Sexual health check-up for men who are into men

What is a sexual health check-up for men who are into men?

It means diagnostics and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and HIV and related consultation service for men who have sex with men (MSM). You may not think of yourself as at risk for diseases but the regular health check-ups of every sexually active person should include getting tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

MSM sexual health check-up is confidential and free of charge regardless of your health insurance status!

By getting tested you can keep your health under control

Many sexually transmitted infections may go without any visible symptoms and complaints. Nonetheless, such an infection may affect your health and you may infect your partners. That is why it is a good idea to get tested regularly, even if you have no complaints. Testing is the only sure way to find out whether or not you have been infected.

If you are at high risk for getting HIV (for instance, you have a lot of casual partners), you might want to consider using pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). This medicine significantly reduces the risk of becoming infected when exposed to HIV.
