You need to have a sexual health check:

  • If you or your partner have other sexual partners
  • If you notice pain on passing urine or during sex
  • If you have lumps or sores on the genital area, an unusual discharge, rash, itchiness or smell, or if your sexual partner has these symptoms
  • If you have had unsafe sex (sex without a condom)
  • If you are worried for any reason

Important things to remember about your sexual health:

  • You may have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) without having any symptoms
  • Some STIs can affect fertility in men and women
  • STIs can be transferred from a mother to her baby and cause problems during pregnancy or after birth
  • Being in a long term relationship is no guarantee you can't have an STI as you can have an STI for months or years
