Get Ready for a Hot Summer!

As you get ready for summer, it is important to protect yourself from HIV and STIs.

Your body, your sexual health, your wellbeing – looking after them starts with you. Your sex life should be pleasurable and healthy!

It’s good sexual health practice to test for STIs regularly. This could mean every time you have a new sexual partner, or testing every three to six months. Using condoms helps lessen the likelihood of getting or passing on STIs and testing and treatment is easy and free.

The sooner someone with HIV starts treatment, the better it is for their health. People on treatment achieve an undetectable viral load, which means there's no more risk of transmission. Treatment is free to everyone in the UK.
