Description

HIV 1 & 2


HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that damages the immune system and affects the body's ability to fight everyday infections. It is transmitted within the blood and can be passed on through unprotected anal and vaginal sex. HIV cannot be cured through medication and infected individuals will carry the virus for life. Thankfully those living with the virus can lead a completely normal life by taking daily medication that keeps it under control.




Hepatitis B


Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver. It is spread through the transfer of blood and bodily fluids, including through unprotected sex. It is less common in the UK when compared to other countries, but you are at risk if you have unprotected sex with someone carrying the virus. For many people, Hepatitis B has a lifelong impact and you may never fully be cured. We can also offer Hepatitis B vaccination (Click here).




Hepatitis C


Hepatitis C is a virus that affects the liver. It is passed on through the transfer of blood, including during sex. It's usually possible to cure the infection and most people will have a normal life expectancy. Unfortunately it rarely shows symptoms until the liver is significantly damaged, which is why testing following unprotected sex is so important.




Syphilis


This infection regularly shows no symptoms. Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected sex with an infected individual. It's important to test for the condition if you believe you have come in contact with it as it can have a long term impact on your health. Symptoms can include a painless sore or ulcer on the penis or vagina, along with other rashes affecting different areas of the body. Many people will notice no symptoms or the symptoms may be so mild that they pass unnoticed.
