Do I have to have an examination?

Do I have to have an examination?

If you do not have any symptoms you can have routine screening tests without being examined. This usually involves a chlamydia and gonorrhoea test and a blood test for HIV and syphilis. A blood test may be offered for hepatitis B and C if there’s a risk you might have been in contact with them.

If you have symptoms you’re concerned about it is normally recommended that a nurse or doctor examines to take extra tests and to check what might be causing them. Some conditions, for example genital warts, can only be diagnosed by examination. Sometimes the nurse or doctor might advise an examination to make sure we can offer you the best support and care, even if you do not have symptoms.
