It is important to get tested for STIs if you are sexually active, because it keeps you and other people safe. However, sometimes people decide not to get tested, often because they don’t have the right information about STIs and how they are spread, or because they might be worried about what people will think of them if they test positive for an STI. People might not get tested because:• They don’t have symptoms, so they think they don’t need to• They think it’s too much effort• They are worried about what will happen if they test positive for an STIHowever, avoiding testing for whatever reason puts you at risk of getting and passing on STIs, and the good news is it’s easier than ever to get tested.
