If you are worried that you may have got a sexually transmitted disease, because you have noticed typical symptoms or simply because you did not use sufficient protection during intercourse, have an examination as soon as possible. Women should visit a gynecologist. Men should make an appointment at an urologist or dermatologist. The Hamburg Centre for Aids and Sexually Transmitted Diseases CASAblanca, offers testing free of charge for men and women. In other big cities, public health authorities often offer similar services.
Abstain from sex until you have received your test results or completed medical treatment, or make sure to use sufficient protection. In case you have such an infection, usually your partner needs to be examined and treated as well. With some infections, this may also relate to past partners. If you should have further questions, we gladly offer you our support.
