Sexual Health Services
Nuvo Health is committed to ensuring our community members enjoy optimal health in all areas of life, including sexual health.
According to the World Health Organisation:
“Sexual health is fundamental to the overall health and well-being of individuals, couples and families, and to the social and economic development of communities and countries. Sexual health, when viewed affirmatively, requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.”
Across all of our centres, our medical and allied health professionals are committed to helping our patients live out their sexuality in a full and healthy way. Sexual activity and displays of affection are part of a healthy lifestyle, but it’s important to understand there are associated risks. We can help you to take the necessary steps to make sure you and your sexual partners practise safe sex, including getting tested regularly.
So, if you are sexually active, we’d encourage you to book an appointment today and speak with one of our GP’s to help ensure you’re doing everything you can to enjoy optimal sexual health. Understanding how to practise safe sex and getting tested regularly for sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) are key when it comes to managing your health. Even if you feel healthy, some STDs don’t display symptoms straight away, so it’s a great idea to incorporate regular STD testing as part of your health management routine.
Your Nuvo Health GPs are very comfortable helping you navigate most sexual issues including painful sex, libido mismatch and erectile dysfunction.
If you would like to make an appointment to see a doctor please book online or call your nearest Nuvo Health location today.
