When should I get tested?
If you work in the sex trade, you should make regular appointments for an STI test. The tests are free and anonymous. You reduce the risks of contracting an STI by always using a condom, but a condom can break. Also, get tested when you have symptoms or have been warned.
In any case, we advise you to get tested for STIs at least twice a year. You can also get a free Hepatitis B vaccination from the Municipal Health Service (GGD).
