Sexual Health

Sexual health deals with issues such as unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and safer sex practices.

Sexually transmitted infections

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are contracted during unprotected sex and their symptoms vary widely. You can reduce the risk by practising safe sex, through the use of condoms.

However, as condoms do not offer 100% protection, a better option is for a couple to be in a monogamous and faithful relationship. 

Common STIs

  • HIV, the virus that causes AIDS
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Herpes
  • Syphilis
  • Genital warts

If you suspect that you have an infection, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. It is important to treat STIs early to reduce complications and stop the spread of infection to others.

To look after your reproductive health, visit your doctor regularly. Practise family planning so you'll never have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy or about passing an infection to your child.

It’s best to see your gynaecologist for a check. Common causes for bleeding after intercourse include small abrasions or lacerations, cervical polyps or abnormal changes in the cervix ( pap smear abnormalities).

Hi, thanks for the question. How long will the bleeding last after first penetration? Normally it will last for a few hours after the first penetration due to trauma of the hymen, but it depends on the elasticity of the hymen. In your case, if i’m not mistaken, you ...

there's a very similar question on Microgynon usage, and chances of pregnancy here . Essentially, you are protected from getting pregnant after 7 days of consistent use of birth control pills. Consistent usage means that you’re taking the pill every day. If taken c...

It is usually related to a change in pH or local bacterial flora. This is turn is most commonly caused by frequent douching, recent antibiotic use, occasionally related to change in partners. Diet, not so much so!

Hi, good question! Both have similar symptoms, and often get mistaken for each other. Below are the main differences between the 2: First of all, it's important to note that both have completely different treatments! Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of fu...

It will be hard to ascertain, but if you have no symptoms, it may well be some prostatic fluid/seminal fluid that was exuded due to increased intra-abdominal pressure. That said, a STD evaluation should still be done, as each encounter should be treated separately. Do follow...

I don’t quite get your story, as it’s the 13th today, not the 14th (unless you can somehow peer into the future). Even so, one day is pretty quick for the symptoms you’ve described to appear – so I’m going to work with the assumption that this is no...

This can potentially increase your risk of contracting lower genital tract infections including sexually transmitted diseases. It may be better for your partner to wash before engaging in vaginal sex with you in this case.

Thanks for the question. I think that the risk of catching HIV through a manicure is extremely low. Most good manicure establishments do use equipment that have been sterilized. However, even if the equipment used was not sterile, the risk of catching HIV is very low. Firstly...

My opening advice is to encourage you to use a reliable family planning method at all times, if you are sexually active and are not planning to start a family. Of all reversible methods of contraception, the hormonal methods are the most effective; and the birth control pill is...
