Did you know that adolescents begin engaging in sexual intercourse by 16 or 17yrs of age?
Because as one grows up and one’s body starts changing, your emotions, moods, and sexual feelings are much stronger, and this can drive young people into indulging in sex. Due to ignorance, lack of access to accurate info and services pushes these young people into practicing risky sexual behaviors such as multiple sexual partners, unsafe sex, etc. As a result, they increase the risk of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancy.
