The best way to make this decision is to talk to your family, friends or health professional (doctor, nurse, social worker).

If you’re thinking about having sex it’s also good to know…

  • The risk of different sexual activities. Some activities are more risky than others. Know the risk (high or low) before you start.
  • Information on different sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how they are passed on. Go to a library, works office, sex store or community health organization and find information on this. You can also talk to a health professional or check out the section on STIs.
