Better2Know provides private STI testing services throughout the Middle East, including Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and across the United Arab Emirates. Better2Know’s private sexual health clinics in the Middle East offer a wide range of STI tests and screens that will detect a variety of sexually transmitted infections. These include HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Herpes I/II, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and many others.

STIs are transmitted or acquired through unprotected sexual contact. This includes oral, anal or vaginal intercourse. You are most at risk of infection if you engage in sexual activities without the use of a barrier protection method.


Penetrative sex is not the only way to transfer sexually transmitted infections; some STIs are contracted through skin-to-skin contact alone.

Symptoms of an STI

You may not experience any signs of a sexually transmitted infection, particularly if you have only recently been exposed. Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are two commons STIs that often show few symptoms in infected individuals. Both can cause issues with fertility if left undiagnosed and untreated. This is why it is important to regularly receive STI testing even if you are not exhibiting any symptoms.

If symptoms are present, they can include:

  • Urinary discomfort, including pain or a burning sensation
  • Blemishes such as sores, warts, lesions, ulcers or any other breaks in the continuation of skin
  • Itching, redness or swelling in or around the genital or anal areas
  • Yellow/green discharge that may be accompanied by a foul odour
  • Unusual bleeding such as in urine
  • An increased need to urinate more frequently
  • Flu-like symptoms including sore throat, fever and fatigue.

STIs that are left undiagnosed may eventually trigger further health issues such as epididymitis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and infertility. Some STIs may require long-term management. In these circumstances, early access to treatment can help prevent the rapid deterioration of your personal health.

Other STIs may be curable but can cause irreversible damage to your body. Therefore, it is important to get tested as soon as possible if you have any concerns about your STI status, or if you have neglected your sexual health.
