STI STD and HIV Testing in Brentwood
In Brentwood, you can be tested for the wide range of sexually transmitted infections. STIs are on the rise across the UK, so it is important to get tested regularly.
We offer testing for infections including HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea that you would find in a GUM clinic. We can also test you for other STIs which are just as common but less well known. These infections include Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, Gardnerella and Trichomonas. These are very common and are sexually transmitted. It is important to test for these bacterial infections as they can cause serious harm to both men and women. These bacteria are associated with a condition known as Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in women which if left untreated can lead to scarred and blocked fallopian tubes and ultimately to infertility. In men, these infections can affect the urethra causing pain and inflammation. Trichomonas can also sometimes infect the Prostate gland. Having one STI means that you are at a higher risk of catching another STI, including HIV.
You can also be tested for the Hepatitis Viruses (A, B and C). If you would like an HPV test or a Smear Test, then we can provider this at our clinics in London.
It is very important to remember that most people do not have symptoms even when they are infected with many of these diseases. That is why medical professionals always advise regular testing for the full range of STI’s for anyone who is sexually active outside a long term monogamous relationship.
You can book your appointment now either on line or by calling our booking team.
