"I’m in love." "You’re sexy." "Get your annual pap smear." "Do you have a condom?"
"What’s an STI?" "The big O." "I need ECP ASAP!"

It’s important to take care of your sexual health just as you would any other part of you. If you are sexually active (or thinking about it)…be informed! Find out how much you really know about contraception, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), intimacy, orgasm, healthy relationships, HIV, yeast infections, abstinence, gynecological exams, masturbation…

The Reproductive Health Center, a service provided through Livingston County, offers basic  sexual health services to both men and women on the Geneseo campus.
