Sexual health information & screening
Our sexual health is an important part of our wellbeing and contributes to healthy self-esteem, relationships and physical health.
Sexual health is an integration of the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and cultural aspects of sexual being,
Good sexual health means making sure you have the knowledge, skills and ability to make informed sexual choices and acting responsibly to protect your health and the health of others. An important aspect of sexual health includes physical health and being free of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Unsafe, unprotected or 'risky' sexual practice can cause great anxiety about potential STIs and we encourage people to get advice and testing if they are worried.
All questions and concerns about any aspect of sexual health are treated with confidentiality and respect.
Situated in the University Hospital Geelong Outpatients Department (enter via main hospital entrance), our sexual health drop-in clinic offers advice, management and resources covering all aspects of sexual health awareness for people of all ages, such as:
- Sexual health screening and treatment
- Contraception advice management and referral
- Screening and management of blood-borne viruses
- Support and referral for sexual dysfunctions.
Due to Covid-19, Barwon Reproductive and Sexual Health Clinic (outpatients) are requesting that for ‘walk-in’ service, please refrain from automatically attending until further notice.
We are offering a telephone +/- telehealth triage service for our clients that would normally attend the ‘walk-in’ service. Please ring mobile number 0466376158 ONLY on TUESDAYS between 12md – 5pm ONLY until further notice. You will be triaged and if requested to attend, you will be offered a specific appointment time.
This assists our service to continue, but also protect both the public and staff during this time.
Other clients whom attend our service, we will make contact with you accordingly. If you are given appointments to attend or undertake telehealth, please keep these appointments.
