Services and Resources

Get Yourself Tested (GYT) Clinics

Get Yourself Tested (GYT) Clinics are a partnership between University Health Service and POWER to provide students with monthly opportunities to get STI screenings done at outreach events. Students attending these events will also receive sexual health information and resources. Additional clinics for HIV testing will also be offered throughout the semester, with testing provided through UK HealthCare.

Sexual Health Presentations

Sexual health presentations and events can be provided by request. Presentations cover various topics, including basic sexual health knowledge, communication, and body normalcy, or they can be created to cater to specific content. The Student Wellness Coordinator or the Sexperts may provide these presentations.

Sexual Health Resources

Sexual health resources, including condoms, lubricant, dental dams, etc., can be obtained at any Sexpert or sexual health event. These items can also be obtained by coming to the POWER wing of the 3rd Floor Gatton Student Center East Wing. Condoms can also be obtained in the 2nd-floor restrooms at the University Health Service building.

Sexual Health Care

Sexual health care is provided to students by University Health Service. Students can be seen for GYN/GU services, including pap smears and birth control. They can also be seen for STI examination. These services are included in the student health fee but can also be utilized with private health insurance or a pay out-of-pocket option. There are also community options for testing through the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department and AVOL.
