Sexual Health Screening

A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that can be passed from person to person when having unprotected sex. You can get an STI by having vaginal sex, anal sex, or oral sex. Many people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) don’t get symptoms; therefore it is important to get tested if you have unprotected sex even if you do not have any symptoms. The earlier you’re tested; the sooner treatment can be given if it’s needed.

The commonest STIs in the UK are anogenital warts, Chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhoea, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B, hepatitis C, pubic lice, syphilis and trichomonas. STIs can pass between men and women and from women to women and men to men.

HIV Testing and STI Screening
If you are sexually active, worried about HIV or other STIs and want peace of mind, we strongly recommend you get a Full STI screen or an HIV test. These STI screens include tests for many sexually transmitted diseases and results are available quickly. In most cases, a Full STI screen is sufficient but if there are visible lesions or warts on your genitals, mouth or anus, you should consider tests for Herpes, Syphilis and Genital Warts, available through our Blemish Screen.

There are three basic kinds of HIV tests depending on when you may have been exposed. There is a 28 day HIV test (for exposure at least 28 days before your HIV test), and Instant HIV test (for exposure at least 26 days before your HIV test) and a 10 day HIV test (for exposure 10 days before your HIV test – this test is only available as part of the Early Detection Screen). If you want an HIV test, please refer to the table above.

If you need an HIV test certificate for a visa or work, we can provide you with one.

How fast and how long does the effect of Botox® Glasgow last?
The effects of injection with botulinum toxin are usually visible within 48-72 hours. The maximum effects of treatment will be visible within 1-2 weeks and generally last from 2-6 months, depending on the age of the patient, their skin and muscle tone, and their previous usage of botulinum toxin.
Combined Screens, Individual Tests and Vaccines
You can choose your own combination of any of our STD or STI screens and tests including HIV tests.  If you require one particular STI test we will be able to do this for you as an individual test. To book a screen, test or vaccination please call our friendly booking team on  0141 356 6969.
