If you think you have an STI

  • Don't panic. You simply need to get tested so you can get the right treatment.
  • Many people with STIs don't get symptoms, so it's worth getting tested even if you feel healthy.
  • To find your nearest sexual health service, speak to your GP, call Sexual Health Hertfordshire on 0300 008 5522 or visit their website.
