What happens if I have an examination?

What happens if I have an examination?

The doctor or nurse may ask to examine your genitals and possibly other parts of your body. This will help the doctor or nurse to check for infections and any related problems. Samples may be taken from various places for testing.

The doctor or nurse will explain the examination beforehand and will be as understanding as possible, as we appreciate this can be an awkward experience.

The clinic offers chaperones to accompany you during examinations. A chaperone not only helps the doctor or nurse but is also there to support you and ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. You will be asked whether you would like a chaperone with you for your examination.
