Help me about STD Testing !
Permalink: https://shimclinic.sg/std-testing

STD testing / STD screening lets you check for the presence of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Which is an infection that is spread, mainly by sexual contact with an infected person, when no condom is used during vaginal sexoral sexanal sex, or cunnilingus.

Early STD treatment stops further damage to your body, prevents STD transmission to another person, and lets you tell your previous partners so that they can get tested.

After infection, you may not have STD symptoms. But you can check for an STI with STD screening.

We are a walk-in clinic, so during our operating hours, you may just walk in. Kindly hold your urine overnight, or for at least 4 hours prior to arriving at the clinic. As there may be some waiting for your turn, after registration, if you are unable to continue holding your urine, ask the counter for a urine container to provide a first-catch sample of urine.

Consultation is SG$68/=, which includes:

  • Private and confidential discussion of sexual history, symptoms and concerns
  • Genital examination for discharge, blisters, ulcers, growths, rash. Consider trimming or shaving your pubic hair to facilitate a clearer view
  • Provisional diagnosis and sexual risk assessment
  • Discussion of investigation and treatment options

and the following are the prices for the different types of STD testing:
