Your sexual health: where to find out more information

Contraception is just one part of your sexual health. You may need to see a doctor if you have concerns around other aspects of your sexual health including sexually transmitted infections (STIs), unwanted pregnancy, cervical screening and more.

Many women with STIs do not get any symptoms. This shows that it is worth getting tested even if you feel just fine. If you think you have an STI, the earlier you are tested, the sooner treatment can begin if needed.

It is important that you prioritise your sexual health not only when it comes to contraception. To find out more about face to face sexual health services local to you, visit:
