The decision to have sex is significant, and there are many things to consider before becoming sexually active. Sexual relationships affect your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Whether you are considering sexual activity or have already had sex, there are risks for pregnancy and STDs, even when using birth control or condoms.
If you’re in school and are navigating the sometimes murky waters of relationships, we can help.
Choosing Healthy Relationships
No matter your age, relationships can be tricky. Today, relationships are often undefined or ill-defined, making them even more challenging. Emotions can run high, making it difficult to understand what’s important and what’s not in a partner.
Let’s discuss pursuing healthy relationships so you can feel empowered to make the best decisions for your physical and emotional health.
Sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) aren’t fun to discuss, but they’re even less fun to deal with if contracted. They can significantly impact your health and, in some cases, have life-altering consequences.
We offer information on the different types of STDs and how to avoid them. We can refer you for free, confidential testing too. Your health is important, and you have immense value. You deserve to know how to protect your health and body from anything that would pose a threat.
Practicing abstinence is the only sure way to avoid getting an STD and prevent pregnancy. Once you are in a long-term, mutually monogamous, and committed relationship with an uninfected partner (in marriage), you will have no reason to worry about getting an STD.
Sexual Risk Avoidance
Finally, we offer education and resources on sexual risk avoidance. Because your life and body have value, you deserve to be in a relationship with someone who treats you with the respect and care you deserve. We can coach you on avoiding sexually-risky relationships so you can treat your life and body respectfully, too.
