Sexual Health: Testing and Contraception
Don't Let Embarrassment Become a Health Risk
Nearly as many women as men buy and carry condoms. And many people use them — every time they have sexual intercourse. If you are embarrassed to talk with your partner about using condoms, practice before you are in a sexual situation. Then, choose the right time to talk — don't wait until the heat of passion takes over. It may overwhelm your good intentions.
Don't be shy — be direct. Be honest about your feelings and needs. It can help create a relaxed mood to make sex more enjoyable.
Talking is easier if you are in a respectful relationship that makes you feel happy and good about yourself and your partner. In any case, don't let embarrassment become a health risk.
USING CONDOMS WILL PREVENT STD/HIV/AIDS:
What you ask will
save your life,
What you tell will
save many lives.
Get tested. Ask questions. Learn to live.
"Two-thirds of all new cases of STDs are found in those 25 years or younger, Infections are so common in people of that age group." Sharon Broom, ASHA
Condoms are effective protection against STD transmission if used consistently and correctly.
