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.
Screening for immunity against Rubella. It is advised for women to be protected against Rubella before pregnancy. If a pregnant woman contracts Rubella, particularly in her first trimester, the virus can cause foetal death or congenital or birth defects known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS). Rubella during pregnancy is the most common cause of congenital deafness.
