How do I know if I have an STI (sexually transmitted infection)?

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.
I’m embarrassed about seeing a Doctor. What happens if I think I have an STI?
If you’re concerned that you have an STI, you should make an appointment to see a GP to be screened. In some cases, you may only need to provide a urine sample to test for this. If your concerns or symptoms are more complex, you may require an examination which your GP can perform. If you do have an STI, your GP can provide you with the appropriate treatment and advice.
