Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception can help avoid a pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse (without using contraception) or contraceptive failure (condom has split, missing your pill, etc). 

Emergency Hormonal Contraception is also known as the ‘morning after pill’ when taken within 72 hours can help prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed. You can get free emergency hormonal contraception from a sexual health clinic or from your nearest pharmacies.

Chlamydia testing

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK, with sexually active young people at highest risk. You don't need to have had lots of sexual partners to be at risk. Chlamydia often has no symptoms and can have serious health consequences (e.g. chronic abdominal pain and long-term problems including infertility) in both men and women.

If you are sexually active and under 25, you should be tested for chlamydia at least every year and every time you have a new partner, even if it is under a year since you last tested. You can get tested at the sexual health clinic, or at your GP practice. You can also test yourself at home by ordering the Chlamydia screening kit from SH:24 online, or collect the kit from your nearest pharmacy.

HIV testing

London has the highest rates of sexually transmitted infections in England, with 33,863 Londoners diagnosed with HIV. Across the UK it’s estimated there are nearly 26,000 people with HIV who do not know they have it. The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have an HIV test. This involves testing a sample of your blood or saliva for signs of the infection.

You can get tested at a sexual health clinic, as your GP practice or online.

We want to open up discussions around sexual wellbeing in South Asian communities and improve understanding of key topics such as contraception, consent, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
