Testing for STIs in men without symptoms
Men will need to provide a urine sample, which we will send to the hospital lab to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. We will also do a blood test for HIV and syphilis, and occasionally hepatitis B or C.
Testing for STIs in men with symptoms
- We will do a full genital examination of the genital skin, testicles, and penis. We may take a swab from the tip of the penis.
- If you have been receiving anal sex, we can examine your rectum (just inside your bottom), and take swabs for STIs.
- We will ask for a urine sample to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
- We will take a blood sample for HIV and syphilis, and in some cases the hepatitis viruses B and C.
- We may take a throat swab, depending on your circumstances.
