STI Screening

Any sexually active person may be exposed to a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and is advised to get tested regularly.

Some STIs have no symptoms and if left untreated can result in infertility in both sexes and other serious medical conditions. The good news is that treatment for most STIs is simple and painless. Some of the most common STIs can be treated with a one-day antibiotic course.

If you are pregnant and think you might have picked up a STI, it is particularly important to get it checked out and treated as soon as possible.

The IFPA offers STI screening at its clinics in Dublin city centre and Tallaght. Our medical staff are trained to screen for and treat STIs in an understanding and helpful way so there is no need for you to feel embarrassed.
