By Lauren Kavanagh The term “genital health” can be used in a broad way to encompass a range of health issues, but there are a number of different ways to talk to your doctor about how to improve your health.
Read more 1/7 How to discuss your sex life with your doctor Sex can be a sensitive topic, and your doctor is likely to be more comfortable discussing it with you if you have agreed to discuss it.
This is because discussing sex can have an effect on your overall health, as it can lead to depression, anxiety and other issues.
Talking to your GP about your sex lives can also help you to find the right therapist, and make sure you don’t end up with a therapist you don´t want.
2/7 Where to talk if you want to get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) If you want your doctor to test for STIs, you can talk to them about that, too.
There are a range to consider when it comes to talking about STIs in your medical history, and it depends on the kind of test you want.
Some tests can be free, while others require a fee.
Some STIs are covered by health insurance, while some don’t.
Read our guide to deciding which tests are covered and what they cost.
If you have been tested recently, you should ask if your GP has started testing you again, so they know if they are safe for you to test again.
Some people will be more likely to have a negative result if they have had more than a few tests, and that can make you feel even more anxious.
3/7 What happens if you test positive for an STI?
The first thing to know is that it is very important to take your results with a pinch of salt.
If there is a negative test result, your doctor may want to test you again.
However, you may still need to seek treatment if the positive result is still there.
There is no specific test to detect an STIs infection, so you need to be aware of your risk and what you can do to reduce it. 4/7 When can I get tested again?
It depends on whether or not you have tested positive for the STIs you have just been tested for.
The good news is that if you haven’t tested positive, your chances of getting an infection are much higher.
if you’ve been tested and your results are positive, you will need to get checked again.
If the negative test results are still there, you need time to work on them, so your chances are even lower.
The sooner you get tested, the better.
Read the information below to find out more about when to get tests again and when to stop.
5/7 If you are having an abortion, can you still get tested?
You can still get checked for an infection, but it may be more difficult for you.
Your doctor will tell you if it is safe to get an abortion.
It can be complicated.
You can get tested at any time if you think you have an infection and if you are unsure whether or if you will get an infection.
If this is the case, your GP will ask you for a test, but if you do, they will also want to check you again if you get a positive result.
The doctor will check your urine and stool for the virus, and if there are any bacteria on it, they may send you home for testing.
They will also send you an antibiotic to treat the infection.
The only way to know whether or when you will have an infected pregnancy is to go to the lab.
If your doctor does not have a lab available, you could still be tested.
If it’s the case that you have already tested positive or you do not have an active infection, you won’t need to go back to the doctor for a second test.
The tests are usually run every two months, so it’s unlikely you’ll need to wait more than one year before getting tested again.
6/7 Does my partner have an ST I?
Some people have an STD, but you should not be tested if your partner does.
If they have been positive for STI, you do need to talk with your partner about how you can make sure they are healthy.
If both of you are tested, you must agree to stop having sex and tell your partner the results.
If neither of you have had sex in the past year, your partner is unlikely to have an actual STI.
If that is the situation, your options are limited.
If one partner has an ST, you have options for dealing with it.
Your GP may prescribe a treatment, or you can have someone else work on your body and try to reduce your risk.
You will also need to discuss the treatment options with your therapist, so that they can work together to make sure the treatment is safe and effective.
If a partner does not like the treatment they have chosen, they can always go back for another test.
