What if I have an STI?

If you test positive for an STI, you will be offered treatment. The type of treatment will depend on what STI you have. If your STI is not treated, it can be passed on to your sexual partner (or partners).

Do I have to tell my partner if I have an STI?

You should tell your partner (or partners) if you have an STI, so they can be offered testing and treatment.

It is important that all of the people you have recently been in sexual contact with are given the option to be tested and treated. Your doctor or nurse will discuss this with you.

When can I have sex again?

You will have to wait until you have completed the treatment before having sex again. Your doctor or nurse will explain this to you.

Having had an STI once does not protect you from getting it again. It is important to make sure that your partner (or partners) have been tested and treated before having sex with them again.
