A healthy relationship with your partner may include physical affection and intimacy. If you have sex, it’s incredibly important to make sure that you are being safe.
‘Safe sex’ is sex where you are using contraception which will protect you from catching a sexually transmitted infection, becoming pregnant or from making somebody else pregnant. We’ve included some important information about where you can access contraception whilst studying in Leeds, remember, it is your right to be able to use contraception whenever you have sex.
Whilst you're studying at University it's good to get to know the local organisations.
Leeds Sexual Health is a brilliant service that offers Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) screening and treatment, HIV testing and contraception services. The website is really easy to use and is a great place for information, advice and support so you can decide what is right for you when having safe sex.
Organisations such as Yorkshire MESMAC also offer services to various communities across Yorkshire, including African and other BAME people as well as LGBT+ young people and adults. Alongside sexual health screenings and advice, they also offer consultancy and counseling services.
