STI STD and HIV Testing in Grimsby
Unlike many other infections, Sexually Transmitted Infections often show no symptoms. This fact makes them particularly dangerous as they are common, and can be silent even while causing significant and potentially long term harm to our bodies. Some of the most common infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are widespread and will, if left undetected damage the reproductive systems of both men and women. Infection by Chlamydia, or any of the other common STI’s such as Trichomonas, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma and Gardnerella can lead to a condition called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in women which is directly associated with damage to fallopian tubes, reduced fertility or even infertility.
Sexually Transmitted Infections such as HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphilis are also worryingly common and in some communities are on the rise. Across the UK, it is estimated that up to 25% of people infected with the HIV virus don’t know that they have it. HIV infection, if left untreated, will progress to the condition known as AIDS or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome putting the person’s life at significant risk. Fortunately in the case of HIV, whilst still a very serious infection, if detected early and appropriate treatment initiated the life expectancy of the individual is now expected to be normal.
