STI stands for Sexually Transmitted Infection.
Do you think you might have an STI?
Have you had unprotected sex or think your partner has?
Do you want to be sure you’re clean before having sex with a new partner?
Whatever the questions you’re asking yourself or even if it’s that niggling feeling in the back of your mind telling you something isn’t right it’s always good to have a check. At Corfield doctors surgery we don’t just test you but we’ll give you advice about prevention and, if necessary, personalised treatment to suit your needs.
Testing is easy and can be done in many ways such as checking your urine and blood or taking swabs from the infected site.
Even if symptoms don’t show you can have the infection, regardless of your sexuality.
The only way to be sure that you’re clear of any STI’s is to have a test. They’re very easy for the patients and are very accurate. If left untreated, the infections may cause long term health problems and even infertility.
Some of the most common STI’s include:
- Genital warts
- Genital Herpes
It is very important to let your partner(s) know about the condition
