Sexual Health

Good sexual health means making sure you have the knowledge, skills and ability to make informed sexual choices and act responsibly to protect your health and the health of others.

Many Sexually Transmitted Infections have no symptoms, and people often don’t know that they are infected. Fortunately many Sexually Transmitted Infections  can be quickly and effectively treated

Factsheets on a range of Sexually Transmissible Infections are available via the NSW Ministry of Health website:

Further factsheets can be found here. Information on Safe Sex can be found here.
