STI and HIV Testing in Thurrock
Early diagnosis and treatment for sexually transmitted infections is extremely important for STI prevention and management. Many people believe they are not at risk of catching an STI. However, any sexually active individual should be aware of their status and receive regular sexual health screening.
Most STIs show few or no symptoms, particularly in the early stages of infection. This means that you may not know that you have been infected, or you might overlook symptoms in hope that they will pass. If you do experience any signs of an STI, they can include:
- Pain when urinating
- Unusual discharge from vagina or penis
- Abnormal bleeding
- Genital or anal discomfort
- Itching, swelling or redness around genital or anal areas
- Ulcers, sores, lesions or blisters
- Lower abdominal pain
- An increased need to urinate more frequently
An untreated infection could cause the development of health complications such as infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, epididymitis and some cancers are also linked to sexually transmitted infections. If you test positive for an STI, Better2Know can help you access the treatment you need. Private doctor’s consultations are available. Your Better2Know doctor will discuss your results in more detail, before prescribing the medication you need to treat your condition. Better2Know can also refer you to a specialist who can offer further support and advice.
