Sexual Health

Sexual and reproductive health services

Anyone who has unprotected sex can catch a sexually transmitted infection (STI) no matter what their age, so it's important to find out how to avoid infection, how to get tested or treated, and how to protect your sexual health.

STIs affect one in nine people and are caused by viruses and bacteria passed on during sexual intercourse. Many are easily treated, but some (including HIV) are not. If you are experiencing symptoms you should attend one of the Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) clinics with 'walk-in' facilities at the following locations:

Many STIs have no symptoms  in this case you should attend CNWL. Their services include screening for sexually transmitted infections including HIV and access to a range of routine contraceptive methods, including LARC.
