What are the symptoms of STIs?
Many STIs do not present symptoms in the early and sometimes even later stages of infection. Symptoms will also often vary between infection and person. Regular testing in Lanzarote with your local Better2Know clinic is the only way to keep yourself and your partners safe from STIs.
Some signs of an STI infection are:
- pain when urinating or during sex
- lumps or lesions on the genital area
- unusual discharge
- pain in the lower back and kidney area
- flu-like symptoms
- swelling of the penis and/or testicles
- sore throat
- body rashes
If you have one or any of these symptoms, you should test right away. You can book your appointment quickly and easily with Better2Know at one of our many clinics in Lanzarote. With our flexible and available booking options you can get your test and results within just a few days.

How are STIs diagnosed?
STIs in Lanzarote can only be diagnosed by testing. If you are worried about a sexual encounter you have had, or if you are presenting some STI symptoms, call your local Better2Know testing centre in Lanzarote now to get your testing appointment booked.
Sexually transmitted infections are tested for using a range of different testing methods, each dependent on the STI or STD that is being tested for. Tests can be run on simple blood samples, self-collection urine samples and swab samples. Each sample is collected by a highly trained doctor or nurse in Lanzarote.
Testing with Better2Know in Lanzarote will give you a fast and accurate diagnosis and excellent onward care and support.
Can I still have sex if I have an STI?
If you test positive, it is recommended that you stop all sexual activity until you have completed your full course of antibiotics prescribed for your infection. You might also want to have follow up tests as recommended by Better2Know or your doctor, and not have sex until these come back negative.
If you have tested positive for Herpes, HIV or HPV you should consult with your Better2Know doctor about best practice for safe sex as these viruses require different management and treatment and may need long term follow up testing. If you do have sex in this time, be sure to practice safer sex and let your partner know the risks.
STIs in Lanzarote are passed from person to person through bodily fluids. Although generally safe, kissing can also pass on STIs such as Herpes and HPV. With that in mind, it is always best to stop all sexual activity until you have finished your course of treatment.
Better2Know in Lanzarote can answer all your questions regarding your positive result, offering 24/7 advice and guidance alongside consultations with your Better2Know doctor.
