Family Planning and Sexual Health

Sex is a normal aspect of adult life. It is therefore very important that you know about sexual health and take seriously the responsibility of protecting yourself from unwanted diseases or pregnancies.

We can advise on all aspects of sexual health and provide a full range of contraceptive methods including emergency contraception (the ‘morning-after pill’). We can also help you with the termination of a pregnancy.

If you think you may have contracted a sexual infection, you can come in and see us to talk about it and get tested.

Emergency Contraception

This is available from our nurses as requested.

Cervical Smears

If you wish to have a smear please make an appointment with one of the nurses. Routine cervical screening tests should begin at age 25. It is not recommended for women under that age.

The aim of cervical screening is to reduce the risk of cancer of the cervix by finding and treating cell changes that could, over time, develop into cancer.

B&NES Sexual Health Improvement Service for Young People

We provide free confidential sexual health service for young people.

This service is for young people aged 13 – 24 years, and for professionals working with young people in the Bath and North East Somerset area.
