It is important to pay attention to your sexual health whatever your age, and whether you are in a long term relationship or not.
If you are sexually active, you may be at risk of catching a STI (also known as STD). Practising safe sex and always using a condom can reduce the risk of infection.
If you think you may have an STI we would advise you to make an appointment to see your GP or visit one of the local sexual health clinics.
