Looking After Your Sexual Health
Safe Sex & Condoms
Safe sex is good sex and condoms are still the best way to be safe for both men and women from getting a sexually transmissible infection (STI) or blood borne virus (BBV). If used correctly, condoms can dramatically reduce the risk of most STIs as well as unintended pregnancy. ‘Safe sex’ is sexual contact that doesn’t involve the exchange of semen, vaginal fluids or blood between partners. Having regular STI screening and reducing the number of sexual partners also reduces the transmission risk of STIs.
Condoms are free at NTAHC and available from all of our offices in Alice Springs, Darwin and Palmerston. Please come in and get your free condoms and ask to speak to one of our Aboriginal Sexual Health staff if you would like to find out more information about safe sex, condoms, risk, getting tested or treatment information.
