Sexual health is all about enjoying the sexual activity you want without risking causing yourself or anyone else any suffering or harm.
It is also about using contraception and avoiding sexually transmitted infections (STIs) - which are on the rise.
Making positive choices about contraception and sexual health is important, not just for your physical health but also for your general wellbeing. Our sexual health affects our physical and psychological wellbeing and is central to some of the most important relationships in our lives.
In this section you can find out all you need to know about the symptoms of STIs, how to protect yourself and where to turn for help and other general advice issues such as pregnancy and contraception.
Safer sex means thinking about these issues, but most importantly doing something about them.
