Contraception

Contraception (if used properly) should stop pregnancy. Some forms of contraception can also stop sexually transmitted infections (STIs). There are many different contraceptive methods available and different methods suit people at different times of their lives.

We want you to help you access information so you can decide what’s right for you. Here is your guide to contraception

If you are thinking about having sex or are already having sex it is a good idea to go to a local sexual health clinic or your doctor for advice

If a condom breaks or you have unprotected sex remember Emergency Contraception  

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

There are lots of types of STI, which both girls and guys can get, and the symptoms can vary hugely. Some don’t even have any symptoms, but can still impact on your health.

That’s why it’s a good idea to find out all about the different types of STI that are out there, and how you can protect yourself (usually by using a condom).

The following link takes you to information leaflets on the most common STI’s, so you know your options and can take action to stop yourself getting infected, or get treated if you need to.
