Sex... the 3 letter word
Sometimes, it seems like S.E.X. is a 3 letter word. When said out loud, it always gets people’s attention! But talking about sex with your friends is way different than talking about sex with you parents. Of course, it’s great to be open with your parents and to have some pretty intense “talks”. But let’s face it. How do you say “Mom, my penis is red and burning. Any ideas?” or “Dad, I just started my period. Why do my boobs hurt so much?” It just doesn’t work out that way. That’s why YAC exists… the other 3-letter word!
YAC (Young Adult Centre) is a drop-in centre where you can talk to a public health nurse about any health-related issue. You can get one-on-one counselling on birth control, sexuality, relationships, lifestyle, and life skills issues to help you decide what's best for you. At YAC, they’re always ready to listen without judging and will answer any of your questions. Plus, everything you say is confidential. YAC even offers treatment for some infections and girls can get Pap smears done (to detect cervical cancer and some STDs).
