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:
