What is sexual medicine?

Sexual medicine is a branch of general medicine concerned with sexually transmitted infections (STI) and sexual health matters for both men and women.

Sexually transmitted infections include chlamydia, trachomatis, gonorrhoea, herpes, genital warts, syphilis and HIV.

What are the symptoms of sexually transmitted infections?

There are many infections that are sexually transmitted but not all infections give rise to symptoms. An example of an STI which can have no symptoms is chlamydia, where approximately 70% of women are asymptomatic. The main risks of such an infection can be pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility and painful intercourse. For other sexually transmitted infections the range of symptoms varies depending on the types of infection.

Common symptoms related to STI's are genital itching, genital discomfort, pain, discharge, rash localised and/or generalised, sexual dysfunction and skin lumps and ulceration.

Sexual medicine also includes genital conditions such as vaginal and/or urethral discharge, genital lumps, rash, itchiness, ulceration as well as unexplained genital/pelvic pain.

Sexual problems

Patients can experience sexual problems. For example, in males - impotence, premature ejaculation etc. and in women - painful intercourse, genital pain and loss of libido.

What is a sexual health service?

A sexual health service offers information and advice about all sexual health issues as well as tests, treatment and counselling, provided in complete privacy by a Consultant Physician or other specialist.

Management of sexual problems/STI's and genito urinary conditions is confidential and designed for early detection, prevention of further transmission as well as alleviation of anxiety.
