Sexual Health Information for Teens, Second Edition offers updated facts about the sexual issues today's teens face. It describes reproductive anatomy and the physical and emotional changes that accompany puberty and emerging sexuality, including sensitive issues such as contraception, masturbation, oral sex, and sexual orientation. It offers facts about activities that can put teens at risk for unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. The long-term consequences of untreated sexually transmitted infections and infections for which no cure currently exists - including cervical and other cancers, liver disease, pelvic inflammatory disease, and infertility - are also discussed. The book concludes with a directory of resources for further information and suggestions for additional reading.
