Denmark Street Pharmacy Supports Good Sexual Health

Denmark Street Pharmacy is a discreet first port of call for support and advice in maintaining good sexual health. 

The team at Denmark Street Pharmacy can offer advice on all aspects of good sexual health, from the emergency contraceptive pill and erectile dysfunction to sexually transmitted infections and ensuring you are practicing safe sex.

“If you have had unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed, emergency contraception, or ‘the morning after pill’, can be used to prevent pregnancy”, said James Springell, Pharmacy Manager.  “There are different types of contraceptive pill available and we can advise you on the best option for you.”

“Condoms are available free of charge at Denmark Street Pharmacy and when used correctly and consistently these are a reliable method of preventing pregnancy and protecting both partners from sexually transmitted infections.”

It’s estimated that half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70 will, to some degree, have erectile dysfunction or impotence.  The team at Arlington Road Pharmacy can give advice on making changes to your lifestyle that might improve the symptoms such as stopping smoking, losing weight and taking regular exercise.

One of the most common sexually transmitted infections is Chlamydia.  “Many people don’t have any symptoms so are unaware that they are infected.” said James.  “Chlamydia can be easily diagnosed with either a urine test or a swab of the infected area and is easily treated with antibiotics.  We offer free Chlamydia testing kits at the Pharmacy.”

Pharmacy Manager, James Springell said, “No appointment is necessary and you can speak with our Pharmacist in the privacy of a consultation room, without being overheard.”
