Yes, It’s Okay To Talk To Teens About Sex

Family doctors get a unique glimpse into the lives of families in our community. This means that they get to observe the hidden challenges and needs of adolescents when it comes to sexual and reproductive health issues, which are still largely taboo in our society. Family Medicine Specialist Dr Anuradha Thiagarajan dives into the adolescent sexual health issues that are prevalent in our society, and the role of family physicians in talking to children and young people about sexual health.
