Have you had sex with someone new?

Has someone you've had sex with told you they have an infection?
The following symptoms may indicate a sexually transmitted infection and we would suggest you attend for a check-up or ring for further advice:
A discharge from the penis or vagina
Pain passing urine
Pain in the lower stomach, genitals or when having sexual intercourse
Lumps or swelling in the genital area

Anal symptoms relating to sexual intercourse e.g. discharge or irritation
Not all sexually transmitted infections have symptoms. We advise a routine check-up 2 weeks after unprotected sex or if you have had a change in partner.
