    I need to get a test done, where is it you go to get one done?
    - Get a referal from your GP
    - Go to your local GUM clinic
    - Go to your local Brooks clinic, which you can find online here.

    They were talking about it on City Hospital a few weeks ago. Most of the time, lads can get away with a urine test, but it's probably best to get the swab done too.
    I've never had a test myself, but us ladies have to have regular ones when we get to a certain age anyway to detect signs of cervical cancer and the like.

    We should be more open about things like this... it's a shame people have trouble talking about it. It's a serious issue, and the consequences of STI's are not nearly advertised enough.

    I say, if you're in doubt have a test. It's a moment's discomfort that could save a lifetime of problems...

    So basically, I get an appointment with my gp, and then he sends me to a GUM clinic?

    you don't need to see your GP, you just turn up at a clinic, or phone before to see when they have a drop in session. (why did that sound slightly not right?)

    Hey I'm not embarassed, I once demonstrated how to put a condom on as a presentation. Not sure what the cleaners thought though - we left umpteen different condoms in the bin - male, female, different stregnths.

    No you can just walk into any GUM clinic/Brooks clinic and someone will be there to see you.

    I suggested going to your GP so they can talk you through all the procedures and protocol, as you seemed unsure, and they will also assess whether it is necessary to go to a GUM clinic.

    using a 'condom demonstrator' for the male one, basically a glass **** that sits on the table so you have 2 hands free.

    Mmmm...cervical smears...they've raised the starting age to 25 though And they only test for cancerous changes (which can be initiated by the human papilloma virus, which is an STI, but not exclusively) they're not a full STI test - for that they use vaginal swabs and you have to get them organised yourself.
