Sexual health - teenage boy and girl at school

It is important to have the right information about how to look after yourself, how to stay safe and make the right health choices. However, there is so much information available it can be confusing as to where to go to for advice.

Although this is a very personal matter, your School Nurse, GP or a sexual health worker will be able to give you advice, information and support.

All health professionals are bound by the same confidentiality rules which mean that a young person can talk ‘in confidence’ (even if you are under 16) and the health professional will not talk about what you have said to other people or to your school.

In special circumstances, if the health professional is concerned about your safety they will have to tell another professional to protect you. If this does happen they will usually tell you first. This will be explained to you at your first contact.

There are also many good and useful websites that can offer sexual health advice many which are linked here for you.
