Below provides key information about taking an STD test with DMT Labs.
What is an STI?
A sexually transmitted infection or STI (also known as a sexually transmitted disease/ STD) is an infection that is spread from an infected person to another through sexual contact or sexual intercourse (vaginal, oral, or anal sex). These include Chlamydia, Genital herpes, Gonorrhoea, HIV, HPV, Syphilis, Pubic lice etc. Some STIs can also be transmitted from mother-to-child during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. STIs do not discriminate or respect boundaries; they can affect anyone who is sexually active regardless of age, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and economic status.
Below outlines some of the key questions asked by people around STD’s
There are no reliable symptoms of an STI and over 66% of people have no STI symptoms at all, as a result, a person can have an STI without knowing. However, if you have noticed any of the following symptoms, you should order a test for peace of mind:
If in doubt, get tested!
Yes, you should get tested for an STI at least once a year. Many STIs do not have immediate symptoms and can remain dormant. For many people, it may take weeks, months, or even years to start experiencing symptoms of an STI.
The first step is to not panic! The second step is to contact our team to get in touch with a health care provider who can offer you and your partner the best advice and guidelines on how you all should progress with taking care of your sexual and reproductive health. You can contact us via email (email@example.com) or phone (+27 68 374 9541).
DMT partners with local pathological testing labs. They are responsible for processing the samples and transmitting those results back to DMT. Our healthcare practitioner will contact you to communicate your results and treatment prescription if required. All labs are accredited with the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS).
No, you don’t need to be referred to our service by your GP as you can ‘self-refer’. You do not need a letter from your family doctor to order one of our tests. DMT also offers virtual doctors and nurse consultations to guide you through the process and communicate your results and treatment prescription if required.
After the samples have arrived at the lab, the DMT team will reach out within 7 business days to discuss the results and help determine the next steps if needed.
We recommend getting the Comprehensive STD test completed annually and using the Standard STD test in between annual tests. We advise people to get tested every 6 to 12 months, or more often if they have an increased risk for STIs such as having new sexual partners. For women between the ages of 25-65, we recommend that they take the HPV test at least once in 5 years.
Yes. Providing our patients with the privacy they need is important to us. When you take a test with our STD Testing services you will receive a professional and discreet service. Your results are always confidential, and 100% guaranteed.
Thousands of people test positive for STIs and STDs every day, and the good news is that now you know your status, you can get the medical treatment that you need to prevent/minimise any long-term health complications.
You have a choice of what to do next: we can arrange a consultation for you, or you can take your results to your own Doctor, who can also prescribe treatment. It is important to get treated, even if you have no symptoms, as you can still pass the STI on to your partner. You may cause long-term health risks if you do not get treated. In order to best protect your health and treat the STI, it is important to speak to a doctor, to be prescribed the right drug for you.
