- sore throat

What is the difference between and STD and an STI?
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are ultimately the same thing. The term STI has become more commonly used, as the word infection is not as daunting as the word disease. By using the word infection in place of the word disease, people are encouraged to get tested more regularly and to not be afraid of the result.
If you develop symptoms such as itching, soreness when urinating or blisters on the genital area, these are good indicators that you have an STI. Ignoring these symptoms can increase your chances of further serious health complications.
That is why regular testing in Carballo is imperative especially after a new sexual encounter. Better2Know’s wide range of sexual health testing in Carballo will provide you with the information you need, whether you have an STI, STD or even nothing!
How often should I get tested for an STI?
You should get tested for an STI every time you have an encounter with a new sexual partner. It can be easy to let life in Carballo take over and not prioritise your sexual health but protecting and maintaining your overall health as well as your sexual health will lead to a better understanding of yourself going forward.
Testing often in Carballo is easy with your local Better2Know testing centre. With flexible appointment times we can fit into your schedule with ease.
What should I do if I have an STI?
