Sexually Transmitted Infections

Most methods of contraception do not protect you from sexually transmitted infections. 

Male and female condoms, when used correctly and consistently, can help protect against sexually transmitted infections. 

Diaphragms and caps may also offer some protection. 

If you can, avoid using condoms containing Nonoxinol 9 (spermicidally lubricated) as this does not protect against HIV and may even increase the risk of infection.

If you think you have a sexuallt transmitted infection please make an appointment with a GP or you can make an appointment at a sexual health clinic.
