Any time you have sexual contact with a new partner and/or a partner whose STI status you do not know, you may be at risk of catching an STI. It's always a good idea to be tested for STIs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV whether you have symptoms or not. If you have symptoms, you should be seen right away by a health care provider so that they can order the appropriate tests for you and especially from the appropriate sites.
Hope this helps.
