Today is STIQ Day, an event that “has been launched to get people thinking about their sexual health and encourage more people to get regular sexual health checks.” 14th January was chosen to fall 2 weeks after the festive period and New Year parties. Sadly, STIs can often go undetected for long times. Some bacteria such as Chlamydia can be detected as long as 2 weeks after unprotected sex with an infected person.
A healthy baby comes from a healthy egg and healthy sperm. Unfortunately, STIs can contribute to people failing to conceive. At Harley Street Fertility Clinic, screening for STIs is compulsory prior to treatment.
As Latin saying goes, “Mens sana in corpore sano” – healthy mind in a healthy body.
