Drop-in clinics for STI checks

Family Planning WA Sexual Health Services in Northbridge is offering drop-in clinics for men wanting to be tested for sexually transmissible infections.

‘It’s a good idea to get tested every year, though men may want to consider more frequent testing if they start new relationships,’ spokeswoman Rebecca Smith said. ‘Men who have an STI often don’t have any symptoms, and therefore don’t realise they have one ” if left untreated however, some STIs can have serious consequences.’

Clinics will be offered at 70 Roe Street, on Monday, June 9 to Thursday, June 12 from 1.30pm to 4.30pm each day. Cost is $15 or $5 with concession. Call 9227 1444.
