MHS provides all-round STD services, please click below buttons to learn more. 

STD consultation (HK$680up,  extra charge will be required for extra medication and laboratory tests) will be conducted by a registered doctor. The medical check-up consists of a general medical examination, and a questionnaire about the sexual history. 

The doctor may suggest urine test and blood tests , and sometimes swabs from open sores or discharges may be taken and tested for various microorganisms. 

In order to test STD, blood taking for antigen and antibody detection is commonly used in the market. Unlike such traditional practice, MHS provides comprehensive DNA screening for STD. Compared with antigen and antibody tests, DNA detection not only offers a higher sensitivity and accuracy, but also shortens the testing time.

As some STDs have no symptoms, infection can possibly be neglected. Therefore, it is necessary to receive a comprehensive STD check-up for people who have sex life.
