From the week of the 11th to the 17th take this time to think about your sexual health, just like your physical and mental health it is important to care for it as best you can. This ties in with the theme for this year.
Playing it safe
Sex should be consensual, safe and pleasurable for both parties involved. Consent interlinks with mutual respect all important parts of having a healthy relationship with your partner.
What else can you do to keep safe:
- using a form of contraception
- regular STI testing especially with new partners.
If you need to talk through contraceptive options or would like to get a test Harpurhey clinic runs specifically for under 25s please visit:
All of this can empower you to take charge of and look after your own sexual health and even to help empower friends and family to take charge and look after their sexual health.
