In this episode we explore the history of genito-urinary complaints, including the difficulty of correctly distinguishing between venereal diseases and urinary ones. We’ll uncover how, particularly in the 1700s and 1800s, suspicion abounded and women especially were judged for their moral character when diagnoses were being made.

Then we talk to Professor Claudia Estcourt and Dr Andrew Winter, both genito-urinary specialists, about their work and their research.
