Chlamydia is a very common STI that is often symptomless so people frequently do not realise they have it. It's very easily treated with a course of antibiotics. If left untreated though, it can cause serious complications in the reproductive system, including fertility problems and, in women, pelvic inflammatory disease and increased risk of miscarriage. You can buy treatment through our service or get treated by going to your local sexual health clinic.
Gonorrhea is another very common STI. It often does not have any obvious symptoms, but where there are symptoms these normally include pain when urinating and a vaginal or penile discharge. It's easy to treat with antibiotics, but if left untreated it may cause serious health complications, like fertility problems and, in women, pelvic inflammatory disease. If you’re diagnosed with gonorrhoea you will need to contact your local sexual health clinic for treatment.
Genital herpes is a viral infection. It's caused by the herpes simplex or cold sore virus. It may result in painful blisters on the genitals. There's no cure but symptoms and outbreaks can be managed by using an anti-viral medication. You can buy treatment through our service or get treated by your GP or your local sexual health clinic.
Mycoplasma affects both men and women and is caused by a bacteria. It does not often cause symptoms and so can be left untreated as the person may not know they have it unless tested. If treatment is required it can be treated easily with a specific antibiotic.

Ureaplasma is a bacteria which is commonly found in the sexually active population.
