If you’re already having sex or thinking about having sex for the first time, you probably have a lot of questions about sexual wellness. Some may feel awkward to ask, or you may not know where to go to find answers. Check out this section for answers and places to get more information.

Sexual wellness is not only about preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancy.  It’s also about stuff like understanding your sexuality and practicing sexual safety.

Sex can be tricky to talk about, mostly because our views and experiences of sex can be complicated. Things like family upbringing, religious beliefs, and peer groups can influence our values and attitudes towards sex. On top of that, many of us have not had much experience talking about sex and sexuality with our family, friends, or even in school.

One of the most important things to remember is that everybody is different. What feels right for somebody else might not feel right for you. If you are thinking about becoming sexually active, ask yourself if it is what you want.  Or is it something you feel pressured to do.

The information in this section will help you make choices that are safe and respectful for everyone.
