Sexual Health

Poor sexual health can have a negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing. For example, this includes sexually transmitted infections (STIs) - like chlamydia, which can lead to infertility, HIV and unplanned pregnancy

STI testing

If you have had sexual contact with someone without using a condom, you may be at risk of an STI. Not all STIs have symptoms so if you think you may have been at risk it is important to get tested.

Contraception

There are many different types of contraception available. Condoms are the only form of contraception that can protect you from both unplanned pregnancy and STIs, including HIV. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type so it's important to choose one that best suits your relationship and lifestyle. Your GP will be able to advise you on the different types of contraception. You can also access information on the different types of contraception via the Family Planning Association website.
