Sexual health, drugs and alcohol

Sexual health

One in 10 sexually active young Australians say they did not use any form of contraception the last time they had sex, which has resulted in an alarming increase in the number of reported Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Contraceptives can offer effective protection from unwanted pregnancy and some will help protect you against STIs - so it's important to know what is best to help you stay safe.

Free condoms are available from the UWS Welfare Office on your campus as well as information about sexual health. Additionally, you can call the NSW Sexual Health InfoLine – 1800 451 624 9:00am to 5:30pm.

Many STIs have no symptoms! Have you picked up more than you bargained for? Safe sex... no regrets!
