Reproductive & Sexual

Looking for family planning advice or information on what type of contraception works best? Help is on hand through the resources on our site. Experts in the field of sexual practice, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and contraception all publish huge volumes of work online every year. Expert information is just a mouse-click away!

Safe sex is a big issue, especially amongst the young. As well as the obvious risk of pregnancy from unprotected sex, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are highly contagious, being spread very easily, sometimes within seconds of body fluid contact. Over 708,000 people in the UK were diagnosed as suffering from some form of sexually transmitted disease, including AIDS in 2003.

Using a reliable form of contraception will help you avoid contracting sexually transmitted diseases when being sexually active with a new partner or several different partners, and also reduce the risk of pregnancy. Not all contraceptive methods are dual-purpose though. For instance, if you are taking a contraceptive pill to prevent pregnancy, the pill will not stop transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. You will therefore need you or your partner to use a contraceptive method specifically to stop STDs, such as a condom.

For more information on reproductive and sex issues as well as contraception please use the resources on our site.
