Sexual health & relationships


It is normal that attitudes to sex will vary from individual to individual. Remember you have the right to live according to your own values, and should never be made to feel pressured to have sex, even though other students around you may be doing so. If you do choose to have sex, remember that using condoms each time will reduce the risk of contracting a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) and can prevent an unplanned pregnancy. The links on this site can give you information on safe sex and relationship issues.
