STI full-screening test
Testing regularly for sexually transmitted infections means that you can treat any infections you do have and avoid passing them on to other people. Some STIs will make you more ill the longer you have them, so testing often means you are protecting your health.
Where can I get tested?
You can get a test for STIs at a range of sexual health clinics (sometimes called GUMs) across Liverpool City Region.
You can also test at your GP or community services.
What are STI tests like?
Some STI tests will involve taking urine samples or swabs from the vagina, penis, anus or throat. You can usually do these swabs yourself in private, so you don’t need to worry about undressing in front of somebody else if you’re uncomfortable with this. The doctor or nurse will explain what tests you need, and why.
