Tested positive? Here’s what’s next ...

If you’ve had an STI test and your results came back positive, don’t panic. Most STIs can be treated quickly and easily, especially when you're diagnosed early.

Many STIs can be caught again – even after treatment. Make sure you keep using protection and get tested regularly.

  • Getting treated for an STI

    It’s important to start treatment straight away after getting a positive test, even if you haven't got any symptoms.

  • Telling someone you have an STI

    It might be awkward or scary to tell someone you have an STI, but it’s the right thing to do.
