Sexual Health

Welcome to the sexual health section of the website. These pages contain information to help you navigate the sexual choices that feel right for you. Some general sexual health tips to keep in mind:

Get regular medical care. If you are sexually active, this medical care should include getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Practice safer sex (like using condoms or dental dams) every time you have sex to prevent STI transmission.

If you are having sex with someone of the opposite gender, research the contraceptive options that are available. Use these methods in conjunction with, not instead of safer sex methods. For example, if you are using the pill, remember that this will only work to prevent pregnancy, and you should also use a condom to prevent STI transmission.
