STD Testing Singapore | Shim Clinic

STD Testing Singapore. Full & comprehensive sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing to screen for sexually transmitted infections (STI)s after unprotected sex, like a condom break, slip or if no condom was used. Private & confidential consultation.

People infected with STIs often have no STD symptoms. But through sex, can go on to infect other people. STD testing is the only way to diagnose an infection.

For every STD, a portion of infected people may have symptoms, and the rest are asymptomatic. So no symptoms does not mean that there is no disease. Therefore, the only way to check for the presence of an STD is to test for it.

  • 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
