Vaginosis Bacterial Infection Test in London

Vaginosis Bacterial infection testing can detect sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) caused by bacteria. These STDs include ureaplasma, mycoplasma, gonorrhoea and chlamydia

Having unprotected sex can result in an STD infection, and some STDs do not show symptoms. This makes it difficult to know if you have any STD and unknowingly transmit it to others.

Do I need a Sexually Transmitted Infection Test?

If you had unprotected sex (sex without using a condom), you need an STI test, especially if you have several sex partners. You should also undergo STI testing if you have a new sex partner.

Do I need an STD Infection Test if I recently had a smear test?

Yes, you do. Smear tests aren’t for bacterial infection diagnosis, but the procedure is almost the same. Even if you had a recent smear test, you still need an STD screen.

Should I undergo blood screening or bacterial screening?

Blood test screening is suitable for the high-risk population, but a bacterial screen is sufficient for the early diagnosis of common infections. Your healthcare provider will advise you on the most suitable.
