Cervical Cancer Screening: Pap Smears, HPV Testing and Vaccination and treatment of Genital warts

Cervical cancer screening is a must for anyone with a cervix – and that’s why family planning and contraception services are so important. Thankfully, getting your screening isn’t too much of a hassle.

We offer Pap smears and HPV testing as two ways to check for cervical cancer – while the HPV test detects the virus itself, the Pap smear looks at the cells in your cervix. You can also receive the HPV vaccination if you’re over 12 years old, which will help protect against certain types of cancer-causing viruses.

Cervical cancer can be easy to prevent with regular screenings, but if it does get detected, we have treatments available. That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of our family planning and contraceptive services and schedule your cervical cancer screening today – so you can take control of your sexual health and wellbeing!

Sexually Transmitted Infection(STI):Testing and Treatment

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are one of those things that no one likes to talk about, but everyone should get tested for. That’s why we provide comprehensive family planning and contraceptive services, including testing and treatment for STIs.

Our expert team will put your mind at ease with a variety of services that cover the gamut of STI testing, including:

  • Blood tests for HIV
  • Syphilis and Hepatitis B.
  • Urine tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
  • Swabs for Herpes, Trichomoniasis and other common STIs
  • Pap smears to check for cervical cancer
  • Screening and monitoring of high-risk behaviours such as sex work or multiple sexual partners
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) guidance
  • Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) advice
  • Treatment and follow up care

Our services don’t just stop at testing—we also provide treatment where needed, plus follow-up care to monitor your continued heath and wellbeing after you’ve left us. So let us help you stay safe in the bedroom without worrying about any unexpected guests!
