Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and the diseases they cause (STDs) are considered to be the oldest and most fundamental parts of dermatological care. The modern acronym; STI, was introduced to replace the classic but also stigmatizing notion of sexually transmitted diseases. This was necessary to prevent people from feeling ashamed because of their disease and to include diseases which can spread without sexual contact as well. In addition to the „classic”, well-known venereal diseases, new diseases are also covered by the new term. The significance of these diseases continues to play a prominent role in practice. Screening for sexually transmitted infections, evaluating results, and treating diseases require great expertise.

What should you know about the examination?

  • It is natural for you to feel uncomfortable about sharing your intimate problems, but venereologic consultation and patient examination takes place in a friendly environment, under the guidance of an empathic specialist.
  • Important to know when to consult a doctor: if you notice discharge, sores, blisters, pain in the genitals and experience fever or chills. Symptoms may be accompanied by lymph node enlargement, various skin symptoms, and hair loss. You might notice symptoms of infection during, a few hours after, or even days or weeks after a sexual intercourse.
  • A disease might be the result of several pathogens at the same time, so it is important to identify the root cause of the symptoms. For this, we carry out a bacteriological test (cultivation) and preferably a tolerance test so that we can offer personalised therapy.
  • It is advisable to take the STD test together with your partner, as one might not even has the infection or you may suffer from different diseases.
  • It is important to treat these diseases as certain pathogens can remain latent and asymptomatical for years or decades, leading to long-term complications or infertility. Be aware that an infection can be transmitted even in its asymptomatic state, so we recommend taking an STD screening before entering into a new relationship or after having a casual relationship.
  • If diagnosed in time, a significant proportion of sexually transmitted infections can be treated effectively thus the earliest possible diagnosis should be sought.
  • Sexual intercourse should be suspended until recovery, as otherwise the symptoms may worsen or one’s partner might become infected as well. For long-term prevention it is advised to either use a condom when engaging in a casual contact or to develop a responsible sexual behaviour post-recovery.
  • The STD examination is performed with the utmost discretion, your data is registered and evaluated confidentially, and its findings are presented exclusively to you!
