Sexual Health

Sexual health deals with issues such as unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and safer sex practices.

Sexually transmitted infections

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are contracted during unprotected sex and their symptoms vary widely. You can reduce the risk by practising safe sex, through the use of condoms.

However, as condoms do not offer 100% protection, a better option is for a couple to be in a monogamous and faithful relationship. 

Common STIs

  • HIV, the virus that causes AIDS
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Herpes
  • Syphilis
  • Genital warts

If you suspect that you have an infection, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. It is important to treat STIs early to reduce complications and stop the spread of infection to others.

To look after your reproductive health, visit your doctor regularly. Practise family planning so you'll never have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy or about passing an infection to your child.

There could be several reasons for a missed period. The causes for it will depend on factors such as your age, lifestyle factors and whether you are sexually active or not. You have correctly done the right thing when you missed your period which was to perform a urine pregnancy ...

Hi there, spotting is usually not a sign of something worrying, especially if it happens around your ovulation, or 1-2 days before or after your period. The length of time for which you've had spotting for does not sound normal, and you should visit your GP/gynae to have it checked out. Your do...

Thank you for the question. The risk of catching HIV is highest if you have multiple sexual partners and practice unprotected sex. The risk of transmission is higher through vaginal and anal sex and is lower with oral sex. HIV can also be transmitted through blood and blood prod...

Hi, there is close to no chance of getting pregnant if you were both fully clothed. There's a theoretical chance that one could get pregnant in this fashion given a very specific set of (unlikely) circumstances, but I've yet to come across any documented cases of someone getting ...

Syphilis is usually detected on a blood test as the patient might not have any symptoms. It should be treated with a special penicillin injection, usually available only at the Kelantan Clinic or department of STD control.

Hi there Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), as you have mentioned, is a course of anti-HIV medication which is taken for 1 month after a high risk sexual exposure to HIV. This aims to prevent the HIV virus from infecting you after you have been exposed to it. PEP is normally gi...

A Doctor Tells You Why It Is Important To Take A HIV test, Even If You Think You Are Not At ‘High-Risk’

General practitioner, Dr Jonathan Ti, revealed that a late HIV diagnosis is a huge determinant in HIV-related deaths. In his many years of treating HIV, many people have admitted that they didn't take the test sooner because of the public stigma. 

This stigmatisation can be detrimental to the patient's health. Most of the times, early detection will lead to early treatment and thus, better outcomes.

Dr Jonathan Ti recently posted a complete guide to getting an HIV test done in Singapore on DxD. Here are some of the key points from his super comprehensive guide.
