Important Updates

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are currently having issues with our telephone numbers at our Stockport clinic. Please bear with us whilst we try and resolve this issue. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Thank you
Due to COVID-19 the majority of our clinics are now closed. We have temporarily moved to telephone appointments. Please do not come to clinic unless told to do so. It is important that if you have been asked to attend one of our clinics, you wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Wherever possible please attend clinic alone. If there are any specific reasons you need to attend with someone else, this must be discussed during your telephone consultation.

Alcohol & Drugs

Sex and alcohol and/or drugs can be a dangerous combination.

These are some of the dangers if you have sex while drunk or under the influence of drugs:

  • Unaware of someone spiking your drink
  • Forget to use a condom
  • Not realise if someone is wearing a condom or if it breaks or slips off
  • If you use another form of contraception, e.g. the pill, you may forget to take it
  • Both alcohol and drugs can lower your inhibitions, which might make you more likely to do something you don’t really want to
  • You may lose self-control, which could put you in a position where you may be more susceptible to sexual assault, including rape
  • Have sexual activity that hurts you (you may be less sensitive to pain when drunk or high)
  • Have sex with someone you wouldn’t usually choose to be with
  • Inject drugs with a used needle, risking HIV infection and other blood-borne viruses
