STI STD and HIV Tests in Leicester
Amongst the most common STIs in Leicester are Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. The infection rates of both of these are increasing. Some of the viral STIs are also increasing in frequency, including Herpes Simplex, (the cause of sores and blisters around the mouth and the genitals) .
Other infections to be aware of include Ureaplasma and Gardnerella, which are very common but can under certain circumstances lead to a condition called Bacterial Vaginosis. You should also be concerned about Trichomonas and Mycoplasma infections. These are very common STIs, but are rarely mentioned in the media. These bacterial infections can, if left untreated, lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) as serious condition that requires immediate medical attention and can also have a long term negative effect on both male and female fertility.
If you are considering getting tested for STIs, think about the full range of possible infections which can also include Hepatitis B and C. These viral infections can damage the liver and can cause long term harm
HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is passed on by sexual intercourse (vaginal, anal and less commonly orally). You can choose our Early Detection Screen for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C which allows you to get tested only 10 days after the date of possible exposure.
