Not all men who have an infection presents with a sign or symptom. In order to be sure, all sexually active men are encouraged to go for regular sexual health screening.

Gentlemen, Get your
Partner(s) Tested too!
If you have been diagnosed with an STI, we encourage you to also ask your sexual partner(s) to get tested too. This is to protect their health and their well-being. Many infected people often don’t present with any sign or symptom, but bear in mind that STIs are harmful to your health if left untreated. If you are considering getting your partner(s) to come forth for a testing, it is best you do it straight away. If you put off the idea for another day, you might never tell them what you intend to.
The Melbourne Sexual Health Centre (Australia) has released some great and practical tips to help prepare you to talk to your partner(s) and getting them to come forward for a sexual health screening.
Do note that your partner(s) are encouraged to call the DSC Clinic if they need to talk to someone about their sexual health.
Our friendly counsellors are always ready to assist and they are reachable at 1800 252 1324. Information leaflets are available in hardcopies at the clinic, and are also viewable online here.
To visit DSC for a testing or screening, simply call our appointment centre at 6293 9648.
Practice Safer Sex
- Condoms are the most effective way to prevent HIV transmission and help prevent other STIs. They work by preventing the transfer of infected fluids.
- Using lubricant helps reduce the chance of condom breaking. Only use a water based lubricant. Oil and creams weaken condoms and can cause them to break.
STI Check-Ups and Vaccinations
- Regularly get tested for STIs. Getting vaccinated against hepatitis B early or if you are not immune can help protect you against the infection.
Use Condoms Correctly
