What the tests involve:
Sexual health can be a sensitive subject to talk about for many people. At HarleyStreetGP, our friendly and relaxed staff will instantly put you at your ease. Dr. Malik has specialised in sexual health matters for many years and has considerable experience in both private practice and within the NHS. At our clinic we understand that some clients will prefer to remain anonymous, in which case you can withhold your real name. It is not necessary to reveal addresses or phone numbers and results do not need to be relayed to your GP or placed on your medical record.
As many sexually transmitted diseases do not always have symptoms, it is important that you have a check-up if you think you may be at risk. If left untreated, STDs can lead to a range of complications, from infertility to organ failure. Tests can easily be undertaken via a simple urine or blood sample and, depending on which package you choose, you can have the results in as little as 60 seconds.
Tests for STDs can be carried out quickly and easily by providing either a urine or blood sample. The requirements for each test vary depending on the infection which is being tested; most results are available within 4 hours, and no longer than 2-3 days if awaiting the outcome of a swab test.
Diagnosis can often be suggested as a result of the history and examination of the patient; so even if you need to wait a few days until results are received, treatment can often be started immediately. At HarleyStreetGP, we are able to prescribe and dispense a number of antibiotic treatments, so you can avoid having to spend further time at a chemist.
