What is this test?

A sexual health blood test detects sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like Syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis B, and C. Syphilis and HIV blood tests are used for screening purposes, while the early diagnosis of HIV allows for timely medical intervention, initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), and appropriate counseling and support. Hepatitis B and C blood tests are used to detect the presence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the bloodstream.

Sexual Health Screening

Regular STI blood tests are important for sexually active individuals and those with multiple partners. Screening identifies asymptomatic infections for early treatment.

New Sexual Partner

When starting a new sexual relationship or if you have had unprotected sex with a new partner, it is recommended to undergo STI blood tests. This helps ensure both you and your partner's sexual health and can prevent the transmission of infections.

Signs & Symptoms

If you experience any symptoms of STIs, such as unusual discharge, sores, pain while urinating, itching, or pelvic pain, get tested. Not all STIs show symptoms, so it's important to get regular screenings.

Previous STI Diagnosis

If you have had an STI before, it's important to get regular blood tests to monitor your infection status and ensure treatment is effective.

Pregnancy Planning

It may be recommended to do an STI blood test if you're planning to conceive or are pregnant. Some STIs can be transmitted to your child during pregnancy or childbirth. Early detection and treatment can protect you and your baby.

Partner's Request

Prioritise open communication and mutual STI testing with your partner to ensure trust and well-being.
