As a leading provider of STD testing services in Malaysia, we are committed to helping our patients maintain their sexual health and well-being.

STDs are a significant public health concern in Malaysia, with a prevalence rate of 22.5%. Early detection and treatment are essential for preventing long-term health complications, making STD testing an important part of maintaining sexual health. We offer a variety of STD testing services at Hisential Bangsar Clinic, including blood tests, urine tests, swab tests, and physical exams.

Our team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing accurate, reliable, and confidential testing services to our patients. We understand that STD testing can be a sensitive and sometimes uncomfortable topic, which is why we take the time to listen to our patients and answer any questions they may have. Our staff is trained to provide compassionate and non-judgmental care to every patient who walks through our doors.

We offer a variety of testing options to meet the needs of our patients, including same-day or rapid testing options for those who require quick results. Rapid testing options are usually more expensive than traditional testing methods, but they are as accurate and reliable. We also offer confidential online testing options, which can provide results within a few days. After downloading our Hisential App, patients can complete an online questionnaire and consult our doctor. The patient then goes to one of our over 20 partner sample collection centres throughout Malaysia and drops of the sample for laboratory analysis. The results are typically available within a few days and can be accessed via our app after a follow up consult with out doctor.

At Hisential Bangsar Clinic, we understand that the cost of STD testing can be a barrier for some patients. That’s why we offer affordable testing services to ensure that our patients can access the care they need. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of their financial situation.

We recommend that sexually active individuals get tested for STDs at least once a year. Individuals who have multiple sexual partners, engage in high-risk sexual behaviors, or have a history of STDs should be tested more frequently. It is also important to get tested after a potential exposure to an STD, such as unprotected sex or sharing needles. Some STDs may not show any symptoms, which is why regular testing is important.

Pregnant women should also be tested for STDs, as some infections can be transmitted to the fetus during pregnancy or childbirth. Early detection and treatment of STDs during pregnancy can prevent long-term health complications for both the mother and the baby.

In conclusion, at Hisential Bangsar Clinic, we are committed to providing high-quality STD testing services to our patients in a safe, welcoming, and confidential environment. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality healthcare, and we strive to make our services affordable and accessible to all. Regular STD testing is an essential part of maintaining sexual health and well-being, and we encourage all of our patients to prioritize their sexual health by getting tested regularly.

What are the different types of STD tests?

At Hisential Clinic, we offer a range of STD testing options to help you stay healthy and protected. It’s important to understand the different types of STD tests available in Malaysia, as well as their accuracy and window periods, to ensure that you receive the appropriate testing and treatment. In this article, we’ll discuss the most common types of STD tests available in Malaysia and their accuracy and window periods, including the 3rd and 4th generation HIV tests.

Blood Tests

Blood tests are a common method of testing for STDs, including HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B and C. The accuracy of blood tests for STDs varies, depending on the type of infection being tested for. For example, HIV blood tests are highly accurate, with a window period of about up to 3 months from the time of infection for 3rd generation tests and 28 days for 4th generation tests. Syphilis blood tests are also highly accurate, but have a longer window period of about 3 months.

At  Hisential Clinic, we engage testing partners with advanced laboratory equipment to provide quick and accurate results for blood tests. Our medical professionals are trained to ensure that the blood test is done quickly, accurately, and with as little discomfort as possible. The turnaround time for laboratory blood tests is usually within 24 to 48 hours while the rapid test results will be available within 20 minutes in the clinic.

Urine Tests

Urine tests are another common method of testing for STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea. Urine tests are highly accurate, with a window period of about 2 to 5 days from the time of infection.

At  Hisential Clinic, we use advanced Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests to provide quick and accurate results for urine tests. All you need to do is drop us a sample of urine in the sterile container provided, and we take measures to ensure patient confidentiality and privacy throughout the testing process.

Swab Tests

Swab tests involve taking a sample from the affected area, such as the mouth, genitals, or rectum, and sending it to a laboratory for analysis. Swab tests are often used to diagnose STDs such as herpes and HPV. The accuracy of swab tests varies, depending on the type of infection being tested for. For example, swab tests for herpes are highly accurate, with a window period of about 2 to 4 days from the time of infection.

At  Hisential Clinic, our medical professionals are trained to ensure that the swab test is done quickly, accurately, and with as little discomfort as possible. We also take measures to ensure patient confidentiality and privacy throughout the testing process.

Physical Exam

A physical exam can also be used to diagnose some STDs, such as genital warts or herpes. During a physical exam, a medical professional will visually examine the affected area for signs of infection. The accuracy of a physical exam varies, depending on the type of infection being tested for.

At  Hisential Clinic, our medical professionals are trained to conduct thorough physical exams to identify any signs or symptoms of an STD. We take every precaution to ensure patient comfort and privacy during the exam.
