Bacterial infections

Bacterial infections are tested through microbiology swabs and final results take 3 – 5 days. Prescriptions can be provided when required.

Bacteria transmitted through sexual contact can lead to a range of infections in both men and women, including:

• Gonorrhoea
• Chlamydia
• Yeast infection (candidiasis)
• Trichomoniasis
• Bacterial vaginosis
• Urinary tract infections caused by e-coli
• Streptococcus infection
• Ureaplasma and mycoplasma

Broadly, symptoms of vaginal or penile infection include inflammation, irritation, pain, itching, or soreness around the genital area. You may also notice a burning sensation during urination, an unusual discharge, discolored discharge, or pain after sex.

Bacterial infections are easily treatable. If you have any unusual symptoms, it is important that you speak to a doctor to rule out anything serious and to prevent future complications.
