Importance of Sexual Health
Starting a new or first relationship is an exciting time but we must not get so carried away that we forget to protect ourselves from unwanted Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) or unplanned pregnancies. Your sexual health not only impacts your overall health but it also affects your mood, social life and your emotional and mental health.
By practicing safe sex, staying informed and aware of the risks involved, and knowing how to deal with them can help you maintain healthy sexual life and avoid unwanted pregnancies.
