Sexually Transmitted Infections

What are they?
Infections that can be passed from one person to another either during unprotected penetrative sex, oral sex or through close contact with the genital area.

Some of the most common STI’s are: Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Trichomonas, Pubic Lice, Genital Warts, Hepatitis B, Herpes and HIV.

How do you know if you have an infection?
There are many different symptoms which may include pain when passing urine or pain during sexual intercourse, an unusual discharge, a rash or painful sores around the genital area.

It is important to note that some STI’s have no symptoms. Most STI’s are easy to treat so if you have any worries make an appointment with the Nurse and attend the surgery for a check up.

If you have unprotected sex with someone it is wise to have a check up just in case. Unfortunately a few STI’s can have very serious consequences if left untreated e.g. Chlamydia can lead to infertility.

Ask at Reception for details.
