What to expect
As part of your consultation, you’ll be asked some personal questions such as your medical and sexual history, what contraception you use, and about your sex life and sexual partners.
All information will be treated confidentially and nobody within your household will be contacted. If it’s felt that you’re at risk, or another person is at risk, other services will be informed.
What support does the service provide?
Sexual health services provide:
- Advice on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how to protect yourself
- STI testing and treatment
- Information on different types of contraception
- Any type of contraception, including emergency contraception, contraceptive pill, injection, implant and coil.
Get more information from the Swansea Bay Health Board website, or Frisky Wales.
Swansea Bay Health Board are now visiting different areas throughout Bridgend, Neath, Port Talbot and Swansea to deliver services following the telephone consultation. Please call for more information.
Testing for sexually transmitted infections
Home testing STIs are available from Frisky Wales for free. You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire and then select the test you require. The test will be posted to your home address. If you don’t want a test to come to your home address, please contact the helpline 0300 555 0279.
You’re advised to wait two weeks after potential exposure before providing a sample for chlamydia and gonorrhoea, and six weeks for HIV and syphilis.
You will be texted negative results. If you have a positive result, or if your answers have indicated that you need further advice, the sexual health service will be in touch to arrange your free and confidential treatment and care.
Pregnancy Advisory Service
If you’d like support regarding an unplanned pregnancy or a termination of pregnancy, please call 01792 200303 to make a self-referral.
