If you value your health – sexual and otherwise – regular STD (or, more accurately, STI) testing is crucial. While frequency may vary from person to person, depending on factors such as lifestyle, preferences and risk-aversion, all sexually active folks should make room in their calendar testing.
However, even if you’re eager to get tested regularly, you may find it confusing and tricky to navigate. First of all, it isn’t always clear how to get tested efficiently or what the most budget-friendly options are.
On top of that, in some areas healthcare providers offer little help. After all, many of us are asymptomatic and want to get tested simply to have peace of mind. And anyway, what should we even get tested for if all we want is a routine check-up?
In an attempt to answer those burning questions, I decided to create a guide on getting tested for the Big 5* in Warsaw, Poland. It will come in handy for anyone living in Warsaw who wants to get tested.
In this guide, you will read about the best testing options Warsaw has to offer (including the cheapest and simplest ones) as well as a guide on how to get all your important tests done in the most time-efficient way possible.
The guide is available in Polish as well as in English:
