  • STI Information

    A STI can be passed from one person to another through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex.
    Many people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) don’t get symptoms, so it’s worth getting tested even if you feel fine.
    Many STIs can be treated with antibiotics. Some, such as HIV, have no cure, but can be treated to prevent them getting worse. The key is to get tested.

    For more information on sexually transmitted infections visit NHS Choices.

  • PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis)

    PrEP is Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, a way of taking medication to prevent HIV infection, and is currently available for free in Northern Ireland.

    Where to access PrEP

    PrEP Contact Number – 07818538895

    Altnagelvin Sexual Health Clinic* phone 02871611269 or email: PrEP@westerntrust.hscni.net or book online at www.sxt.health

    More information at www.iwantprepnow.co.uk and https://prepster.info/

    Who’s eligible for PrEP?
    • Gay/bisexual men
    • Trans women
    • People who are having condomless sex with people living with HIV, who are NOT on treatment

    There may be other risks that mean that people may benefit from PrEP – if you think this is the case we are happy to talk it through at the sexual health clinic.

    Do GPs need to do anything?

    No, patients can self-refer to the clinic. This is the easiest and quickest way to access PrEP.

    There may be occasions where patients request to see their GP for tests whilst taking PrEP if they cannot attend our clinic. The only required tests would be: a urine dip looking for proteinuria and a renal function test (creatinine/eGFR).
