Testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and infections

Dr Lerm provides a safe and supportive space for women with various gynaecological issues including sexually transmitted diseases and infections. Once diagnosed, comprehensive treatment and management of STDs and STIs can greatly impact a woman's self-esteem and confidence. Treatment may include antibiotics or antiviral medications, or long-term lifestyle changes. Because sexually transmitted disease doesn't always cause symptoms, it is essential to see your gynaecologist regularly to ensure reproductive health and prevent any complications that may arise due to untreated sexually transmitted diseases such as heart disease, cancer, infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease and pregnancy risks.
