Spotlight on safer sex
Unprotected sex with your regular partner will only be safe as long as you are both only having sex with each other. Taking precautions to avoid catching an STI is critical, as it can result in serious health problems. An STI is a sexually transmitted infection which is passed on through sexual contact or the exchange of bodily fluids.
Finding out you have an STI can be quite a shock and extremely stressful. Becoming aware of the different infections and what to do if you have unsafe sex or notice any symptoms is vital. If you are in any doubt, talk to your doctor or search online for your nearest sexual health clinic.
