Did you have sex without a condom? If so, you may have contracted an STI. You may have unpleasant symptoms from it. But you don't have to. Get tested if you have had sex without a condom. At the Sexual Health Center (CSG) of GGD Flevoland you can get free and anonymous testing for STDs.
STI means sexually transmitted disease. An STI is contagious. Even if you have no symptoms, you can pass on an STI to someone. With medication, an STI usually passes.

Warn sex partners
If you have been found to have an STI, chances are your sex partners also have an STI. By warning your sex partner(s), you can prevent the STI from being passed on. We will help you do this or if you prefer not to do this yourself, we can warn your partners anonymously with your permission.
