Preventive Sexual Health Services for People with a Penis

What Sexual Health Services Do People With A Penis Need?

The following preventive services are recommended for most people with a penis. Your provider will help you decide which ones you need. Even if you don’t have symptoms, screenings can detect many sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you do have an STI, the sooner you get treated, the better. Early treatment can often prevent serious problems from developing. Vaccines are also available that can protect you from getting certain STIs. And a provider can counsel you on contraceptive options to prevent pregnancy, if that is what you and your partner(s) are interested in.

It’s Your Body!

You know your body better than anyone. Always tell your health care provider about any changes in your health. Speak to them about any concerns you may have about conditions, diseases, or issues related to sexual pleasure, functioning, or performance.
