    Aurora offers infection screening tests for sexually-transmitted infections (STIs). Many STIs may not show any symptoms in the early stages, but eventually cause inflammation and other tissue damage with potentially damaging consequences (such as infertility). Evidence suggests screening can help prevent damaging long-term consequences. 

    Which STI Screening Tests Are Available?

    The screening tests detailed in the table below are readily available for healthy women/men without symptoms of disease:

    Infection Test Type Suitable for Women/Men
    Chlamydia Urine / Swab Both
    Gonorrhea Urine / Swab Both
    Trichomonas Swab Both
    Bacterial Vaginosis Vaginal Swab Women
    Thrush (Candida) Vaginal Swab Women
    Syphillis Blood Both
    Hepatitis B Blood Both
    Hepatitis C Blood Both
    HIV Blood Both

    Women and men already demonstrating symptoms of a sexually-transmitted disease are advised to arrange urgent appointments with their doctor to undergo appropriate testing and treatment. 

    What Are The Risks of STI Screening?

    Infection screening is a relatively painless and safe procedure but, as with all screening processes, false positives and false negatives are possible.
