Sexual Health

If you are sexually active, then you should know all the risks and how to prevent or reduce them. Firstly it is important to realise that sexual health is not simply about infections or diseases. It is the physical, mental and emotional well-being of each of us in relation to our sexual activities. 

At GADD we offer advice on all aspects of enjoying a healthy sex life be that contraceptive supplies or advice, emotional advice, or help and referrals with regard to physical aspects. 

We always have a healthy supply of condoms, lube and dental dams. Our friendly staff and volunteers will be able to offer advice on how best to use the products to keep you safe or refer you to the information if you're not comfortable speaking about these topics. 

GADD works with the Darlington and Durham NHS PCT's, in offering Sexual Health services. The GUM Clinics listed below offer screening services for all sexually transmitted infections offering both drop in, and appointment services, as listed. 

Don't risk your life long health. Be safe.
