This Valentine’s Day, Share Affection – Not An Infection

Testing together, particularly at the start of a new relationship, could prevent yourself and your partner from discovering STIs further down the line. By taking responsibility for your sexual health, you’ll protect each other from possible symptoms and open up a more honest conversation that you and your partner can both benefit from.

There are also some risks with undiagnosed STIs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea causing long term conditions – including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), inflammation of the testicles, and infertility.
