Herpes

Herpes Simplex 1 known as HSV 1 – the patient presents with cold sores which can be caught via oral sex.

Herpes Simplex 2 known as HSV 2 – the patient presents with genital sores and can be caught via oral sex.

Herpes is also included in our combined STI multiple tests.

Cold sores are not considered an STI infection can occur in many non-sexual ways. However, Herpes I is responsible for about half of "genital herpes" cases. Genital Herpes is typically transmitted through sexual contact.

Up to 60% of people who have Genital Herpes may not know they have been infected. Their symptoms may not present themselves. They can still infect others via sexual intercourse.

Herpes can cause complications during pregnancy and labour which can be managed by a doctor or midwife. If you are pregnant and think you have Herpes (a new or old infection) you must see a doctor. There is an increased chance of recurrent symptoms during pregnancy. Some women who have previously been asymptomatic may notice symptoms for the first-time whist pregnant.

It is important to treat Herpes outbreaks, as those who have it have an increased risk of getting other Sexually Transmitted Disease, including HIV.

We have ample parking, great reviews.
