When Should I have an STI screen?
It is advised that you have an STI screen if you have had unprotected sex, especially with an unknown partner or if you have any symptoms listed above. If a recent or present partner has been diagnosed with an STI or before each new sexual relationship if you have been previously sexually active. You may need regular screening if you are at high risk. At Charter we are happy to offer a discount for two people coming in for their screens, at the price of €100 each.
If you are worried about a particular exposure and you have NO symptoms, it is advised to wait 2 weeks before attending for screening.
**If you have any queries regarding the above information, please do not hesitate to contact us at Charter Medical**
Is this service confidential?
The law guarantees your confidentiality. Your Charter clinical records cannot be shown to your doctor or insurance companies unless we have a signed request from you.
