People who are sexually active should be tested for STIs regularly, even if you have only one sex partner, it is best to be tested to ensure that you are not infected.
Getting tested for STIs doesn’t mean you don’t trust your partner, it’s about taking responsibility and protecting everyone’s health.
If you have high-risk factors such as bareback sex, non-consensual sex, drug sex (chemfun), a history of other STIs, etc., you should be tested regularly every year.
Taking HIV as an example, testing every three months is the best. In addition, STIs such as Syphilis, HIV, Chlamydia and Hepatitis B may be transmitted from mother to fetus, so pregnant people and those who are planning to become pregnant are strongly advised to take comprehensive STIs testing.
