Sexual Health

The articles on this page are informative articles on the different types of contraception available, basic information on sexual intercourse, and information on sexually transmitted infections/diseases (STI/STDs). Please be aware that most places have laws regulating who may, and may not, engage in sexual intercourse and other sexual acts. The most common of these being sex between a partner under 18 and a partner over 18.

We are providing this information because we understand that it can be very difficult for people to speak with an adult in their life about these topics, or that they may not have a trusted adult to speak to. The RYL First Aid Advisors don’t advocate one type of contraception over another, nor do we encourage or discourage people from participating in sexual activities. We advise people to make their own decisions based on what is best for themselves, and not to let people pressure them into anything they may not be ready for.

The articles may be triggering to some. We have made our best effort to write this article using medical terms, explanations and descriptions. Things may seem presented bluntly because the information is being presented in the most direct form possible to make it easier to understand. We have chosen this rather than using euphemisms so that it is understandable to people from all areas.
