Welcome to Baxter’s Bites Week 3 – Sexual Health

Sexual Health

Anyone who is sexually active can catch a sexually transmitted infection.

Many STI’s have no symptoms even though the infection exists and some have symptoms that appear and then disappear.



Warnings signs to look out for are:

  • Discharge from the penis or vagina or unusual vaginal bleeding.
  • Rashes, sores, blisters, itchiness, lumps or pain in the genital area.
  • Burning sensation when urinating or the need to urinate more often.
  • Pain during sex.
  • Use a condom every time you have sex. Condoms are the only form of contraception to protect you against STI’s and unplanned pregnancy at the same time.
  • If you’ve had unprotected sex and think you may be at risk you should seek medical attention even if you don’t have any symptoms.
