‘Elderly Daters Vulnerable To STIs’

Written 2 months ago by Mary Kate Findon


A Laois Doctor is warning elderly people that going through the menopause doesn’t protect them from catching an STI.

The Sexual Health consultant says Portlaoise Hospital’s clinic is at maximum capacity – with a 4 week waiting list.

Dominic Rowley is warning that many older daters are contracting diseases because they’re not using condoms as there’s no risk of pregnancy.

He’s urging anyone with symptoms to come along and get checked out – insisting there’s nothing that could shock them as they’ve seen it all.
