As a teenager or as an adult who is sexually active, it is of utmost importance that you have valuable information available to you, to ultimately become knowledgeable about how families become families, how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, and ensure your body is functioning correctly.
There are a number of online resources available to help you get an idea, but when it comes down to the real information that will be 100% relevant to you, having a family planning GP (Doctor) in your corner is certainly something that will benefit you in the long run.
What Can Family Planning Doctors Help With?
Whether you are planning a family, trying to prevent one from accidentally starting, or just want some general information on whether your body is acting normally, your doctor will be available to provide you with information, and methods that can help you with whatever it is you need.
Family planning doctors don’t just cater for pregnancy however, they are also well trained in which contraceptives might suit you best, they have a range of information about subjects like menopause and pap smears, they have a high understanding and knowledge of different types of STD’s, and preventative measures, as well as information on healthy relationships, and how to maintain them.
If you are sexually active it is important to frequently visit a family planning GP for sexual health checks, to discuss any sexual health questions you may have, and ensure your body and relationships remain healthy.
Family Planning – Not Just for Women
It is also important to know that family planning GP’s are not specifically for females as well. Sexually active males should visit a family planning GP for the same reasons as women, to ensure questions or issues revolving around family planning, STD prevention, unwanted pregnancies are discussed, and to ensure that you maintain a positive and healthy sexual health.
