You could have an STI and never know it’s there…

WA Health’s couldihaveit website has recently been updated and is giving young people instant access to STI information and testing, including an online PathWest form. The new website features a contemporary design, eye-catching graphics and interactive features which appeal to a young audience. Visit www.couldihaveit.com.au

We know that many people with an STI do not show symptoms. So what if we thought about an STI as being the “third wheel” in a relationship…

A video has been launched on the couldihaveit website as part of a new campaign, to encourage young people to get tested if they are at risk.

The video has been designed based on the “third wheel” concept whereby a person’s STI is like the creepy guy in the corner that you don’t seem to notice, you can watch it now at www.couldihaveit.com.au

Website users are encouraged to complete the online self-risk assessment on the couldihaveit website if they think they are at risk. This will provide users with an opportunity to download a free pathology test form, which means that a person can take a test without seeing a doctor. 

Couldihaveit also includes the following features

  • Find a clinic: assists people in finding a sexual health clinic and/or Pathwest centre near them
  • Any Questions?: An opportunity for users to submit a sexual health related question and have it answered by a health professional

The website is easy to navigate on a mobile device and all features, including the take a free test, are mobile friendly. So scroll through the site, share the video and promote it to young people across WA!
