Sexual Health

Rainbow CondomsSome of us hate talking about it, some of us love talking about it, Sex….

It doesn’t matter if you are straight, lesbian or bisexual, anyone can be at risk of sexually transmitted diseases.  Research carried out by Stonewall (www.stonewallorg.uk) suggests that gay and bisexual men in the UK remain the group at the greatest risk of getting infected with HIV, and are also at a higher risk of infecting sexually transmitted diseases.

Women don’t think you are off the hook either. Woman may also exchange fluids during  sexual activity so for Lesbian and bisexual woman, the risk of infection from sexually transmitted diseases is just as high.

If you need advice or  require a sexual health test, we have a list of  local services you may find helpful.
