What can you do to stay protected?
With a 50% increase in gonorrhoea cases, and a 15% increase in syphilis cases, as well as high rates of other STIs, what can you do to stay protected?
Test, test, test
If you have an STI, it’s best to know so that you can get treated, and reduce the chance of you passing on any infections. We recommend that if you’re having sex with new partner(s) you should test as often as every 3 months, or at least once a year .You could get tested at your local sexual health clinic.
