Getting tested can be one of the most daunting things, but also one of the most easiest.

The procedure is pretty simple, you take a urine sample, a internal swab for both men and women and a quick blood test, all of which covers most STIs.

All tests are free from a local Gum Clinic or if your under 25 you can access the Brook clinics all over the country.

Anytime is good to get tested, but you should always get tested if:

  • you start a new relationship
  • want to stop using condoms in a relationship
  • you have sex without a condom
  • you break up with someone

You can now discover more about testing via clicking this link GUM Clinics.
