Many weeks after having unprotected sex, I have no signs or symptoms of being infected by an STBBI. Therefore, I don’t need to be tested.
I have been successfully treated for an STBBI. I acquired lifelong protection.
Chlamydia and gonorrhea can be successfully treated
Syphilis is an old disease, now rarely observed in Canada
In Canada, I can be held criminally responsible if I have sex without disclosing that I have an STBBI.
