At Turloughmore Health Centre we offer Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s).
If you have had unprotected intercourse then you are at risk of STI’s.
Many people who have an STI do not have any symptoms and therefore are unaware that they have one.
If left untreated some STI’s can cause long-term problems such as infertility.
It is advisable to have a regular sexual health check-up once you start having sex or change partners.
A simple swab can be used in STI tests for Chlamydia or Gonorrhea.
Blood tests are used to check for HIV, Hepatitis B & C and Syphilis.
If you test positive for an STI we can provide treatment, sometimes with medication and specialist referral if needed.
Both male and female doctors are available for consultation and the service is carried out in a confidential, non judgmental manner.
