What is the Comprehensive Screen?
Better2Know’s Comprehensive Screen is available to women in our private sexual health clinics throughout Ireland. This screen has been designed by our team of experts for WSW and any women with unusual symptoms (discharge, pain, itching in the genital area).
This screen bring you fast, accurate testing for a wide range of STIs. The Comprehensive Screen requires an incubation period of 14 days; this means that the test is suitable just two weeks after any potential exposure.
Which STIs are tested for?
- Herpes I/II (Current Infection)
- Vaginal swab culture to identify other bacteria
Which samples are needed?
This screen requires a urine sample and a swab (or two). A high vaginal swab will be cultured in our laboratory to detect any bacterical infections present. The remaining STIs can be tested for using either a urine sample or a second swab sample.
How do I get my results?
The results of your screen will be available within five working days after your sample is received by our accredited laboratory. This screen is supported by Better2Know’s outstanding Medical and Patient Services teams.
You can check the progress of your results at any time by logging into your secure Patient Area on our website. We will contact you when all your results are ready, by your choice of telephone, email or SMS.
What if I test positive?
We will help you every step of the way. We can arrange a doctor's consultation for you to get any treatment that you need. You can, of course, take your results to your own doctor if you would prefer.
