Men who have sex with other men

Are you a man who (also) has sex with other men (MSM)? In that case we advise you to undergo a periodical check-up twice a year.

It is important to undergo an STI test if you have symptoms, have been warned about an STI or if you used a defect condom. Do this, even if you already had two periodical check-ups. If in doubt, contact the GGD or do the risk-check.

What can the GGD do for you?

What can the GGD do for you?

You can also contact the GGD, anonymously, for:

  • free STI and HIV tests;
  • free hepatitis B vaccinations;
  • if you have any questions about sex

In addition to the regular consulting hours, there are also walk-in consulting hours for MSM in the evening, which you can attend without making an appointment. Make sure you arrive in good time. We assist people in the order or their arrival. We also regularly put in an appearance outside the GGD, e.g., at saunas. See the locations listed below for days and times of walk-in consulting hours. Contact us via the call-centre if you have symptoms.

Risk of HIV?

Risk of HIV?

If you have had unsafe sex with a person who is (or may be) infected with HIV, then you too are at risk of being infected with HIV. A course of treatment would reduce your chance of being HIV-positive. This course is known as PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis). PEP involves four weeks of treatment with HIV-inhibitors.
Starting quickly is important: within 72 hours after you had unsafe sex.

Do you think you are eligible for PEP? If so, contact us immediately by phone. Unable to reach us? In that case, contact the nearest emergency care department, preferably one with an HIV treatment centre. In the Limburg region, this is Maastricht University Medical Centre.

Urgent questions about PEP or sexual violence?
