But the fact remains that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a common problem in the UK. Around 400,000 new cases of STIs are reported to the NHS every year.
Please note that we do not provide treatments for STIs through our site. However, below you'll find some links to helpful information on STIs, and what to do if you think you have come into contact with one.

Occasionally symptomless, this bacterial infection is spread via unprotected sexual contact. The condition is treatable with antibiotics.
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a common sexually transmitted infection which causes blisters and sores to develop on or around the mouth, or in the genital region. The virus cannot be cured but it can enter periods of remission.
