Your education on sex is important, whilst it may seem intriguing to you it carries a lot of risks including Pregnancy, Sexual Harassment and Sexually transmitted Infections (STI’s)

Questions you can ask your doctor:
• What are the risks of having sex?
• How will I know whether I’m ready to have sex?
• How can I practice safe sex?
• What are the ways I can prevent from being pregnant?
• Are there any vaccines I should get before I have sex?
• I had sex with no birth control, what can I do next?
• How do I know whether I’m in poor sexual health?
• What can I do if I have any infections such as STI’S or HIV?
