You may not feel very confident about sex, or you might not have had much information about sexual relationships at school. You may have done something you are worried about, and feel you would like to get it checked out. We ALL need support from time to time, and people who work in sexual health services are highly trained – they’ve seen it all before so there’s no need to be embarrassed!
A sexual health clinic is a place you can go for help and advice about sexually transmitted infections (STI’s).
Condoms help protect against a range of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), including Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Genital Warts, Herpes and HIV (the virus that causes AIDS).
HIV stands for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV attacks the body’s immune system, the body’s defence against disease, so that it can no longer fight off certain infections.
