Hello Justice, I am pleased to meet you. Sex is an issue that some feel in doubt about because they do not know what to say or how to approach it. I have written a book about abstinence that answers many question that young children have that will help to answer their questions they may have about sex that their parents can not discuss with them. My book discusses love, sex, marriage, celibacy, incest, drug, unholy music, and satan worship. It is for children. It is to help them understand why God's plan for their life is best. God desires the best for his people. The name of my book is called Practical Guidance About Love, Sex, and Marriage. It can be purchased from Amazon for $21.00. My full name is Faith C. Bays. Go ahead and purchase one and share it with your son or daughter. God Bless!!!

If so are you aware of the $100k prize available for a cure of the sexual side effects that remain after the use and withdrawal of these drugs?
"The problems affect both men and women and cause genital numbness, pleasureless or weak orgasm, impotence, loss of sex drive and other difficulties. They can start after only a few days exposure to these medications and in some cases persist for decades.
We want to change this.
On September 12, 2017, we launched our campaign to raise $100,000 for a Prize which will be offered to anyone who finds a cure for PSSD, PFS or PRSD. This could be a doctor, a scientist, a drug company, a member of the public – anyone."
There has been a number of suggestions that are worth following. Seems like there might be a link to Vit D or anandamide to reduction of symptoms.

EDIT: I've finished writing my thesis. Thank you for all your answers!
For my undergraduate thesis, I surveyed (their family comm patterns, using the RFCP questionnaire) and interviewed parents working overseas about how they discuss sexual and reproductive health with their adolescent children living in their home country. The theory I used for this is the FCPT by Koerner and Fitzpatrick. Now, I'm having trouble visualizing how I'm going to analyze data because the FCPT is a nomothetic theory (please correct me if I'm wrong).
So will the FCPT be able to help me analyze the qualitative data I got from the interviews?
Thanks!

Dear Ian,
this reminds me of a research with users of a sexual health program that targets disadvantaged groups (mainly due to some social stigma associated with one or more traits of the service users) in a remote location. I think a snowball sampling approach could help you irrespective of whether you are administering survey questionnaires or individual interviews but the key thing would be to acknowledge the methodological limitations of this kind of sampling to drawing generalizations.
Thanks

We are modifying some features of the questionnaires that we use during the primary research conducted by our team (the Universanté research) and we plan to insert a questionnaire about sexual risk conducts, with particular attention to the risk of incurring in STDs. Can anyone suggest me some interesting validated questionnaires, possibly in French (or that eventually I can translate in French and validate)?
Thank you!

Although a range of regulations and strategies to strengthen sexual and reproductive health and related rights have been implemented, certain areas required further attention, which include unmet need for contraception, comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents...
What needs to be done to make these strategies holistic? 
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Syed,
From my point of view to transform already set in place policies and stratagies holistic the first step is evaluating these policies and stratigies from a holistic perspective. I understand my suggestions will take time but the first thing I would do is get what is needed to the people in need. If people aren't doing the job with a sense of ergency fire them on the spot in public that will get some attention.
To make preexisting programs and stratgies holisticis a process in which the first step is to step back and critically look at the relationship between the desired result and then match that with the critical question can these preexisting policies and stratigies achive that. Do not think in terms of "well posibily" but can they or not.
Second, Holistic means wholeness as you know but what does that mean region by region? For example, the concept of wholeness in Chili  is not the same concept in Egypt, is not the same in Turkey. Therefore, culture studies are needed and training in critical decession making skills if the life of a mother or child can be saved but cultural beliefs must be set aside the person has has been given that power to do so.
Third, Development of a holistic program for those who are working in this program. It must be made clear that this XYZ is the respectful greating here, this is the respectful way to cummunicate, and so forth?
Fourth, If the goal is truly comprehensive as you list then education is a piece and the development of a comprehensive holistic curriculum is needed is does not based in the frame work of culturalism. This is hard to do and finding the right people who on one hand are being culturaly respectful but one the other are going to teaching the curriculum from a non cultural perspective.
Last, as part of designing the curriculum there must be holistic male adolescent program also. Reproduction is not a one persons endevior.
Sorry one more suggestion,  self and program reflexivity  from a critical perspective must be an ongoing process not an expection every so often. The workes input must be respected from the tolit cleaner to the program directer.
Holistic approaches must act like a whole before it can teach how to be a whole. 
In solidarity

Global Health Law brings attention to critical aspects of law that anyone interested in global health needs to be concerned about. Should sexual and reproductive health and human rights be part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

One of the thematic areas is health and population dynamics. On the website under this topic it says "Many participants stressed the importance of sexual and reproductive health education and rights for young people and their linkage to the ability to get education and employment, especially for girls. This was also seen as a way of empowerment. "

I am interested in conducting a sexual network mapping exercise with men living in a rural community as a means of bringing about/contributing to sexual behaviour change (reduction in multiple concurrent partnerships or at least consistent condom use).
Relevant answer
Answer
I'm assuming that by low-income you are referring to not necessarily having the resources to buy expensive mapping software. With that in mind, there is Epi Map - free from the CDC (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/epiinfo/), which is part of their Epi Info suite. And ArcGIS (from ESRI; http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer) has a free version with limited capabilities, but fine for relatively simple mapping/analysis. I haven't used it, but there is also a free, open-source GIS software called GRASS GIS (http://grass.osgeo.org/). I don't do much GIS work so that's all I'm familiar with at the moment. Good luck!

IUDs are a safe and effective method of contraception. Why aren't we offering them to teens?
Relevant answer
Answer
In the United States, this is related to health care providers' experiences with the Dalkon Shield, an IUD long gone from the market that was associated with pelvic infection and infertility. Modern IUDs are safe, highly effective, rapidly reversible, and are associated with neither infection nor infertility. The World Health Organization (http://bit.ly/9O2oBe) and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (http://1.usa.gov/Wkww0s) guidelines for contraceptive initiation state that age, parity, and relationship status are unrelated to client eligibility for modern IUDs. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists support IUDs as first-line contraception for adolescents (http://bit.ly/OJd2j1).
Health care providers are slowly changing their attitudes about this, but young women in the U.S. remain more likely to be offered an IUD if they are parous. It takes support from everyone working in a health care setting--front desk, manager, health educator, clinician and billing expert--to make IUDs truly accessible to young women.
