STD Testing

Regular STD testing is crucial for maintaining sexual health, especially for individuals who are sexually active. 

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be transmitted through various forms of sexual activity, including oral, vaginal, and anal sex, regardless of whether protection is used. 

Given the potential risks associated with intimate encounters, it is strongly advised to make regular STD testing a standard practice. At Regis Medical, we understand the importance of prioritizing sexual well-being. That's why we offer a comprehensive range of accessible and confidential STD testing services in Singapore. Our expert team is dedicated to providing personalized care and support to ensure your peace of mind and the health of both you and your partners. Whether you're seeking routine testing or have specific concerns, our compassionate staff is here to help you every step of the way.

Common STDs in Singapore 

In Singapore, several sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) pose significant health risks, with common infections including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, genital warts, and herpes. These STDs can have varying degrees of severity and may present different challenges for diagnosis and treatment.

It's important to note that while some STDs, like chlamydia and gonorrhoea, may manifest symptoms in some individuals, they can be entirely asymptomatic for the majority of people. This means that individuals may unknowingly carry and transmit these infections without experiencing any noticeable signs or symptoms. As a result, regular testing becomes paramount to detect and treat these infections early, preventing further transmission and potential complications.

Moreover, some STDs, such as syphilis, exhibit different symptoms at different stages of the illness. The initial stage may present with painless sores or ulcers, which can easily go unnoticed or be mistaken for other benign conditions. Without prompt diagnosis and treatment, syphilis can progress to more severe stages, affecting various organs and leading to serious health consequences.

Who should get STD tests 

Regular STD testing offers peace of mind for individuals who are sexually active, particularly those with multiple partners. It's recommended to undergo testing annually if sexually active or whenever engaging with a new partner. This proactive approach ensures early detection and treatment, reducing the risk of complications and transmission.

If you:

  • Had unprotected sex
  • Have STD symptoms such as itching, discharge or pain
  • Believe you had been exposed to individuals carrying STD virus

If you believe you have been exposed to high risk and unprotected sexual exposure in the last 72 hours, there are options available such as Post-Exposure Prophylaxis. Please click here to read more.

Our clinic offers PreP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) initiation and counselling. Please contact us to find out more.
