When should I get a sexual health check?

Anyone who is sexually active with more than one partner should have a sexual health check at least once a year. Our Bankstown GPs excel at providing completely confidential and discreet care, so there’s no need to feel awkward or embarrassed.

 

You might need an appointment sooner if you:

 

  • Think you may have an STI
  • Have had unsafe sex (vaginal, oral, or anal)
  • Had a condom broke or fell off during sex
  • Have more than one sexual partner (or if you partner has more than one sexual partner)
  • Have shared needles (for tattooing, piercing, drugs, etc)
  • Are starting a new sexual relationship

 

What are my fertility options?

If you have unsuccessfully tried to fall pregnant for more than a year, one or both partners may have a fertility issue. Our doctors can begin investigations for fertility concerns, provide in-office advice on preconception care, and refer you to another Sydney medical specialist if required.

 

What pregnancy support is available?

Our Bankstown team includes several antenatal shared care GPs who are recognised at the South Western Sydney Local Health District and beyond. We’re proud to care for you and your baby right up until birth.

 

As GPs, we are equipped to provide individualised care and may understand your personal medical history better than a midwife or other specialist. We can perform some early tests, coordinate support with local hospitals in Sydney, and arrange referrals to your desired hospital or birth centre.

 

Don’t live in discomfort. If your fertility or sexual health is causing you grief, book an appointment with our caring team of Sydney doctors.
