Many people who have an STI (sexually transmitted infection) do not have any symptoms and therefore do not even know they have one. If left untreated some STIs can cause long-term problems such as infertility.
Did you know?
If you test positive for an STI you will need to tell your sexual partners so they can be tested also. If you test negative for an STI it is advisable that you protect yourself and future partners by practising safe sex and by having regular STI screenings. Treatments for STIs can range from antibiotics to creams or antiviral drugs.
