New Delhi, Feb 13 (ANI): Studies suggest that Indian adolescents and youth do not receive relevant information on sexual matters from reliable sources. Apart from this, only 26% of adolescent girls know that a condom should be used only once, and only 34% understood that oral contraceptive pills must be taken daily. The lack of maturity and knowledge related to sex and contraception has been due to an overall lack of awareness about sexual and reproductive health in men and women alike in the country. The many factors that impact sexual function and reproduction define sexual health. Examples of these are a variety of physical, mental and emotional factors. Disorders that affect any of these factors can impact a person's physical and emotional health, as well as his or her relationships and self-image. Following these tips would ensure good sexual health. Eat healthy. Healthy food nourishes the body and allows it to be at its best in many situations, including sex. Avoid smoking. Smoking reduces your vitality. Tobacco also leads to constriction of blood vessels including in the genitals. In men, this reduction in the blood flow can lead to difficulty in having or maintaining an erection. In women, it can cause lubrication reduction. Maintain a healthy weight. Overweight or obese people are at a greater risk of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes, which are detrimental to a good sexual health.
