What to do if you suspect you have an STI

Sexually transmitted infections are actually very common. If you are sexually active, then you should ideally be tested for infection every year or with every new partner. There are some symptoms that you can look out for which may be indicative of a sexually transmitted infection but often, infections can be symptomless and therefore, it is important to do this for your own piece of mind but also to avoid spreading any infection. Just because you do not feel unwell and can go about your day to day life quite normally, it does not mean that you may not have been infected.

Although it may be embarrassing to discuss, it is important to be responsible about your sexual health with regular checks and that any fears about contracting an STI are addressed because there can be serious consequences of ignoring an STI.

If you have concerns and think that you may have a sexually transmitted infection, then the chances are that you will want to know as soon as possible to try and alleviate your fears. You will want an STD test and want to know the results as soon as you possibly can.

Perhaps going to your local doctor is not an option and you would rather go to a private clinic for confidentiality and a faster response. Opting for a private clinic can be very convenient, meaning no waiting times and that you receive an appointment on the day that you phone, or within 24 hours, as well as quick results and total confidentiality.

Here at Same Day Doctor, we offer this kind of service to ensure that regular or one off patient receives a fast and efficient service in order to make sure that any concerns that you might have regarding your sexual health, are addressed and that you receive any treatment you require as soon as possible.
