Infection Screening

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 INFECTION 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 INFECTION SCREENING?

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