Let'sGetChecked, Ireland's leading provider of personal health testing, has just revealed some very shocking findings.

Of all the people who purchased their home-testing kits for STIs this summer, 15.2% tested positive for at least one STI. This is a 13.4% increase upon their last findings in May which proves that summer lovin' is well and truly a real thing.

Unsafe summer lovin', evidently.

Among the 15.2%, 82% reported that they had noticed no symptoms which means they could've been carrying said STI around for years completely unaware.

The moral of the story: get checked.
