This information is available at hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies; and you can consult with pharmacists at our pharmacy.
Safe Sex Life
Good sexual reproductive and sexual health calls for safe sex life, which is also tied to the ability to reproduce. While some forms of contraceptives i.e. condoms work in ensuring safe sex, other forms of contraceptives go the extra mile of ensuring the freedom to decide if, when, and how often one is interested in having children. Thus, family planning is a vital part of reproductive health. Speak to your doctor or a healthcare professional and exhaustively investigate before picking a contraceptive option.
Protection from Sexually Transmitted Illnesses.
In an age where sex is not as big a taboo as it previously was, infection control is important.

Talking with your doctor or gynecologist is one way to gather the necessary information. Additionally, you can be proactive enough to schedule body checkups.
