Female Sexual Health

Womens Sexual Health Screening

Female sexual health clinics run most days of the week.  You can book directly for this clinic online or by calling UHS and informing the receptionist which clinic you would like.  A sexual health screen usually requires a urine sample or a vaginal swab and a blood test.  The screen normally checks for the following diseases:

  • chlamydia;
  • gonorrhoea;
  • HIV;
  • syphilis.

In some circumstances additional tests might be recommended by the nurse or doctor.

Cervical Smear Tests (Pap Smear)

All women over the age of 25 are offered a regular cervical smear test.  This can be undertaken at any time when you are not bleeding.  Please make a 20 minute appointment with a nurse for this test.
