Discreet Screening

What’s the process, what happens?

We provide a discreet Sexual Health service to allow a check for the 6 most common STI’s using a simple home sample kit.

Allowing you to get piece of mind, without a visit to a GP.

STI’s affects around 50% of sexually active individuals. Some organisms are present in (almost) everyone’s urinary tract in small quantities. However, in higher quantities, it can cause an infection which can be transmitted sexually.

Did you know?

In immune-compromised individuals, rarer symptoms can present, such as joint pain and respiratory problems.

STIs are normally transmitted due to unprotected sex. Practicing safer sex can drastically reduce your risk; however, it isn’t foolproof protection!

They can be transmitted by vaginal, anal, or oral sex, through sharing sex toys that have not been washed, or by infected semen or vaginal fluid getting into the eyes.

Don’t pass it on

Most people experience NO symptoms, the only way to be sure is to get tested regularly.

Infected mothers can also pass onto the unborn baby.

Our checks test for:

Chlamydia trachomatis

Also called Chlamydia, is one of the most common STI’s in the UK. It can often have no symptoms and therefore, go undetected. When it does cause symptoms, it can cause unusual discharge, painful urination, or other serious health risks.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae

Also called Gonorrhoea, is second most common STI in the UK, which has an estimated global annual incidence of 86.9 million adults. It can also show no symptoms, therefore going undetected. When it does cause symptoms, it can cause unusual (yellow-green) discharge, painful urination, or bleeding between periods for women.

Mycoplasma genitalium (STI superbug)

 This is different from other STI’s, if the natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It is the latest STI “superbug” and can often coincide with Chlamydia infections, showing pelvic, genital or bladder symptoms.

Trichomonas vaginalis

This is a very common STI caused by a tiny parasite instead of a bacterium. Symptoms can take up to 1 month to show after infection, including abnormal vaginal discharge, soreness/itchiness around genitalia, pain/discomfort while passing urine/ejactulation.

Ureaplasma urealyticum

Organisms commonly found in 70% of the urogenital tracts of men and women; however, if this natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It can lead to complications during pregnancy and with the newborn.

Mycoplasma hominis

Organisms that can be commonly found in the urogenital tracts of men and women; however, if this natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It can lead to complications during pregnancy and with the newborn.
