Whilst at university you may decide to have sex or you may not. Either way it is important to understand sexual health in general and how to make healthy choices.
More than a third of cases of sexually transmitted diseases are in the 16-24 age category according to the Health Protection Agency. The best protection against this is appropriate contraception.
Contraception can also help protect against unplanned pregnancy. The NHS offers advice on pregnancy and local services can advise around unplanned pregnancy.
The University Medical Centre are able to offer sexual health advice if you are a patient and the NHS run a Sexual Health Clinic in the city centre where you can book an appointment or attend a walk-in clinic.
