It takes an average of 8-10 sessions, however the amount of sessions one will need varies depending on the specific needs, circumstances and established therapeutic goal.
Sexual Health and HIV
I am sexually active, what can I do to protect myself?
Being sexually active without any means of protection may expose a person to a number of sexually transmitted illnesses. Protective methods such as use of condoms or dental dams will help in preventing infections such as Syphillis, Gonorrhea, or HIV. While proven to be effective, these methods have to be used consistently and correctly to ensure of their efficiency. Most condoms are latex-based, thus choosing the right lubricant is essential. Water and silicone-based lubricants work well with latex-based condoms. Oil-based (e.g., baby oil or Vaseline) lubricants should not be used together with a latex-based condom to prevent breakage/damage of the condom.
In certain circumstances where condoms might not be ideal or is not an available option, PrEP should be considered as means to prevent HIV infection. You may read more about PrEP here. It is a regiment of one-pill containing Tenofovir-Emtricitabine taken either daily, or according to a schedule where it will provide an additional protective layer against HIV infection.
Regardless of any preferred protection methods, vaccinations should be considered. This includes vaccinations against Hepatitis A and B, and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
Contraceptions should also be taken into consideration for women who are sexually active with male partners. Depending on your needs and conditions, your doctor may present you with several options.
I had unprotected sex with someone recently, should I be worried?
Unprotected sex could lead to sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, Syphillis, or Gonorrhea. Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP – you can read about it here) can be prescribed to assist in preventing HIV infection should someone has been exposed to the virus, but it has to be taken within 72 hours of exposure. Discussion on further prevention plans against HIV can be considered by consulting your doctor about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).
Unprotected sex or failure of other contraceptive methods (e.g., condom breakage, missed contraceptive pill) could also lead to unplanned/unwanted pregnancy for women. The morning-after pill is a form of emergency contraception taken within 72 hours of exposure to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or after another birth control method fails. You may read more about it here. Please take note that taking contraceptive methods (e.g., pills, IUD, vaginal ring, patch) other than condoms do not protect you against sexually transmitted infections.
Medical Examination and Results
Do I need to fast before my screening/test?
Certain blood tests and procedures require 8 hours of fasting. Among the blood tests and procedures that require fasting would be:
* Blood sugar and cholesterol level
* Abdomen and pelvis ultrasound
You may contact us to get more information.
How long does it take to get my test results?
Most tests will take an estimated 3 working days. Sexually transmitted illnesses tests such as Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia will typically take 5 working days. Please do note that processing time might differ during certain periods of time, such as public holidays or during COVID-19 CMCO. Please contact us to find out more.
Can you email me the test results instead?
Our patients’ confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. We strongly encourage you to come back to the clinic to review your results. If you are currently away, unable to travel or would prefer to avoid traffic/parking hassles, you can review your results with a doctor online. Book an appointment here.
Will my health insurance cover the cost of home visit?
Home visit services are generally not covered under health insurance.
Can the doctor that attends to home visit issue MCs?
Yes, MC will be issued if it is clinically necessitated.
