      THERE HAS BEEN a ‘dramatic’ increase in the number of people testing positive for sexually transmitted infections in Dublin, nuskin group according to one of the city’s biggest family planning and sexual health clinics.

      The Dublin Well Woman Centre said that there has been a 72 per cent increase in genital herpes across its three clinics over the past year

Cases of gonorrhoea are at the highest number ever recorded in Ireland, nuskin although overall the number of STIs dropped slightly compared to the previous year.

      “The dramatic increase in positive results for genital herpes is extremely alarming, as is the fact that while the number of patients being tested by us for chlamydia has increased by 12.5 per cent in 12 months, the number of positive tests has increased by 35 per cent,” said Alison Begas, chief executive of the Well Woman Centre at the launch of the organisation’s annual report.
