Sexual Health

For us young people sexuality and sexual health are very important topics.  The GGD center for sexual Health (GGD Centrum voor Seksuele Gezondheid Zuid-Limburg) offers many services related to sexual health and well-being, such as:

  • 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 (

Visit the GGD’s website (only in Dutch) for more information about sexual health.
