A sexual health check-up can be nerve-wracking, even more so for those of us who identify as LGBTIQ. Talking about our bodies, how we identify and who we are attracted to with a new doctor is hard, especially if we have to worry whether they’ll respect us.
But here’s the thing, they’ve heard it all before. Not only that, but they’re trained to provide non-judgemental care regardless. There are also many LGBTIQ friendly sexual health services available with doctors and nurses who you can feel free to speak with openly and honestly.
