Sexual Health

Your sexual health is not just about STIs (sexually transmitted Infection), it is also to do with the sex you have, who you have sex with and your emotions that go with this, they are all part of your sexual health. So don’t forget when talking to a professional, bring up any other issues you may be feeling as well.

Your health can be affected if you pick up an STI otherwise known as an STD (sexually transmitted disease). We have listed the main STIs in this section, but it does not cover every type and every symptom.

There is also no ‘one fix’ for them all: some can be cured, some can’t and some you can get immunisation for, so always consult with your sexual health clinic or G.U.M. to get the best advice possible.
