Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – is a common group of viruses with over 100 types, some of which can lead to health problems like genital warts and cancers. Most sexually active people will get HPV at some point in their lives, though it often causes no symptoms and goes away on its own.

For women, certain high-risk types of HPV can lead to cervical cancer, one of the most serious complications. Regular cervical screening and HPV vaccination can greatly reduce the risk of developing this cancer.

For men, while they are less likely to develop cancers from HPV, they can still be carriers of the virus, contributing to its spread. Men can also develop genital warts and some types of cancer, like penile and throat cancers, from HPV. The HPV vaccine is effective in preventing these conditions in both men and women.

HPV vaccination is recommended for both men and women to prevent the spread of the virus and the associated health risks. Early vaccination, ideally before becoming sexually active, is most effective. Additionally, regular health screenings and safe sex practices can further reduce the risk of HPV-related health issues.

Test includes

HIV
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that damages the immune system and affects the body’s ability to fight everyday infections. It is transmitted within the blood and can be passed on through unprotected anal and vaginal sex. HIV cannot be cured through medication and infected individuals will carry the virus for life. Thankfully those living with the virus can lead a completely normal life by taking daily medication that keeps it under control.
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected sex with an infected individual. It’s important to test for the condition if you believe you have come in contact with it as it can have a long term impact on your health. Symptoms can include a painless sore or ulcer on the penis or vagina, along with other rashes affecting different areas of the body. Many people will notice no symptoms or the symptoms may be so mild that they pass unnoticed.
Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver. It is spread through the transfer of blood and bodily fluids, including through unprotected sex. It is less common in the UK when compared to other countries, but you are at risk if you have unprotected sex with someone carrying the virus. For many people, Hepatitis B has a lifelong impact and you may never fully be cured.
Herpes Simplex (HSV) is a virus that can be transmitted through skin on skin contact with someone who is having an active outbreak, including through vaginal, oral or anal sex. It can cause genital herpes where the condition presents as small blisters that burst to leave red, open sores. It can also present on the face in the form of cold sores. People infected with herpes carry the virus for life and may have outbreaks or flare ups..

People infected with herpes carry the virus for life and may have outbreaks or flare ups.
Gardnerella Vaginalis is a naturally occurring bacteria that is most commonly found in the vagina. It can however be transmitted through sexual intercourse and men can catch the infection. Due to the fact that it’s naturally occurring medication is often not prescribed for women unless there are symptoms.
Mycoplasma is a sexually transmitted bacteria that is found in the urinary tract of infected individuals. It rarely shows symptoms, but if left untreated it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease which is linked to infertility. It is passed on through vaginal sex with an infected individual and because there are often no signs of the infection the only way to know you have the condition is through testing.
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a bacteria responsible for gonorrhoea that tend to occur when asymptomatic infection ascends within the genital tract.
Trichomonas Vaginalis is a bacteria that causes Trichomoniasis – a sexually transmitted infection affecting both men and women. Symptoms are similar to other sexually transmitted infections, including unusual discharge in women, pain whilst urinating or having sex, and soreness affecting the genital area. Testing is often required to diagnose the STD and it is not offered as standard on the NHS.
Ureaplasma is a bacteria that is commonly found in the urinary or genital tract. It will usually live in balance with other bacteria naturally found in your body and many people will never know they have it. Due to its usual harmless nature, treatment is not usually prescribed unless the infected individual is noticing clear symptoms.
Candida albicans is a fungus that lives on your body in small amounts, located in your mouth, skin and intestines. Candida is yeast that is responsible for infections like thrush and vaginal yeast infections if it is off-balance with healthy bacteria in your body. Infections are common and treated with antifungal medications.
Candida glabrata (C. glabrata) can be found as a part of your natural microflora. It may be present in the GI tract, the mouth, and the genital area. Candida glabrata is typically well-controlled, or harmless, in most healthy people. But it can become a problem in people with suppressed immune systems. Candida glabrata also has a high resistance to some antifungal medications, which can make it hard to treat.
Candida krusei is a budding yeast (a species of fungus) involved in chocolate production. Candida krusei is an emerging fungal nosocomial pathogen.
Candida parapsilosisis the second most common cause of yeast infections after C.albicans in humans.
Candida tropicalis has been identified as the most prevalent pathogenic yeast species of the Candida-non-albicans group. Historically, Candida albicans has been the major species causing infections in immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients.
Chlamydia is a common STD that causes infection in both men and women. It can cause permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system. Often presenting no symptoms for years, it is sometimes referred to the silent STD.
Ureaplasma is a bacterium that can be passed through sexual contact although it is not considered a classic STI or STD because of its low degree of pathogenicity. It is estimated that quite a large proportion of the sexually active population is infected with Ureaplasma and it doesn’t cause any issues.
Ureaplasma parvum. Ureaplasma has a unique position of being a commensal infection in most people, which means it can exist in healthy people and require no treatment. It can also behave as a STI , as well as an opportunistic infection in others.
The Treponema pallidum bacteria causes Syphilis which can cause serious health effects without adequate treatment.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a type of virus that can infect humans and cause a wide range of health problems. It belongs to the family of herpes viruses and is common in the general population, with up to 60% of adults having been infected at some point in their lives. While many people who are infected with CMV do not experience any symptoms, the virus can cause serious health issues in people with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or organ transplant recipients. In some cases, CMV can cause vision loss, pneumonia, or other severe complications. CMV is typically transmitted through bodily fluids, such as saliva, blood, urine, and breast milk. There is currently no cure for CMV, but antiviral medications can help to manage symptoms and prevent complications in people who are at high risk.
Atopobium vaginae is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in the female reproductive tract. It is believed to play a role in the development of bacterial vaginosis, a common vaginal infection that can cause symptoms such as itching, discharge, and odor.
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal infection caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina, including BVAB2 (Bacterial Vaginosis-Associated Bacterium 2). It can cause symptoms such as discharge, itching, and odor, and may increase the risk of other health problems. BV is typically treated with antibiotics.
Bacteroides fragilis is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in the human gut. While it is generally harmless in healthy individuals, it can cause serious infections in people with weakened immune systems, such as those undergoing cancer treatment or surgery. Bacteroides fragilis infections can be difficult to treat and may require a combination of antibiotics and other therapies.
Candida lusitaniae is a type of yeast that is commonly found in the environment and can also cause infections in humans. It is a rare cause of candidemia, a bloodstream infection caused by Candida species, but it is known for its resistance to certain antifungal medications. Treatment typically involves a combination of antifungal medications and measures to support the immune system.
Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a sexually transmitted infection caused by certain strains of the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It primarily affects the lymph nodes and can cause symptoms such as swelling, ulcers, and abscesses in the genital and anal areas. LGV can be treated with antibiotics, but early diagnosis is important to prevent complications such as chronic inflammation and scarring.
Lactobacillus spp. (spp. stands for “species”) are a type of bacteria that are commonly found in the human body, particularly in the digestive and reproductive tracts. They are considered to be “friendly” bacteria that play a role in maintaining the health of the body, particularly by helping to balance the microbiome and prevent overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Lactobacillus spp. are also commonly used as probiotics to help support digestive and immune health.
Mobiluncus spp. (spp. stands for “species”) are a type of anaerobic bacteria that are commonly found in the female reproductive tract. They are associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV), a common vaginal infection that can cause symptoms such as discharge, itching, and odor. While Mobiluncus spp. are not always present in cases of BV, their presence may be an indicator of a more severe form of the infection. BV is typically treated with antibiotics.
Megasphaera type 1 is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in the female reproductive tract. It is associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV), a common vaginal infection that can cause symptoms such as discharge, itching, and odor. BV is typically treated with antibiotics, but recurrence of the infection is common. Megasphaera type 1 may play a role in the persistence of BV, and may be a target for future treatments.
Haemophilus ducreyi is a type of bacteria that causes the sexually transmitted infection known as chancroid. It is most common in developing countries and can cause painful ulcers and sores in the genital area. Chancroid can be treated with antibiotics, but it is important to seek medical attention if symptoms occur to prevent complications and further transmission of the infection.
Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a sexually transmitted infection caused by certain strains of the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It primarily affects the lymph nodes and can cause symptoms such as swelling, ulcers, and abscesses in the genital and anal areas. LGV can be treated with antibiotics, but early diagnosis is important to prevent complications such as chronic inflammation and scarring.
