Some subjects are hard to bring up with your doctor but we promise, this one does get easier! But if you really, really can’t stand the idea of talking about sex or the health of your fun bits with your usual GP, we highly recommend heading to your local sexual health clinic. The staff there are highly trained and are totally used to talking about these topics with young people.
Hot Tip: When it comes to your sexual health, there are no stupid questions.
A Government-fun clinic that offers you the chance to talk to professionals other than your local GP about your sexual health. They offer bulk billing for services (meaning you don’t have to pay anything if you have a Medicare card). If you don’t have a Medicare card, you may still be able to access the services, but will need to contact the clinic directly to find out more details.
Just remember that doctors and nurses at these centers spend their whole day talking about sex, so don’t be embarrassed to ask anything! The more you ask the more informed and prepared you will be.
