Sexual health is an important part of your personal health and the health of your family. If you have been experiencing any uncomfortable symptoms related to sexual health it is important to get checked over by a health professional. Untreated sexual infections or issues can be serious and lead to further complications.
Sexual health doesn’t only refer to sexually transmitted infections, if you are experiencing physical or emotional discomfort, changes or difficulties during intercourse that worry you a sexual health doctor, nurse or counsellor may be able to help. Counselling and medical consultations are usually confidential so you can feel comfortable asking questions or sharing personal information.
In addition to organisations specialising in diagnosing, treating and preventing sexual health issues, your general doctor can conduct sexual health testing.
