Are you aware of yourself and your sexual health?

Sexual health is a big part of life. It can affect and is affected by other aspects of health. This includes physical, mental, emotional, and social health. Being in good sexual health means you are well informed, careful, and respectful to yourself and others. It also means enjoying yourself sexually in a way you are comfortable with.



Most people learn about sexuality and sex early on. You may have discussions with parents, siblings, teachers, or mentors. Or you may discover it on your own. You learn about gender and genitalia. You learn about what sex is and the risks it carries. Risks include pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and sexual abuse. It is important to learn as much as you can about sex. The more informed you are, the more prepared you are to make good choices.


There are many ways to protect your sexual health and care for yourself. If you decide to be sexually active, you may want to consider a form of birth control. Different types include a condom, pill, patch, shot, implant, diaphragm, or intrauterine device (IUD). These can help prevent unwanted pregnancy. Condoms are the only method to help prevent STIs. Talk to your doctor before you start having sex. They will talk to you more about safety, risks, and prevention. They can answer any questions you have about sexual health.


Another part of sexual health is communication. Talk about sex to a doctor, parent, or adult you trust. It is best to be honest with questions and concerns. You also need to be direct and clear with the partner you are sexually interested in. Talk about your expectations and set boundaries. Do not let them, or other peers, pressure you into anything. You should only do things that you agree, or consent, to do. If you find yourself in a situation like this, tell the person “no.” Then leave the situation and tell someone you trust about it. They can protect you and get you help, if needed.
