Don’t wait if you need help. It’s not unusual to feel ‘shame’ or be embarrassed when you are looking for advice or help with sexually transmissible infections. So get help early or you might risk your health and the sexual health of your partners. Remember there can be serious complications with infections, such as infertility and the increased risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV/AIDS.
If you are having symptoms in your genital area, or if you had sex without a condom or are worried about a sexual contact you had, see a doctor, nurse, health worker or community health worker. Once you have tests, treatment and seek support you will put your mind at ease.
It is important for Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal people to have an annual sexual health check. If you have multiple sex partners we suggest you have a check up more often.
