STI tests: How often is too often?

How often should you get tested for sexually transmitted infections in the absence of symptoms – and what would be overdoing it? Does every infection cause illness? What are the consequences of frequent courses of antibiotics? Would it make sense to take them preventatively? How can people with frequently changing sexual partners deal with the issue sensibly and responsibly?
We’ll present the current scientific debate on these topics and warmly invite you to contribute your experiences, strategies and questions.
The presentations will be in German, but questions and remarks in English are very welcome.
