor. Consultation combined with testing provides certainty and effective treatment, if necessary.
We suggest not urinating 2-3 hours before coming in for testing, women can be tested only before or after menses.
The package includes consultation with a doctor and tests for the following infections:
- gonorrhea (clap)
If the doctor has any suspicions, they may recommend additional tests for these diseases:
- genital herpes
- hepatitis B
- human papillomavirus (HPV) infection
- mycoplasmosis (Mycoplasma genitalium)
