This year, Sexual Health Week is all about sexually transmitted infections and condom use.
Lots of young people learn about STIs at school, but it's often just bare facts, which means infections may not be discussed in the context of enjoying safer sex and relationships.
If you are sexually active you should visit a Sexual Health Clinic to be tested. These are free, confidential, non-judgmental and available to people of any age. In Oxfordshire, the two main sexual health clinics are in Headington and Banbury, but there are also clinics in Abingdon, Bicester, Didcot, Cowley, Kidlington, Wantage and Witney. You can also go to your GP or School Health Nurse.
Conquer your condom embarrassment
Most sex takes place for pleasure, so there isn’t anything to feel ashamed or embarrassed about when you talk about condoms.
Remember that condoms are available for all young people in Oxfordshire under the age of 25 through the Safety C-Card Scheme. There are C-Card locations all over Oxfordshire including schools, pharmacies, youth clubs and sexual health and contraceptive clinics.
