Sex is a great (and important) part of our overall mental and physical health & wellbeing. Whether you have multiple partners or are in a monogamous relationship, same sex, hetero or otherwise, you want to make sure your sex life is as good as it can be; free from infection, comfortable and pleasurable.
Many people who have an STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infection) do not develop any symptoms. At Milsons Point Medical Centre, all of our doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating STIs.
A sexual health screen can check for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis A, B and C.
Do you have symptoms that you’re worried about OR perhaps got ‘lost in the moment’ with a partner you’re not sure about?
We can help with screenings, diagnosis and treatment, while giving you a clear explanation of what it all means.
Sexually transmitted infections are passed through skin to skin contact, some across mucosal membranes such as mouth, rectum ,vagina, and some through bodily fluids.
Depending on what kind of sex you have, and who you have sex with, there will be a variable risk of you having been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection.
For heterosexuals, regular STIs are advised depending on the number of sexual partners you have and whether you use condoms properly. For men who have sex with men, an STI screen is recommended every 3-12 months depending on the number of sexual partners you have.
