If you’re concerned about your sexual health, the first thing to say is that you mustn’t panic. Your best bet is to find a sexual health clinic with trained professionals able to guide you to whatever service you need.
SHAG (Cardiff Sexual Health Awareness Group) is both a guidance and support service right here on campus. They run the C-Card service every week. With a card you are able to get free condoms and lube at any of their sessions, which run Wednesday 1-3 in the Boardroom,on the third floor of the Union. They also provide free condoms and lube in dispensers around the Students’ Union. If you have any queries or need any guidance, contact them directly, or visit their website at: http://cushag.com/.
Park Place Surgery: if you are registered here already, every Wednesday they offer walk in contraceptive and sexual health screenings, devoting their whole opening time that day to the service. Call them on 02920870660 if you have any queries, or contact Roath House Surgery (their parent surgery).
Only Cardiff Royal Infirmary offers full STI checks, but you can get basic texts for chlamydia and gonorrhoea at most clinics. Text ‘SLOT’ to 07786202254 at 6pm the day before you need an appointment to book yourself in. If you have any other queries, please get in touch with your GP.
