Sexually Transmitted Infections


A sexually transmitted infection (STI) can be passed from one person to another through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex. You can get or pass on an STI from whoever you’re having sex with. STIs can pass between men and women, and from women to women and men to men.

Many people with STIs don’t get symptoms, so it’s worth getting tested even if you feel fine. Many STIs can be cured with antibiotics. Some, such as HIV, have no cure, but can be treated to prevent them getting worse. It is important to get tested regularly for not only your own health and wellbeing, but also your partners. 


Getting tested

You can be tested for STIs at our clinics. Please visit our clinics page and find the one nearest to you. Some of our clinics provided limited testing, if you have symptoms or would like a full screening, please attend one of our hub clinics in either Chichester, Crawley or Worthing.
