This service will suit patients who are asymptomatic i.e. no unusual discharges, pains, lumps, bumps or lesions that would need to be examined or directly tested. It is more a “peace of mind” test.

Cervical Check Smear Testing

All women aged between 25-60years are entitled to free cervical cancer screening.  At Himerus health we also provide this service.  To find out if you are due your free smear and/or  to register go to cervicalcheck.ie.  If you are not due your smear with cervical check but would like a smear before your are next due one it is possible to have a private smear at Himerus Health.

Private HIV Care

Once diagnosed with HIV many patients may chose to see their consultant privately.  At Himerus Health our HIV experts, Professor Fiona Mulchay, Dr Aisling Loy and Dr Dominic Rowley can offer this service in comfortable and discreet surrounds.
Himerus Health  is located in a multipurpose health care centre which provides many health care services from dental care, radiology, physiotherapy, and GP services,  therefore it is not obvious what you are attending for.
Your consultation, medication, vaccinations, bloods and general health can be provided at Himerus Health.

Sexual Health Consultation

This involves a longer consultation than the routine STI screen, which is also carried out if indicated.
This consultation is generally for those patients who have an ongoing chronic genito-urinary medicine issue eg, vulvodynia, vulval/penile skin conditions, recurrent candidiasis, erectile dysfunction.
Often these patients require follow up consultations as their problems are of a more complex nature.

Wart Treatment

This generally consists of a combination of treatments often tailored to the individual's treatment response.
The consultants at Himerus Health STI clinic are experts  with a particular interest in this area.

Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)

PEP is “the morning after pill” for HIV.  PEP reduces the chance of becoming infected with HIV post a potential HIV exposure.  PEP treatment involves taking a combination of antiretroviral drugs for 28 days.  They can only be initiated within 72hours of an exposure.  Exposures may be via sexual exposure, a needlestick injury or splash form a potential source.  If the exposure occurs outside of clinic hours you should present to your nearest emergency department or GUM clinic for treatment as soon as possible.  If booking for PEP please ensure you are booked to see one of the Doctors.
