STI consultation

Helping to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections.

Early detection can effectively and successfully treat STIs

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that can be passed through sexual activity and sometimes during childbirth.

When STIs are treated early, you can prevent many of the negative outcomes of STIs, including infertility in both men and women. Testing and treatment is important for sexually active people and for pregnant women.

There are many different types of STIs. Some of these have symptoms, while others do not. Some symptoms may take longer to appear. If you have an STI but have no symptoms, you could still pass the STI on to other sexual partners.

Common symptoms

Many people often don't notice symptoms when they have an STI.

Left untreated, STIs can affect your health. If you have any of the symptoms listed below, we recommend getting tested as soon as possible.

 

In women and men: 

  • Pain when you urinate
  • Itching, burning or tingling around the genitals 
  • Blisters, sores, spots or lumps around the genitals or anus
  • Black powder or tiny white dots in your underwear – this could be droppings or eggs from pubic lice.

 In women: 

  • Yellow or green vaginal discharge
  • Discharge that smells
  • Bleeding between periods or after sex
  • Pain during sex
  • Lower abdominal pain.

In men: 

  • Discharge from the penis
  • Irritation of the urethra (the tube urine comes out of).

These symptoms may also be because of other reproductive health issues, not just STIs. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is best that you come for a consultation so we can help to identify and treat the problem.
