If you have had sex without a condom, it’s a good idea to get yourself checked for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Most STIs, such as chlamydia, are treatable and the earlier you get tested and start treatment, the better. You can get tested at your GP or at the iCaSH clinic at Kings Chambers. You can make an appointment by calling 0300 300 3030.
You might feel embarrassed, but there's no need – the staff at these clinics are used to testing for all kinds of infections. It's their job and they won't judge you. They will do their best to explain everything to you and make you feel at ease.
The service is free and confidential, even if you are under 16.
If you’re aged between 16 and 24, you can also get free online chlamydia testing.
If you have any concerns about your sexual health or want to find out more about sexual health services, including STI testing, visit the iCaSH website or call 0300 300 3030.
