This Valentine’s weekend, nothing says I love you like NOT spreading an STI!

February 12th is Sexual and Reproductive Health Day in Canada.  This year, we are drawing attention to the increasing rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Statistics reported to the Public Health Agency of Canada indicate that rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis continue to be a public health concern in Canada and, while 15 to 24 year olds continue to bear the highest burden of these infections, there has been a significant increase in these STIs among middle-age adults (40-59 years) over the past decade.

Don’t give your lover an STI for this Valentine’s weekend!  Why not get tested together?

Our 4th episode in the “How To Be A Sexpert” podcast series covers the subject of STI Testing.  The podcast shows the experience of two of our Sexperts as they go for STI tests.

Have a safe and happy Valentine's weekend, everyone!
