Talk To Your Doctor About Sexual Health

You and your doctor are a team. The doctor is trained to know about the workings of the body and you provide the personal details for diagnosis and care. The National Coalition for Sexual Health has created a guide to inform men and women of all ages about sexual health. It focuses on the preventive services that can help protect and improve your sexual health. The guide explains these recommended services and helps you talk with a health care provider.
