If you are sexually active we recommend that you get yourself tested for STD’s annually or on change of sexual partner.
If you think you have a sexually transmitted disease and do not feel as though you can go to your GP, there are many genito urinary medicine (GUM) clinics locally where you can be anonymous. They will give you the support and help that you and your partner need.
These clinics offer a confidential service. If it is your first visit you will be asked to fill in a form with basic information about yourself. Information given here is not passed on to your GP unless you want it to be. You do not have to give your correct details if you do not wish, but remember what you did give.
The service that they provide will also be non-judgmental and this makes it easier for you to be truthful about how you may have put yourself at risk. They will not judge your lifestyle but they will advise you on how to keep yourself safer while having sex. If you do not tell the truth, you may not get the test that you require to see if you have any infections.
