Test + Treat

Know your status

If you are sexually active, then getting tested regularly is important. Getting tested every 3 months is recommended but if you have symptoms of an STI get to your local GP or sexual health clinic.

You may have acquired an STI (or HIV) without knowing because not everyone will exhibit symptoms, so this is why it’s so important to get tested regularly. Also, if you test positive for an infection, you can get treated and your doctor will advise you if you need to tell your previous sexual partners so that they can be tested as well. It doesn’t have to be a big deal to let them know either. Find out more about testing here.
