HIV and other STI risks in different ways of having sex

Anal intercourse

Anal intercourse without a condom has the highest risk of HIV and other STIs.

Oral sex

Oral sex has a very low risk of HIV. Other STIs can transmit more easily.


There are many ways of having sex and HIV and STI risks vary between the practices.

How to get tested?

You can get tested for HIV and other STIs in our Checkpoint services. You can also get tested with STIs through your local health centre, occupational or student health care and the clinic for venereal diseases.
