Why sexual health matters
People generally like to feel healthy; they
eat well to lose a bit of weight, they give up smoking to cough and
splutter less, they take up hobbies to keep their mind active, they
drink alcohol in moderation so they can grow older and enjoy life…
but how do we look after our sexual health? Why is it
Sex covers a very large part of our lives, it
can identify who we are with our gender and sexual orientation.
Physical sex affects us physically and mentally, the act of sex may
leave us feeling secure and loved or it may leave us feeling hurt
and vulnerable or anywhere between.
In the same way we look after other aspects of
our health we need to give some attention to sexual health
otherwise sexual ill-health or even an unplanned pregnancy can
suddenly become part of our lives.

the issues people who live in Medway face and the services that are
