No surprises this Valentine's!
It's not always simple to tell if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and you might not get any symptoms - make sure you and your partner are protected and remember to test regularly.
Did you know that chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STI in England and Wales? And what's more, 70% of women and 50% of men do not have any symptoms before their diagnosis. But don't worry, it is very easy and simple to get tested - and you don't even have to leave your house to do it!
If you would prefer to test yourself at home, you can order a free STI testing kit here and you will get the results sent straight to your phone!
If you would prefer to be seen by a medical professional, visit The Northern Contraception, Sexual Health and STI service.
