STI home testing kits

Author: The STI Clinic


Just as you take care of your general health, your sexual health is also extremely important.

You may have had a risky sexual encounter recently, or you may have just changed your sexual partner. In either of these cases if you do not have time or are embarrassed to go to a sexual health clinic to test for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), you should not put testing off altogether.

This is valid even if you do not have any symptoms. STIs can be asymptomatic (meaning that the infections can be present in the body; even if you do not feel any different).

So why should you test anyway?

Testing is recommended because STIs can have serious complications if left untreated. Chlamydia for example, the most common STI, could lead to infertility or pelvic inflammatory disease in women. However, if it is detected, it is very easy to treat with antibiotics.

If you need to get tested but do not have time to go to the sexual health clinic, then you may want to know that there is an easier way. is the easier way.
