Getting tested and treated for STIs is straightforward and confidential. Most infections can be cured. Swindon Sexual Health Services specialise in testing and treatments for STIs. Find sexual health services near you.
At some of our clinics you need to make an appointment and others are drop-in clinics (which means you can just turn up). You might feel embarrassed, but there’s no need – the staff at these clinics are used to testing for all kinds of infections. It’s their job and they won’t judge you. They will do their best to explain everything to you and make you feel at ease.
Sexual Health MOT
If you have ever had sex there is a chance you will have picked up an infection. Many STIs do not show any symptoms until years later so you will not know that you have it unless you have a test. If you are sexually active you should get tested at least once a year or when you meet a new partner.
The tests are quick and painless and any infection is usually easy to treat. If left untreated infections could become painful, more difficult to treat, lead to infertility and long-term health issues.
So, if you have ever had sex, you should get tested every now and again to make sure everything’s healthy. We recommend starting every new year with a sexual health test so you can start the new year with peace of mind and a clean bill of health.
