Taking Care of Your Sexual Health 2022
We live in an age where medication and medical treatment surround us in abundance. There has never been a point in history where medicine has been so effective. It is literally the best time to be alive! Our ancestors would have done anything to have the hospital care we have today. A simple cold or infection could have proven lethal to them. However, despite all of this care, we still neglect certain aspects of our health. While we do not think twice about going to the doctor to have our annual general health check-up, how many of us go to examine the condition of our sexual health?
Sexual health is a topic that has been taboo in many countries for many years. Sexual intercourse was hush-hush for centuries in countries around Europe and in the UK. In the last 60 years, there has been a sort of liberation of sexuality, and now, we can freely discuss sex and our sexual health. Here are some ways you can maintain your sexual health with these new developments.
This is the simplest and most effective. If you have several sexual partners and you do not use contraception, then you should be availing of the services of a sexual health clinic. If you have had a long-term partner but have never been tested for an STI, then you should also visit a sexual health clinic. It is time to take your sexual health into your own hands.
If you are having intercourse with many different partners, then you should be using condoms. This is a must. There is no quicker way, in fact, there is only one way to catch an STI and that is through not wearing protection when having intercourse with an infected person. Oral sex can also be a cause of transmission.
There you have it. Two simple ways to avoid STIs. Wear condoms and make use of your local sexual health clinic. We live in a world where there is an abundance of medical care ready for us to use. Do not neglect your sexual health. Many infections are slow to surface and can lead to infertility.
