Sexual health is an integral part of living an authentic life. Making sexual health a priority can significantly improve a person’s emotional, physical, and mental well-being, as well as enhance their intimate relationships and quality of life.
Poor sexual health can lead to a host of adverse consequences. Coercion, and also a lack of education or sexual health resources can lead to unintended pregnancy and STIs. Failing to communicate with doctors can also cause long-term physical health consequences. An unknown, untreated STI can cause the disease to spread, and even cause permanent health issues in the patient. Being unable to communicate in sexual and romantic relationships can cause emotional pain and distress, and severely impact the quality of someone’s life.
