A girl is unclean when she is having her periods.
Just like girls have periods monthly, boys have whitish fluid that comes out during their sleep associated with dreams.
If a child is sexually abused she can get HIV infection, if the abuser was living with HIV.
A pregnant woman needs to have at least three antenatal checkups, two shots of tetanus and take their iron and calcium tablets daily for a healthy motherhood and delivery.
It is safer to deliver in a hospital than at home.
Most sexually transmitted infections are treatable.
Adolescents with physical and mental challenges (deformities) are safe from sexual abuse.
Breast milk given soon after birth to a child is best for the child.
Masturbation is natural and not sinful.
Sexual feelings can be experienced by girls , boys and transgender.
Using a condom correctly implies protected sex.
