How do I know if I have an STI (sexually transmitted infection)?
If you are or have been sexually active, you may have an STI. Some STIs don’t produce symptoms other than infertility if left untreated, so you may not know if you have one. Symptoms, If present, may include pain, abnormal discharge and/or rash.If you are sexually active, please feel free to discuss STIs openly with one of our GPs.
