Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
Prevention is the best way to help control the spread of HIV and other STIs; if you’re having sex, always use a condom.
If you think you've put yourself at risk of getting a STI, telephone: 01904 721111 to arrange an appointment at the YorSexualHealth clinic or visit YorSexualHealth.
Age of consent
In the UK, the age at which young people can consent to a sexual relationship is 16. This is the same regardless of your sex, gender or sexual orientation.
It's against the law for anyone to have sex with a person under the age of 16.
