The Importance of Accessible Sexual Health

September 1, 2023 - September 30, 2023

Sexual Health Month, celebrated each September, is a good time to assess our level of sexual health and to clear up any gaps in our knowledge. This month we illuminate the link between sexual health and viral hepatitis.

There is a risk of transmission of hepatitis through sexual contact which can affect anyone who is sexually active. It can be passed on between people of the same sex or different sexes. If sexual fluids or blood (including menstrual blood) enter the bloodstream, hepatitis B or C infection can occur. Practicing safe sex methods like using condoms and getting regularly screened for STIs are recommended for those at risk.

Sexual Health Month can inspire us to explore questions about ourselves and our partner’s sexual health. Sexual Health Victoria’s website has a range of inclusive and accessible information regarding STI’s, contraception options, reproductive health and clinical resources.

We are here to answer your queries and support you. Call or chat with us online.
