 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

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

Further fact sheets can be found here. Information on Safe Sex can be found here.
