Do I need sexual health care?
- Have you had sex with someone new?
- Have you got concerns?
- Have you had sex without a condom?
- Has someone you've had sex with told you they have an infection?
- Did your condom fall off or break during sex?
- Do you or your partner have sex with other people?
- Do you share needles, syringes and spoons to inject drugs?
It's important you have a check up. Many sexually transmitted infections don't have symptoms, the best time to do a check up is two weeks after you've had sex with someone new.
It's important you use a condom or not have sex until you have been checked out and have the all clear from your doctor or nurse.
Why attend a check-up?
The following symptoms may indicate a sexually transmitted infection and we would suggest you get a check-up or ring for further advice.
- A discharge from the penis or vagina
- Pain passing urine
- Pain in the lower stomach, genitals or when having sexual intercourse
- Lumps or swelling in the genital area
- Genital sores or ulcers
- Genital rashes
- Anal symptoms relating to sexual intercourse e.g. discharge or irritation
- Not all sexually transmitted infections have symptoms. We advise a routine check-up 2 weeks after unprotected sex or if you have had a change in partner.
If you have any of the symptoms listed above, you need to speak to a doctor or nurse today. It's important you use a condom or not have sex until you have been checked out and have the all clear from your doctor or nurse.
