A recent survey by Balance Activ found that British women knew more about beauty treatments than sexual health.  67% people knew what a bikini wax was, but only 39% had heard of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) which can lead to infertility and an increased chance of catching other STIs.

So here are some questions to see how much you know: (answers to follow on Monday)

  1. What is the most common STI in the UK?
  2. How long after you have had sex do you have to wait before testing for HIV?
  3. How many people in the UK are thought to be HIV positive?
  4. Which STIs can you be vaccinated against?
  5. Why is Gonorrhoea becoming harder to treat?
  6. What sample do you need to test for Syphilis?
  7. Which STI is known as “The Clap”?
  8. How long does it take to get herpes results when you do not have any symptoms?
