Baxter’s Bites Week 4 – Sexual Health


Baxters Bites Heading

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.

 

GENERAL ADVICE

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.
