Sexual health

Sexual health is a highly personal issue for many people who prefer to discuss this in a discreet and confidential environment with a private GP or specialist. We provide all of this at Harley Street via our sexual health clinics that place your needs above everything else. They understand that this is a sensitive subject and will treat you in a sympathetic, non-judgemental manner which will put you at your ease.

Our clinics provide a range of screening and treatment services which includes advice about diet, exercise and other lifestyle factors. This can form part of a well woman/well man session or as an individual session.

Sexual health services

These services include testing and treatment for:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases and infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea, genital herpes, syphilis and HIV.
  • Impotence
  • Fungal infections, e.g. yeast
  • Viral infections, e.g. Herpes simplex
  • Scabies
  • Non-specific urethritis

All of these are accompanied by counselling.

Sexual health treatment

A session involves a frank and open discussion about your condition where your details will be kept confidential. You can choose to remain anonymous if you so wish.

Many people who are unsure about their sexuality or worry about experiencing discrimination due to their being homosexual or lesbian are reluctant to discuss intimate problems. If this applies to you then rest assured that any issues of a sexual nature will be dealt with in a non-discriminatory and open minded manner.

You will be asked about your lifestyle and medical history during this session. This is followed by a physical examination and tests.

These tests include blood and urine samples, swabs and in some cases, ultrasound scans.

Treatment depends upon the sexually transmitted disease or infection. Options include antibiotics, creams, anti-viral medication, cryotherapy and self-help measures, e.g. wearing a condom.
