Women are yet more negative then men to talk about their sexuality, even if the test is made voluntarily by the woman. The number of those who understand the counselling as rather or very useful is not as high as the number of those who say their attitude toward talking about sexuality while testing for an STI is rather or very positive. The suggestions for further research is to examine the factors that influence the understanding of the counselling dependent of the sex/gender and also how the usefulness could be made more efficient for the persons testing themselves for an STI.
