Sexual Health Services Important Update :

Sexual Health Services in both the Murrumbidgee and Southern NSW Local Health Districts are currently reducing non-essential, and non-urgent activity in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to provide urgent and essential sexual health care, this includes;

  • Management of medication and vaccination for people living with HIV,
  • People requiring post exposure prophylaxis for potential exposure to HIV,
  • People who are displaying symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection, and
  • Management of current sexually transmitted infections.

We will not be providing a walk-in service at this time, and we encourage you to see your GP for non-urgent sexual health care such as PrEP and asymptomatic screening.

You wil need to speak with the Nurse prior to your appointment.

About Sexually Transmissible Infections (STIs)

Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are infections that can be passed on from one person to another during sex.

NSW Health provides up to date fact sheets on the most common STIs in Australia. These include: genital herpes, genital warts, Chlamydia, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea, hepatitis B, syphilis and HIV.

You can call the NSW Sexual Health Infoline on 1800 451 624 for assistance.

Sexual Health Info Link - This is a confidential and anonymous state-wide service where experienced sexual health nurses will answer your questions on sexual health and sexually transmissible infections.

They can also provide referrals to services close to you. The service is available to the general public and also to health professionals.

Play Safe  - Young people aged 15-29 can access sexual health information and ask questions on the NSW Health Playsafe website.

Play Safe Pro - We've collected the best tools for workers with young people around sexual health. Check out the organisational tools to help your service become more sexual health friendly,

Prevention

The best way to protect yourself from STIs is to practice safe sex. Always use a condom when you have sex.

Testing

Testing for STIs involves taking swabs, providing a urine sample and blood test. Many STIs do not have any symptoms so regular STI check-ups are important.  Discuss with your GP or local sexual health service.

Infectious Syphilis ALERT - For information for Aboriginal medical services, sexual health clinicians, general practitioners and antenatal services

Treatment

If you are diagnosed with an STI your GP or sexual health service will prescribe treatment.

Telling your partners – If you test positive for an STI it is important to tell your partner/s so they can be checked and treated. This is called contact tracing or partner notification. Your doctor or nurse can help you with this or you can use the websites listed below.

Let Them Know - This website will help people who have been diagnosed with Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Mycoplasma genitalium, Syphilis and Trichomonas to tell their sexual partners that they might also be at risk.

Better to Know - A resource designed especially for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to help inform partners who may be at risk of an STI.
