Frequently (Un)answered Questions
If you’ve ever had unprotected sex, or had something go wrong during sex like a burst condom, then you should get tested. You may not have any symptoms, but even if it was a while ago you should still get checked.
No! Many STIs are “silent” infections. STIs can lead to complications like infertility if undiagnosed. Get tested even if you don’t any symptoms.
It is important to realize that it can take weeks from the time of exposure and possible infection until symptoms occur and the diagnostic tests turn positive. So for example, if you had unprotected sex on Saturday and get tested on Monday, regardless of your test results, it is important to be re-tested in approximately 6-8 weeks even if you don’t develop symptoms.
All sexually active people should get tested annually. More frequent testing is recommended depending on individual risk behaviour (for example multiple sex partners) and if there is high prevalence of STIs where you live.
Yes absolutely! Our test panels are designed for universal use. Even though we’re called Proactive For Her, in a sexual relationship, it is important for both partners to get tested.
All STIs are treatable! If you test positive, you will be given a free consultation with a Sexual Health specialist . Your doctor will take care of the management of your condition and prescribe medication if required. They will also advice you on follow-up and retesting.
No.They are most effective against STIs which are transmitted through bodily fluids, for example against HIV, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Some STIs like herpes and syphilis are spread via skin-to-skin contact. If a condom does not cover the infected area, then it cannot offer protection from these STIs.
Absolutely not, enough time may not have passed from exposure to give you fully reliable results. Continue using condoms especially if you have multiple sex partners. Couples in a newly monogamous relationship can re-test in 6-8 weeks and then stop using condoms if they test negative for the 2nd time.
Absolutely yes. If you test positive you must inform your current and past partners. It’s the right thing to do. Informing a past or current partner gives that person the chance to get tested and, if needed, treated.
This panel only tests for the most common and asymptomatic STIs. HPV infections are diagnosed by a doctor by obtaining cells from the cervix in a gynaecological examination. Not all types of HPV are dangerous. Only the high-risk types are associated with cervical cancer. We encourage vaccination and regular PAP smearsfor cervical cancer prevention.
Yes, you can get reinfected for infections such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis if you once again contract the bacteria causing these infections. It is therefore recommended to always practice safe sex to avoid any reocurrence.
