Singaporeans should get tested for STIs regularly, especially if they are sexually active with multiple partners or have unprotected sex.
The frequency of testing depends on individual risk factors, but it is recommended to get tested at least once a year.
The testing process usually involves providing a urine or blood sample, as well as a swab of the genital area or throat.
The samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Testing for some STIs, such as HIV, can also involve a physical exam and counselling session.
