About STI Clinic

Himerus Health is a private sexual health and STI / STD testing clinic in Dublin City. We offer STI screening tests, sexual health consultations and private Genito-Urinary Medicine care in the discreet and comfortable surrounds of the Meath Primary Care Centre (Camden Clinic) private consultants’ suites.

 

Many other services are co-located; GPs, dentists, physiotherapy, so it is therefore not obvious which service you are attending. Euromedics radiology onsite offers the benefit of same day radiology if required when attending our service.  As our service is delivered by Doctors and nurses highly trained and specialised in the area of sexual health.  
At Himerus Health STI Clinic in Dublin, patients can opt for a range of services from a Genito-Urinary Medicine consultation, routine STI screening to cervical check screening  (see cervicalcheck.ie).
 We uniquely also offer the option of self taken STI screens with our STI express service.  This service suits asymptomatic patients who would like a full screen without an examination and consultation.

At Himerus Health STI clinic you can be tested and treated for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, hepatitis, syphilis, genital warts, HPV, herpes, bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas vaginalis and many other genital conditions. Results are available and called/texted to you in 3-5 days. 

We also offer rapid HIV screening in Dublin with the results ready in under 20mins.

Why might someone attend the Himerus Health STI Clinic Dublin?

Peace of mind.  Many STIs are asymptomatic .  There is no way to know you do not carry one until you have a STI screen.  It is good practice to do this routinely or if you have a new partner.

Genito-Urinary symptoms.  An unusual discharge, rash, lump, ulcer, bleeding, discomfort or pain may be some of the symptoms that patients may want to discuss with our consultants.  These symptoms may indicate an infection or may be due to some other pathology that needs investigated.

Genital skin conditions.  Our consultants have a special interest in this area and most of these conditions are not related to STIs but can be treated at Himerus Health.

Smear testing. We are registered with cervical check and can provide both free and private cervical screening, and HPV typing. To check if you are eligible for a free screen go to cervicalcheck.ie and enter your PPS number.

Vaccinations. As with all aspects of medicine prevention is better than cure and at Himerus Health we promote the use of vaccinations in "at risk" groups.

Private HIV care.  Many patients with HIV choose to have their HIV care in a discreet and private setting. At Himerus Health you can have all of your HIV care, including routine bloods and anti-retroviral therapy provided.
