Sexually Transmitted Diseases & Genital Warts

It is important that your doctor is informed if you have engaged in oral, vaginal, or anal sex so they can determine where swabs or testing should be done.

Which STDs Are You At Risk Of Contracting?

STDs can be acquired by through any form of sexual contact. We assess your risk through an STD screening approach based on the types of engagement you have experienced, such as kissing, petting, getting or giving oral sex, vaginal penetration or anal penetration.

We approach this based on the type of sexual engagement – kissing, petting, getting or giving oral sex, vaginal penetration or anal penetration.

Type of STDs

Are There Lesser-Known STDs That Are Not Routinely Tested For?

Mycoplasma Genitalium is an STD that many are unaware of, and is rarely covered in most screenings. Be aware of the possibility of mycoplasma genitalium if you have STD symptoms even when your STD tests have all come back negative. Ask for a Mycoplasma Genitalium DNA test.

If left untreated or improperly managed, such as through the wrong use of antibiotics, it can cause infertility and chronic prostate infections.

Not sure how to talk to your partner about getting tested? Here are some tips on getting the conversation started.

What Are Genital Warts?

Genital warts are unsightly infectious clusters of skin coloured lesion that can look like a cauliflower. Genital warts can be caused by various types of viruses like the Molluscum Cantagiosum Virus (MCV) and the HPV virus. Any bumps in the genital areas should be shown to your doctor, so that the correct diagnosis can be made as not all bumps are warts.

Treatment Options For Genital Warts

A CO2 laser is our preferred method to vapourise warts (especially MCV warts) as it has better precision and scarring is reduced.

Chemicals

We use drugs such as podophyllotoxins to hamper the division and growth of the warts. The drug must be applied by a doctor and is not prescribed to patients to use on their own at home.

Electrocautery

After the injection of a local anesthetic, the warts are desiccated with electrosurgery, which uses special tips powered by electricity to damage the warts. The warts are physically removed on the same day of the procedure.

Creams

Aldara cream or imiquimod can be used to treat some precancerous skin lesion like actinic keratosis.

FAQ

Can I get an STD from oral sex?

It’s a huge misconception to think that you can’t get an STD from oral sex. STDs such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea, herpes, HPV and syphilis can be spread through oral sex. Anyone exposed to an infected partner can get an STD in the mouth, throat, genitals, or rectum.

You can lower your chances of giving or getting STDs during oral sex by using a condom, dental dam or other barrier method each and every time you have oral sex. Watch our video now to find out how to make your own oral sex protection tool from a condom!

How long does it take to cure genital warts?

If you have a good intact immune system, the lesions can clear completely within 6 to 12 months. In some cases, the disease can persist for 3 to 5 years and can occasionally leave scars.

Last week (13th Feb 2020) was my first visit to this clinic. I was very impressed and satisfied with InSync Medical Women's Clinic. Dr. Jess was very attentive and detailed in examining my situation. Her explanation was very clear and understandable. With her patience, I was able to ask lots of questions and understand my situation much better than before. (Thank you, Dr. Jess) Price wise, it is reasonable and I would HIGHLY recommend this clinic. Again, thank you!

I am soooooo glad I went here to have my concernssorted. I have no words how comfortable I am after she had me checked up. Her hands are very light aswell. It's like having a class about our body parts. She explained my result that I had back in Bangkok than the doctor I had there. How I wish there is someone like her that will make sure all our questions and concerns are answered. She's the best of best. Highly recommend her. Price is reasonable too. Just thank you Dr.Jess and her assistant Aisyah. Have a wonderful day always.

Dr Jess is an amazing doctor with a beautiful heart. What I really love about her is that is super realistic. She does not promise rapid/fake results. She is very humble and I really like it that spent her time to talk and explain to me about my condition in detail. I have been to so many other doctors for the same. They will just talk briefly and try to push me to start the treament on the spot / nurses will start discussing on pricing.Wasted my time and money in the wrong clinic before. However, Dr Jess is just different.She is not greedy. Very helpful and high level of professionlism and empathy.And her staff Hani is super sweet too. Customer service top notch. Sometime I send message so late when i need something urgently. Hani will still reply to me patiently. I am so lucky I finally found the best doctor and her assitant for my lady needs 🙂 . I only have one regret-I didnt find them earlier.
