What are sexual health services and what do they cover?

Anyone with a concern about sexual health can see their GP, whether it’s about contraception, periods, STIs, pregnancy, cervical screening, or abortion. People can also speak to their doctor if they want to talk to someone about sex and sexuality.

A GP talks about the sexual health services that they usually provide.

Sexual health services are free and available to everyone. Services and advice are available from:

•    GPs
•    pharmacies
•    contraception clinics (family planning clinics)
•    sexual health clinics
•    STI (sexually transmitted infections) testing clinics
•    genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics
•    young people’s services (e.g. charities that work with young people)
