“After one of these lessons taught at my school in Wakefield, I went up to the teacher from the RSE team and told her I’d had unprotected sex only 3 days ago.
I’d been off school for ages and only attended the lesson after my other teachers said how interesting and fun the RSE classes are. I didn’t realise the risks of unprotected sex and hadn’t even thought about pregnancy until it all talked about that day.
The RSE team explained how we (young people) can get free condoms on their C-card scheme and told us that our local Spectrum Sexual Health clinic offers advice and support with all things related to sexual health. I learnt that if i want to look into methods of contraception or be tested for STIs there are walk-in appointments that don’t require calling the clinic first, or youth drop-in sessions that are only for young people. The best thing was hearing about EHC (Emergency Hormonal Contraceptive) or the ‘morning after pill’ which I didn’t really know much about before – especially that in can be taken 3-5 days after sex!
It’s then I realised that I put myself at risk of not only STIs but pregnancy too. I talked with the RSE teacher after class and she helped me book in for an appointment at my local Spectrum sexual health clinic for emergency contraception and an STI test.”
We have a new Central Clinic for Sexual Health services in Wakefield.
Our teams have moved from their previous premises at Margaret Street and King Street and are now at the Trinity Walk Shopping Centre (ground floor, behind Asda Living).
You can contact the clinic on 01924 846628 or email@example.com
