Will you be mine?
It's not always easy to tell if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and you might not notice any symptoms at all. If left untreated, STIs can have long term effects on your health and wellbeing. Protect yourself and your sexual partners by using condoms and test regularly.
Have you been checked?
Did you know that chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection in England? 70% of women and 50% of men who have the infection will not have any symptoms. Left untreated it can lead to serious consequences such as infertility. The good news is that it's easy to get tested and treated...
