How we produce our sexual health information

FPA is committed to providing high-quality information on sexual health issues. We produce clear and accurate information in a range of different formats.

Our aims are:

  • To inform people about the full range of contraceptive methods and support their choices.
  • To inform people about sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how to have safer sex.
  • To inform people about their choices when they are pregnant, including abortion and adoption, and to support their choices.
  • To inform people about planning a pregnancy and help them to make healthy choices during early pregnancy.
  • To provide information on sexual development and health for young people.

Our information is evidence-based and informed by clinical experts in sexual health. We review it regularly to make sure it is as current as possible.
