STD/STI Screening for Women

It is very important to get regular screening for STDs.

This is especially so in women because many women who are infected with STDs do not show any obvious signs or symptoms.

If left untreated, these STDs can lead to serious long term complications like Infertility and Cancer.

International and Singapore standard guidelines recommend screening for Chlamydia and a PAP Smear at least annually for all sexually active women.

What should Women Screen for?

1. HIV

An infection that will lead to AIDS.

Screening to be done at least annually for all sexually active women.

If there is a high risk exposure (e.g. Condom break), a HIV Combo test is recommended 1 month post exposure.

If the exposure is extremely high risk (e.g. Known HIV +ve partner), HIV PEP treatment is recommended within 72 hours of exposure.

4. Herpes 1 and 2

For women with recurrent symptoms, they can be placed on tablets to prevent the ulcers and blisters from forming.

What is the procedure?

There are 2 things that are required:

1. Blood

This is a standard procedure where blood is drawn from your arm.

Your blood will be drawn by professional certified doctors.

2. Vaginal Swabs

This feels exactly like a PAP smear.

A lubricated speculum (small plastic tube) is inserted gently into your vagina.

Small cotton tip swabs are then used to collect the specimen from either the cervix or the fornices (area around the cervix).

You will feel some pressure but the procedure should not be painful.

Your tests will all be conducted by professional qualified doctors.

For lady patients who prefer female doctors, we have 2 professional certified female Doctors to attend to conduct the screening for you.

We only use single-use disposable equipment to ensure hygiene and safety.

Our Clinic is certified by the Ministry of Health for good Infectious Disease Control measures.

  1. How long the result will be out? If , I want to take the standard STD screening?

    Thank u

  2. Hi, do you guys perform oral swab tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea?

    How long does it take to get results? Is it possible to expedite (e.g. if a partner has tested positive)?

    • Hi, yes we do perform oral swab tests for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. We will try and expedite the results but sometimes it can still take up to 1 week to get the results.

  3. Hi, I would like to know if herpes will be detected in a normal blood test or urine test (I.e normal medical check up, not STD screening)?

  4. KRISTINA aarvold
