‘I have been single for 6 months after my relationship ended. I have now met my dream man and we have been dating for a month. We’d both like to have sex. I’m worried I may give him a STI, as my expartner cheated on me. Is it a good idea to get a STD check before we get into bed?’. This is one of the most common enquiries we have, and a very sensible question to ask. Many people opt to be checked for sexually transmitted diseases before starting a new relationship. We know that some STI’s such as chlamydia, the genital wart virus (HPV), Herpes and other infections sometimes don’t cause symptoms and silently spread between people.
We would recommend that couples newly together get tested for infections. It’s best to test!
Our clinic offers private, confidential STD tests with a Specialist doctor and test results return overnight.
