Frequently asked questions FAQ
This section is for people who have received a message via the website from a sexual partner. The person who sent the message has been diagnosed with a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). They have used the website to advise you that you may be at risk of the infection. It is important to get a test because in most cases STIs are silent infections, meaning there are no signs or symptoms. The STIs listed on this website can be treated with antibiotic medicine. For more information see our STI Fact Sheets. Depending on an individual’s risk profile it may be important to test for other STIs at the same time. To find out more about these other tests go to Check Your Risk.
Any GP (local doctor) can test and treat you for an STI. Just print off the The letter to your Doctor relavant to your STI and take this to your appointment.
