Sexual Health Advice

Good health is definitely one of the most sought after goals for every human being. No matter what you are or what you want to be, it is important that you are healthy so that you enjoy the benefits of your efforts. Physical health does not just mean that you are physically fit to do your everyday tasks: It actually means that you are fit from within. A good diet plays an extremely important role in maintaining good health. But when it comes to sexual health, how you behave is important, as you can protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are increasingly becoming commonplace the world over. The most common cause for the spread of these infections is unprotected sex with an infected person but some of the infections that we know as STIs can be passed by means other than sexual intercourse. It is also possible to become infected when you come in direct contact with the body fluids like semen or vaginal secretions of an infected person and some infections are blood-borne, so contact with blood is a possible route of infection. Using condoms can prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections to a large extent and their use is highly recommended.

Most sexually active people consider themselves to be at low risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted infection - bizarre but true, according to most surveys. More important than that, many people who are at risk have never had a sexual health check. In most cases, most people simply ignore the possibility of having an STI unless they have symptoms. Much of this is from the fear of any embarrassment in a consultation with a doctor. However, it is important to understand that STIs are not embarrassing but can lead to serious trouble if left untreated. With the growing STI rates in the UK, there is an increasing concern on the need for people to understand the importance of timely and expert sexual health advice.

Importance of getting expert help

It is also important to have regular health check-ups. The reason why regular health check-ups are important is because many patients with sexually transmitted infections are asymptomatic and some diseases have such regular symptoms that you may not feel the need for sexual health advice to deal with them You can get online sexual health advice at this charity website. Hence, the best idea to prevent getting infected with any sexually transmitted diseases, if you are sexually active, is to get periodic health tests done.

One of the most common concerns that sexually active people have is that of an unwanted pregnancy. Except for that, most people do not even consider any other issue related to their sexual habits. While preventing teenage pregnancy is an extremely important consideration in terms of public policy, what is even more essential, is an ability to understand the various other issues related to sexual well-being that can have far more serious repercussions. You can only receive such understanding and information from experts in the field or through a public education programme.

Where to look for discreet sexual health advice?

Most people who need expert advice for their sexual problems are often overwhelmed with the feeling of approaching an expert directly. For such people, the Internet is the answer.  There are several online health clinics that offer very discreet and genuine online consultations.  This method of consulting a health expert online can offer people not just expert advice but also guide them to the right treatment options.

Online health tests

When looking for online consultations with medical practitioners, there might be a requirement for you to have some medical tests performed so that your condition (if any) can be correctly diagnosed. There are quite a few online clinics in the UK that have the ability to offer testing from samples that you collect at home. These online clinics can help you by facilitating a lab test and interpretting the results for you. One of the market leaders in this field is TheSTIclinic.com but you can also get this sort of check done through Lloyds Pharmacy online on through one of their high street branches. The STI Clinic seems to be a bit faster (24 hours in most cases) and they include treatments if you test positive for anything. You can go to this clinic by clicking here to see the full range of tests on offer. You just need to choose a test and send your sample to the clinic's laboratory. If you need any advice on which test is appropraite, they have a 24 hour helpline (which is something that does not appear to be offered by any of the other testing clinics online). Once your sample is received, it is tested and your results will be made available to you in a discreet manner. If you test positive for anything, they will ensure that you get the right treatment and advice. If you are uncomfortable with an online testing service then we recommend that you see a doctor face to face rather than ignoring your sexual well-being. Your first port of call should be your local GUM clinic but if that option is not available to you, we recommend speaking to your GP. The last thing that you should do is ignore this part of your health and well-being.
