To safely stop using condoms within your relationship, you need to be able to talk openly and honestly with each other about why you want to do it, what the potential benefits and risks might be, the ground rules for sex inside and outside (if any) the relationship and how you’ll deal with any problems that may arise.
Step Up Scheme
The SortHIV Step-Up scheme offers free and exclusive access to additional sexual health support, including one to one sessions, workshops, condoms and lube, and testing kits.
You will not be able to access PrEP directly through the step-up scheme but we will provide you with the most current information and inform you about ways you can access PrEP.
If you’d like to refer yourself to the scheme click here. By completing the form, you consent to being contacted by PaSH staff who will review your referral and aim to get in touch with you within 2 working days.
Maintain clear and open communication about sex with each other and other people outside the relationship (if that’s what you’ve decided) and establish guidelines for dealing with any problems should they arise.
