Sexual Health




Description

Any sexually active person can catch a sexually transmitted Infection. Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have no symptoms even when the infection exists, and some people will have symptoms that will appear and then disappear.

Advice

Warning signs for STIs to look out for are:

  • Pain during sex
  • Burning sensation when urinating, or the need to urinate more often
  • Discharge from the penis or vagina or unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Rashes, sores, blisters, itchiness, lumps or pain in the genital area

It is advisable to use of condoms every time you have sex. Condoms are the only form of contraception to protect you against STIs and unplanned pregnancy at the same time.

You should seek medical attention even if you don’t have symptoms after unprotected sex if you think you may be at risk. You can visit your GP or your local sexual health clinic.
