People urged to practise safer sex after rise in STIs in England

A new report by Public Health England shows numbers of new STI diagnoses in 2018 increased by 5% in comparison to 2017. The number of consultations at sexual health services, both in clinic settings and online, increased by 7% between 2017 and 2018. The rise in STIs is likely to be due to people not using condoms correctly and consistently with new and casual partners, and an increase in testing improving detection of the most common STIs.
