Sexual health can be hard to talk about at any age. But knowing the types of common problems that can occur and what you can do to treat them might make talking about this sensitive subject a little easier.

Women's sexual health issues are often related to menstrual cycles, sex, infection, birth control methods, aging, medicines, or changes after pregnancy. Men's sexual health issues can range from erection problems to sexually transmitted infections to genital injuries. No matter what the problem, our topics can help you learn more about sexual health and what you can do to maintain it.

If you or someone in your care has chest pains, difficulty breathing, or severe bleeding, it could be a life-threatening emergency. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number immediately.
