Sexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.1

Health care providers are the best source for information and skills related to maintaining your sexual health. They can also assist you in making informed decisions about obtaining and using birth control.

UHCS offers self-pay STI testing for NU students. Self-pay testing means your insurance will not be charged and no bill for services will be sent home. Students may schedule an appointment for these services or to discuss sexual health and behaviors by calling UHCS at (617) 373-2772.
