Since we are many young people in Maastricht, sexual health is a topic some of us may have to concern themselves with during our time in this beautiful city. Luckily for the wild ones amongst us, there is a service provided for sexual health issues by the GGD center for sexual Health (GGD Centrum voor Seksuele Gezondheid Zuid-Limburg). They offer services in:
- sexual health care
- STI testing and treatment
- contraception prescription and emergency contraception
- pregnancy testing
- pregnancy all-options counseling
- LGBT services (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender)
- rape/abuse crisis services
As long as you are under 25 years of age, these services are free of charge and you do not need to be insured. The GGD center also offers pre-abortion care and counseling, however, they do not have an abortion clinic but will instead forward patients to another clinic.
If you think you need to get checked up, you can make an appointment via phone (045-8506613, workdays 8:45 – 12:15, mon & wed 13:30 – 15:30) or you can contact them via mail if you have any questions (email@example.com).
