Good sexual health means making sure you have the knowledge, skills and ability to make informed sexual choices and act responsibly to protect your health and the health of others.
Many Sexually Transmitted Infections have no symptoms, and people often don’t know that they are infected. Fortunately, many Sexually Transmitted Infections can be quickly and effectively treated. Everyone who is sexually active needs to be thinking about regular sexual health check-ups with their GP or sexual health clinic.
