What to expect at your appointment

If you have any health concerns or symptoms, for example an abnormal discharge, then it is important that you let us know so we can plan the most appropriate tests for you. 

You should tell us if you’re not happy having an intimate examination. We can talk about other ways of carrying out your tests. For example, you may be able to take a vaginal swab yourself or give a urine sample. You will be offered tests appropriate to your needs (we always recommend testing for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis). Other tests and vaccinations will be added according to your needs. 

Your visit to our Young Persons’ service will be confidential and we will not share information without your permission. However, if we believe you or others are in serious danger, we may need to speak to others to protect you. We will usually speak to you first if we are going to share information about you.
