What do they do at a Sexual Health Clinic?

Sexual health clinics offer a range of sexual health services for men and women, such as testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), advice and information about sexual health, contraception – including emergency contraception, such as the emergency contraceptive pill, pregnancy testing, HIV testing, PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis), hepatitis B vaccination, advice about abortion, and help for people who have been sexually assaulted.  Sexual health clinics may also be called genitourinary medicine (GUM) or sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. Not all clinics offer every service – check with the individual clinic to see what’s available.
