We provide sexual health advice and prescriptions. This includes emergency contraception like the morning after pill; and pap smears. Likewise, we provide diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases.
When to get an STI Check:
STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) do need treatment. This will protect you but also your sexual partners. You might need sexual health screening if you experience unusual symptoms. For example:
- Abnormal symptoms on the vagina, penis or anus
- Discomfort whilst urinating
- Pain during intercourse
- Genital rashes, inflammation or wounds on or around your genitals
- Itching around genitalia
- Redness or a rash
Don’t hesitate to pop in for a confidential chat if you’ve noticed changes or discomfort. Similarly, if you simply need advice about STIs. We know the right treatments to ensure sexual health and body confidence.
Equally important, we can guide you if you have any uncertainty about sexuality or sexual safety.
Emergency Contraceptive (Morning After ) Pill
- If you’ve had unprotected intercourse, the Emergency Contraceptive Pill is effective if taken within 72 hours (3 days).
- The Morning after Pill should not be considered a regular form of contraception. However, we can suggest better options for family planning.
Also, we can prescribe the Morning after pill in advance if you think you might need it as a precaution to avoid pregnancy.
