Sometimes talking about your sexual health feels like taboo. It makes some people uncomfortable or some even feel that they aren’t ready to talk about it. But sexual health isn’t just talking about sex.
Sexual health also includes information about your changing body, like puberty and menstruation. There are details you should know and be aware of so that if something is wrong, you know what to do. Educating yourself helps you understand what is normal with your body, but even so, everyone’s body does things a little differently.
If you’re just starting high school or heading off to college, the information provided here on your body – for both young women and men – birth control, infections, and sexually transmitted diseases will be beneficial to you.
While abstaining or avoiding certain activities and situations may make people feel safe – whether it be for moral or religious reasons, education is still important. Ultimately, the choices are up to you, but it is better to be safe through education than not knowing anything at all.
