Quick access to help and information

I've had unprotected sex

Unprotected sex refers to any form of sexual contact where a barrier method of contraception (such as a condom or female/internal condom) has not been used or has failed.

This includes:

  • Vaginal sex (penis-in-vagina sex)
  • Oral sex
  • Anal sex
  • Fingering or hand jobs

If you have had unprotected sex, you may be at risk of STIs. Remember - not all STIs have symptoms.

You may also be thinking about unplanned pregnancy. If so, we can help.

I'm worried I have an STI

Don’t panic, most infections are easily treated and getting tested is free and confidential.

If you are showing symptoms of an STI, you should contact a sexual health service as soon as possible for testing and treatment. Book an appointment online to speak to one of our team.

If you don’t have any symptoms but have had unprotected sex, don’t wait and hope for the best, have an STI test as soon as you can – it’s the only way you can be sure.

I think I'm pregnant

If you’ve had unprotected sex or your method failed (e.g. missed pill or a split condom) you may be able to prevent pregnancy by using emergency contraception within the first five days.

The sooner you access emergency contraception, the more effective it will be.

If you are pregnant and it is not planned, we can support you with whatever you need. We are here to listen, answer any questions and give you lots of information and support to help with a decision that feels right for you.
