More About My RiskChecker

The My RiskChecker app is designed to enable users to get a real sense of the health risks they may be taking through their sexual behaviour. It asks a brief series of questions before assigning the user an indicative risk level based on the answers given. The app is designed to be quick, simple and discreet to use, and is optimised for use on personal mobile devices like smartphones and tablets (as well as working on desktop computers and laptops). It contains advice on 10 of the most common STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections), as well as enabling users to locate their nearest GUM clinic (sexual health clinic).

The information provided within the My RiskChecker web application (the "Website"), including videos, photographs and any NHS Choices medical information, videos and photographs, is for informational or educational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional medical care by a qualified doctor or other qualified healthcare professional.  While we aim to ensure that information is accurate, we do not warrant that any information included within this Website is correct or will meet your health or medical requirements.  This Website does not provide any medical or diagnostic services so you should always check with a health professional if you have any concerns about your health.

The risk level you receive at the end of the My RiskChecker application is only an indication based on your answers.  If you have any concerns, you should always visit your GP or GUM clinic.

The information contained within My RiskChecker was reviewed by a fully qualified medical professional in April 2013.

The My RiskChecker “Search for a Sexual Health Question” functionality incorporates a question and answer database provided by Teenage Sexual Health Information Trust, a registered charity no: 1111987.

The database has been reviewed, and will continue to be updated, by a team of health professionals currently led by Dr Clare Bale and which includes Drs Clare Lipetz and Louise Massey of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's sexual health service.
