Sexual Health Week

September 11th-17th is Sexual Health Week 

Sexual Health is a very important part of our lives, impacting on our wider physical and emotional well-being. In our relationships it is also important to act responsibly and with care – and to reduce the risk of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

More than one million sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are acquired every day worldwide, the majority of which are asymptomatic. STIs are on the increase, and many show very little to no symptoms.

We want to break the stigma on sexual health testing. Regular testing is what keeps us safe and prevents STI’s spreading. Regular screening can aid in detecting an infection in the early stages and help to reduce the risk of further complications.

Gonorrhoea and Syphilis, which are two of the most common STIs are increasing at alarming rates.

Usually treated easily with antibiotics, many STIs can cause serious health issues if left untreated. Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea can cause infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease, while syphilis can cause serious, irreversible, and potentially life-threatening problems with your brain, heart, or nerves. Sexually transmitted infections are on the increase, many of which present little to no active symptoms.

A Randox Health spokesperson said: ” The screenings we provide are a complete STI screen which discreetly screens for 14 common STIs including HIV, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and take control of your sexual health with a complete STI screen which is available in clinic.

“We also offer a Blood Borne STI screen – where you can test for four common blood borne pathogens including HIV and Hepatitis from a sample blood sample. This specific test is highly recommended for pre-IVF treatment.” They added.

“Lastly we offer a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Test. With this you can discreetly screen for ten common sexually transmitted infections. This screening service is also available to anyone who has mild or no STI symptoms and would like to get themselves checked and is also available Inclinic.”

“Our easy to interpret test report will provide a breakdown of your results, what they mean and the next steps. Reports will be sent to the email address provided at the time of your registration.”
