STD screening is an important part of maintaining sexual health and well-being, especially if you are sexually active. If you’re located in Singapore, it’s important to know the STD screening prices and where to go for the tests. Getting tested for STDs can be intimidating, but knowing your status can help give you peace of mind. Regular testing is also strongly encouraged as some common symptoms may not always be present or visible.

So what are the different types of STD testing available in Singapore?

Blood Tests: Blood testing is one of the most common forms of STD testing used in Singapore. It’s usually done to detect infections such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Hepatitis B and C, syphilis, and herpes simplex. In general, it takes about 1-3 working days for results to be made available after the sample has been processed by an accredited laboratory.

Throat Swab: A throat swab test is used to collect a sample of cells from the back of your throat and then analyze them for the presence of any infectious agents that may be causing an STD. This test is usually done if you experience symptoms such as sore throat or fever that could be caused by an STD.

Urine Tests: Urine tests are the most effective way to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea in men and pregnant women. To ensure that the results are accurate, it’s important to hold your urine for at least 1-2 hours before going for the test.

Swabs: Anal and vaginal swabs are often used to detect infections such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and herpes simplex. Anal swabs can be performed for both men and women while vaginal swabs are the option of choice for non-pregnant women. This type of sample collection is usually done in a certified STD clinic by a qualified doctor or nurse practitioner.

Penis/Vagina examinations: For men, genital examinations are usually done to check for signs of infection or inflammation on the penis. For women, visual inspection is often used to detect any abnormalities of the vulva and vagina that may be associated with an STD.  The doctor will inspect any visible sores or lesions and take swabs to test for STDs. But do bear in mind that a clear visual examination does not exclude STDs as many present no symptoms whatsoever.
