If you are looking for more information about STIs, we have a range of resources available. If you would like to know more about the symptoms of a particular STI or what to do if you have an STI, you can find the answers here at HealthExpress.
Most STIs are spread through unprotected sexual intercourse. However, it is important to remember that this is not the only way to contract an STI. Some STIs, like genital herpes, can be passed on through skin contact with an infected area or sore. This means that you can catch an STI from anal or oral sex too, because STIs can make their way into your body through tiny cuts or tears on the skin's surface.
STIs are usually either viral or bacterial infections. Bacterial infections, such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea, are easily treated. Viral infections, such as genital herpes and genital warts, can be incurable and you could suffer recurrent symptoms throughout your life.
HealthExpress is able to offer treatment for the following STIs:
While the only way to prevent definitively against all STIs is to abstain from sex altogether, the safest thing you can do is to use a condom whenever you are having sex.
Regular testing is recommended if you are having regular sexual intercourse, particularly if you have sexual contact with different partners. Regular gynaecological or male genital examinations will also help to make sure that any infection is diagnosed and treated quickly.
