SEXUAL WELLNESS

Enjoy a healthy sexual life

A successful sex life should be safe for both parties. Find out what risky contact means, what its consequences may be and how to deal with them.

What is sexual health?

Sexual health can be looked at from many perspectives. First of all, the psychological one, in which sexual health is the complement of a satisfying emotional life. Secondly, from the biological andrological (men) and gynecological-endocrine (women) perspective, which is associated with sexual performance and fertility and has a significant impact on libido. Thirdly, from the perspective of infection, i.e. sex life free from sexually transmitted diseases (STI/STD). Taking care of all the elements of sexual health allows us to be fully satisfied with this aspect of our lives.

In our clinic we offer professional advice on the prevention, monitoring and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. Take advantage of our experts' knowledge!

In what situations is contact risky?

Anal sex

When is there a risk?
The results of the research proved that the most risky form of sexual contact is passive anal contact. According to the statistics, the most people who practice anal sex are heterosexual. Therefore, it should be remembered that the risk of infection with sexually transmitted diseases concerns analous contacts of both heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual people.
Most common infections
  • HIV
  • HCV
  • HBV
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Chlamydia

Oral sex

When is there a risk?
Oral sex is not fully safe for infection with sexually transmitted diseases. The HIV concentration in the pre-ejaculate is lower than in semen, but the test results confirmed the presence of the virus. Of course, there is a much higher risk of HIV transmission in oral sex with sperm ejaculation. Saliva is not an infectious material, so being caressed orally by an infected person is not associated with the risk of HIV infection. Caressing an HIV-infected woman can only be associated with risk by contact with her blood or if there is massive damage to the mouth and a large amount of vaginal discharge.

  • HCV
  • HBV
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Chlamydia

Vaginal sex

When is there a risk?
Vaginal sex also carries a risk of infection with sexually transmitted diseases. It is greater for a woman than for a man because of the large area of the vaginal mucosa exposed to potentially infected biological material. Sex during menstruation increases the risk of infection for both women and men.

  • Gonorrhoea
  • Chlamydia

Act responsibly

The use of a condom provides the fullest but not complete protection against all sexually transmitted diseases. Intact and properly used, it fully protects against HIV, HCV, HBV infection.

Bacterial infections can be transmitted on the hands during caresses. Oral sex, during which the condom is only used occasionally (although indicated), also carries risks.

Treatment of infections

Most sexually transmitted bacterial infections can be treated effectively with appropriately coordinated antibiotic therapy. However, more and more often we hear about bacteria that are resistant to treatment.

Vaccines against HPV - human papillomavirus, HVB - hepatitis B virus, HAV - hepatitis A virus are available on the market. We encourage to undergo prophylactic vaccinations, which protect against unpleasant and dangerous ailments.
