STIs can be common – yet, because people don’t like to talk about them, they often go untreated.

At Denmark Medical Centre, our doctors treat you with absolute respect and privacy. We’ll work with you to diagnose your condition, and can provide medication to treat Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea at no cost to you.

So if you are at all concerned or think you may have an STI, make an appointment with one of our friendly GPs today.

What are the signs and symptoms of STIs?

Common symptoms of STIs include:

  • Unusual discharge
  • Itchiness around the genital area
  • A burning sensation when peeing
  • A rash, sores or small lumps on or around the genitals
  • Unusual bleeding e.g. after sex or between periods
  • Pain and swelling in the testicles
  • Pain during sex

When should you be tested for STIs?

It’s a good idea to have regular sexual health check-ups once you start having sex and when you change sexual partners. You and your partner should both get tested if you’re planning to stop using condoms, too.

The test is simple, quick and painless – often, all that’s needed is a urine test.
