Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI)

Remember that many methods of contraception do not protect you from sexually transmitted infections. However male and female condoms, when used correctly and consistently, can help protect against STIs.

If you think you are at risk of a STI or have symptoms then either:

  • Make an appointment with your GP

  • Go to the Family Planning Clinic - Click Here for details.

  • Go to the Genito-Urinary Medicine Clinic - see above
