I'm a woman that has sex with women — do I still need to get tested regularly?

Lesbians and bixesual women may technically be at lower risk in terms of HIV transmission, and women that have sex with women are often more complacent in terms of getting tested; this doesn't mean that they are any less likely to get infected! A Stonewall survey showed that half the lesbian and bisexual women they surveyed that got tested actually did have an STI. The message? GET TESTED!

Exchanging bodily fluids, and one-on-one sexual contact often carries the risk of transmitting STIs, regardless of sexuality. For an NHS page with more info, click here.
