STI’s are not the usual topic of conversation on Valentine’s Day.   The day is a celebration of love and not sex.  However there have been a number of campaigns over the years to use Valentine’s Day to encourage people to come forward for testing.  Here are some of our favourites: 

  • Young People in Northamptonshire were offered a free pair of  Special Edition Valentine’s Day pants if they had a chlamydia test
  • A seven-seater bike in Southport was used to collect young people to take them to their chlamydia test on Valentine’s Day to draw in the crowds.  The participants all received a Valentine’s Card
  • Testing for the “love bug” in a road show in Osfordshire shopping areas and night spots
  • In London, Ontario the world record for STI testing (767 tests in 24 hours) was set on Valentine’s Day to encourage more people to get tested

Remember, if you have had unprotected sex, you could be at risk of any STI.  Make sure that your STI test is comprehensive.  If you want to stop using condoms in your relationship, then we have the most comprehensive range of STI tests available.  Our Platinum Screen tests for:
