Walk in STD testing

  • An infection you can get by having sexual contact with someone who is infected.
  • This can be vaginal, oral or anal sex, although other types of touching can pass some STIs – for example, some STIs (such as Herpes and HPV) can be spread from person to person by touching the infected areas of someone’s body and then touching your own genitals (private parts).
  • If a person has a sexually transmitted infection they may have no symptoms and not know they have the infection, but they can still spread the infection to others.
  • There are many different STIs and all may have serious consequences if left untreated.
