Men should hold their urine for one hour prior to giving a sample to increase the accuracy of testing. Express STI tests for Chlamydia/Gonorrhoea, HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphilis.

PREP is available FREE in a pharmacy once a prescription is obtained. Initial consultation €200, subsequent consultations which include an STI screen, €150.
Some patients may take event based PREP and some may take daily PREP. If you would like to discuss PREP with our consultants book a PREP consultation which will involve: an STI screen, rapid HIV test, renal profile, urinalysis, PREP education and a prescription.

Once diagnosed with HIV many patients may choose 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.
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 you are next due one it is possible to have a private smear at Himerus Health.
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. Often these patients require follow up consultations as their problems are of a more complex nature.
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.
