Sex is a normal part of the human experience, and one that modern society now embraces and encourages.
Well the company behind the game would have you think so.But even if you do need an internal examination, it’s nothing to worry about.It can be a little uncomfortable but Brook staff can talk you through it and reassure you about any concerns you might have. We’ll always talk to you on your own first though, to make sure you’re not doing anything you don’t want to do, for example being pressured to get contraception when you don’t want to.Use Find a Service to find your nearest service, to book an appointment online (if possible), to see opening times and to get the phone number so you can call ahead and ask about appointments. Even if you’re under 16, your visit will be confidential but you will be encouraged to talk to a parent or carer about your visit if you can. In exceptional circumstances, for example if we think that you or another young person is at serious risk of immediate harm, we would try to put you in touch with services that can help.In the most exceptional circumstances we may need to make a decision to breach confidentiality, in order to protect you or another young person. You don’t have to tell anyone you don’t want to, but if you find out you have an STI, it is important to let your partners know so that they may be tested too.Can I see someone on my own, or do I have to have my parent or carer with me? After your initial confidential chat, your partner or friend is welcome to sit with you while you talk to one of our health professionals, if you would like them to.
