Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Non-specific urethritis

Non-specific urethritis (NSU) is a sexually transmissible infection (STI). This page outlines the symptoms and treatment for NSU.

What is it?

Non-specific urethritis (NSU) is an infection that causes inflammation of the urethra.

How do you get it?

You usually get NSU by having unprotected (no condom) sex, including vaginal, anal and oral sex.

What are the symptoms?

Sometimes there are no symptoms. However, you might get:

  • discharge from the penis
  • pain when weeing (urinating).

How is it treated?

NSU is treated with antibiotics.

Will this impact my partner/s?

Partners should be treated with antibiotics to avoid reinfection. Sex should be avoided until you are cleared - unless you use a condom/pukoro ure or oral dam.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
