Celebrations for New Year went with a bang and now it’s time to get back to work, but are you really ready?
December brings more than festive spirit and gifts of plenty, in fact it holds the highest rates of STI cases for the entire year. Making January the busiest month for STI clinics.
London worst rates in country
London has had extremely high rates of recorded Gonorrhoea infections, and last year was revealed to hold the highest rates of all STI’s in the UK.
It is highly recommended to book a check up to clear any infections and give you peace of mind so you can start 2018 with confidence.
Even if you believe you practised safe sex over the holidays, and are experiencing an unexpected discharge, bleeding during or after sex, pain, itching, burning, sores, spots or lumps you must get checked out immediately.
Maybe you have no symptoms, getting checked is the right thing to do, not only for your own health but for any future partners.
Some infections or treatments can cause you to have a late period or even skip one, so it is also very important you do a pregnancy test to rule out any problems further down the line.
Leaving any concerns you may have for a long period of time can result in an infection lying dormant or causing massive health issues in the future.
These issues can cause infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease and a much greater risk of developing cancer.
Why take the risk?
