What to Expect
According to both CDC in USA and statistics in Singapore, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are the top 2 STIs. Left untreated both can cause serious long-term consequences such as infertility or complications during pregnancy affecting the unborn child.
Using the technology of real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction), which simply means that the test is able to detect the DNA of both Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea in real-time, allows for accurate and quick diagnosis of STIs caused by these 2 organisms.
The accuracy of the test can be up to 99%. The risk of contracting HIV can be higher if there is an open wound or an ulcer on the genitals or if there is blood present during the sexual contact. HIV can also be transmitted through the sharing of needles (especially in drug use) with someone who is infected with HIV.
Remember that you can only get HIV if you engage in a risky sexual activity or share needles with someone who is already infected with HIV.
The doctors are experienced and trained in handling HIV-STD related cases.
