Empty pockets, empty house, and a hefty hangover. Have you been left with more than you bargained for this New Year?
The new year never starts the way you wanted it to. If you have had unsafe sex you may have been left with more than you expected.
STIs hit a peak around the Christmas period, due to high levels of alcohol consumption and weekly partying.
Towards the end of 2018, reports highlighted rising numbers of STIs in and around London. Adding to this crisis, many STI clinics have been shut down, causing many to delay treatments or diagnosis.
Because of these factors we are urging people to come forward and be tested this January. Even if you have no symptoms.
“If you’ve had unsafe sex, get checked.”
We are on hand to diagnose and treat any “nasties” you may have picked up over the Christmas period.
If you have any of the symptoms listed below it is incredibly important to get checked straight away, and not perform any sexual act before doing so.
- Vaginal or penile discharge
- Genital itching
- Pain with intercourse
- Pain with urination
- Warts or growths in genital area including anal
- Blisters or sores in the genital area or mouth
It is also important to be honest with the person you have had intercourse with, even if you feel you may have contracted it from that person. They may not show any signs of ill health and could be unaware, so try not to judge or blame. No one likes to face an STI, so the best way to deal with it is with maturity and quickly.
If you cannot make it to your local clinic, why not order a online test kit!.
We provide online testing, making it easy and convenient for you to be tested.
