Where to get an STI test

Many STIs have no signs or symptoms. If you're having sex, it's a good idea to get regular STI tests.

Why get an STI test?

STIs are common and can affect anyone who is having vaginal, anal or oral sex.

Because STIs don’t always have symptoms, you can have one without even knowing it. STIs can cause long term health impacts if you don't get them treated.

This makes regular STI testing important – it’s the only way to know if you have one. The good news is that most STIs are easy to treat, especially if you get diagnosed early.

STI testing is a normal part of a healthy sex life
