Lack of awareness associated with sexual
health has led to the spread of a lot of myths.
And shyness to discuss the intimate health and question
the facts especially in a conservative country like India
has further facilitated the spread of false news misleading
To provide education vital for your intimate needs, below are
some of the most popular and important myths doing the rounds.
Mouth-to-mouth contact or skin contact with an infected person
can pass on certain sexually transmitted diseases such as oral herpes.
The same happens during oral sex. So it is better to know the status of
your partner before indulging into any intimate activity.
Though it is always advisable, sticking to one partner does
not guarantee protection from STI. If your partner is infected,
even a single encounter of unprotected sex (vaginal, oral or anal),
genital rubbing, sharing sex toys or other intimate acts can pass on
Cleaning your vaginal area externally does not prevent pregnancy or spread of infections as the
semen can travel into the uterus quite fast. Also, douching can push the semen further up into the
uterus. It can in turn, wash off the useful bacteria found in the vagina resulting in infections. Urination
is of no help, as urine is excreted from the urethra while semen is ejaculated in the vagina.
Taking careful informed decisions is necessary to preserve your sexual health and enjoy the intimate moments to the fullest.
