I had unprotected sex but I don’t have any symptoms, do I need to come in?
Yes, but you may need to wait a few days. You can have an STI without having any symptoms. This means the infection can damage your body without you even knowing about it. It also means you could accidentally pass on an STI to someone else. If you think you have an STI, the only way to be sure is to see a doctor or a nurse.
If you don’t have any symptoms, we advise waiting 14 days since the last time you had unprotected sex before coming to one of our clinics for STI testing. Depending on the infection, it can take several days from being infected before our tests are able to detect it.
