Sexual Health

Looking for info on puberty, male and/or female genitalia, periods, PMS/PMT (premenstrual syndrome or premenstrual tension), breasts, sexual activity, pregnancy, contraception, STIs (sexually transmitted infections), thrush, or impotence then we’ll point you in the right direction.

Useful Links

If you’re a young person in Cardiff, Wales or the UK then brook.org.uk should be your first port of call for online sexual health information. It’s a fantastic website crammed full of useful information written with under-25s in mind. Not only that but they offer Ask Brook, a web and text chat service and they’ve got a huge FAQs section. You can contact an advisor by text on 07537 402 024 (standard SMS rates). The only slight thing is that they don’t have a Brook Centre in Cardiff (or Wales), so see below for face-to-face services.

Also check out NHS Direct Wales’ Sexual Health pages and the local health board’s site. Buzzfeed has posted about a doctor’s guide to contraception and there’s always The Mix.
