Your sexual health is just as important as your physical and mental health. Sexual health is not only about avoiding sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but understanding what makes us feel good about ourselves, who we’re attracted to, and the decisions we make around sexual activity. Sexual health is something we all need to think and talk about (regardless of our gender or sexuality).
Whether you’re concerned about pregnancy, planning a family or exploring your sexuality, there is help available.
Our doctors and nurses at the University Health Services are experienced in discussing sexual health matters. There’s also a range of organisations in the community that specialise in sexual and reproductive health. So don’t be afraid to book a medical appointment or reach out for information, support and counselling.
