STD Screening

There are a number of serological test types including for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) / sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) / venereal diseases (VDs) as well as for Rubella as part of our Pre-Marital Health Check. Testing for chlamydia, herpes, HIV, gonorrhea and syphilis is offered. Testing for STDs is advised for all sexually active adults, particularly as a number of STDs have few or no symptoms.

RPR / VDRL
STD Screening

VDRL (Venereal Disease Research Laboratory) blood test for syphilis. Syphilis is caused by bacteria. Screening is advised for sexually active individuals, particularly those engaging in higher-risk activities including unprotected sex. The Treponema pallidum bacteria infect by penetrating into the lining of the mouth or genital area. Syphilis develops in a number of stages and the symptoms can vary dependent on the stage, with some symptoms seemingly minor and hardly noticeable. If left untreated, syphilis can lead to neurological and cardiovascular problems as well as complications in pregnancy and childbirth.

Chlamydia + Gonorrhea DNA (Urine)
STD Screening

Urine analysis for Chlamydia Trachomatis DNA (chlamydia). Caused by bacteria, chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD). Both males and females can contract chlamydia with it most prevalent in young females. Chlamydia does have symptoms, including genital pain and discharge, however, many persons may never develop them. According to studies, up to 80% of women and 25% of infected men are asymptomatic - showing no symptoms. If left untreated chlamydia can lead to some very serious health problems (particularly in women) with possible outcomes including chronic pelvic pain, pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy (when the fertilised egg attaches itself in a place other than inside the uterus), or infertility and testiculitis among other conditions. Those with chlamydia are also at an increased risk of HIV infection.

HIV I & II Antibody
