All teens benefit from sex education. Your teen’s school may provide basic information about sex, but they may not understand all the shared information or how it specifically affects them and their health.
It’s important for parents to have follow-up discussions with their teens about sex. To support your efforts, the Arizona Women's Specialists team provides teen sex education for its young patients.
The specifics of teen sex education for your adolescent girl depends on their age, health needs, sexual history, and sexual knowledge. Before having any discussions, the team at Arizona Women's Specialists spends time talking with your teen, making them feel comfortable and safe.
Some of the topics the Arizona Women's Specialists team may discuss include:
Rates of teen pregnancy are on the decline in the United States. One of the reasons pregnancy rates are decreasing is because of the use of birth control.
Arizona Women's Specialists provides birth control counseling and prescriptions, helping your teen daughter find the method that helps protect them from unintended pregnancies when they’re sexually active.
Teen sex education at Arizona Women's Specialists includes a discussion about STDs, which are infections passed through sexual contact.
More than 20 million people in the United States get an STD diagnosis every year, and more than half of those people are between the ages of 15 and 24.
Arizona Women's Specialists talks to your teen about STDs, how they affect health, and the steps they can take to protect themselves from infection. The team also talks about STD testing and when they need it.
Arizona Women's Specialists provides teen sex education to help young girls and teens take control of their health and their body. Providing them with the education and tools they need to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs benefits their current and future health.
Unplanned pregnancies, especially for young girls, affect physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Additionally, STDs may have long-term health effects — infertility or gynecological cancer — when left undiagnosed or untreated.
Teen sex education is a difficult subject, but one you don’t have to have all on your own. For professional teen sex education, call Arizona Women's Specialists or book an appointment online today.
