Do you have any concerns related to sexual health?

It is important you make an appointment in complete confidence at your nearest sexual health service.

Sexual health services can be found in your area and provide different services at NHS clinics:

  • Contraception advice
  • Emergency contraception
  • Free condoms
  • Testing for STDs/STIs
  • Sexual assault

Your nearest clinic will provide you with all the information you need regarding your enquiry.

It’s important you remember that you have nothing to be scared about – the sexual health services operate to help you, and that can only be done by being honest about what you are experiencing.

Having an understanding of sexual health – the good and the bad – is important for every person who is sexually active, or is thinking about becoming sexually active.

By being aware of sexual health issues such as STIs and STDs you are being cautious.

Remember that while not everyone will get a STI/STD, it is estimated that 832 people out of an 100,000 population had a STI in 2019.
