Sexual Health

It is important to talk to your doctor about your sexual health and have a regular check-up if you are having sex. The doctor will need to ask you some personal questions about your sexual practices in order to request the correct samples for STI testing.

STI swabs and blood tests are available at Northside Clinic. PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) is available for people who may have recently been exposed to HIV. Talk to your GP about how often you should attend for a STI check.

Transmen who have receptive vaginal sex with a male partner may require additional contraception as ovulation can occur whilst on testosterone therapy.

Condoms are recommended for all penetrative vaginal or anal sex with casual partners to prevent STIs.
