What You Need To Know About STIs

There are many different types of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) that are passed on during vaginal, anal and oral sex as well as through intimate contact with an infected partner.

Some STIs have no symptoms – you could have one and not even realise. The good news is that all STIs can be treated, although not all of them can be cured. If you have had sex without a condom, it is important to get tested.

You don’t have to come into our clinic to do this. You can get tested by requesting a postal kit that will be sent to your home – or an address you supply – discreetly packaged. Just click here.

If you would prefer to come into the clinic, book an appointment that suits you here.

If you are under 25 you can request a simple self-taken test for chlamydia from the Black Country Chlamydia Screening Programme.
