For many people it is the most beautiful triviality in the world - but sex can also transmit diseases. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have different signs and can be caused by very different pathogens. If you suspect you have been infected with an STI, it is important that you seek advice. You can consult your gynaecologist, urologist or dermatologist.
An anonymous option is the STI consultation of the public health department. It provides information on sexually transmitted diseases and offers free HIV tests.
Dementia is one of the most common diseases in old age, affecting about 1.7 million people in Germany. However, when a person falls ill, this also affects their family. Often it is the relatives who care for and nurse the affected person, going through a rollercoaster of compassion, helplessness and despair. They invest a great deal of energy and are faced with many practical challenges. It is therefore good to seek advice on the support options available in good time.
The care centre has an overview of the offers in Jena and will be happy to advise you.
