So you’ve had unprotected sex and you’re worried you might be infected. Not all STIs have visible symptoms so even if you think you’re fine after having unprotected sex, please get tested. There are many types of STIs. Some are curable, some are not, while some have horrific symptoms or none at all. But they have one thing in common: you really wouldn’t want any of them. Always protect yourself against infection when having sex and always go straight to your doctor or another qualified healthcare provider if you have any symptoms, or think you might have been exposed to the risk of infection. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
