Ask Dr Amy

We’ve got your sexual health questions covered!

Have you ever had a question about sex or relationships but were too embarrassed to verbalise it?
You know, those questions about certain discharges, weird things that happen in the middle of a sexual encounter, that kind of thing.

Luckily, our new Ask Dr Amy segment is here to enlighten us on the questions we are a bit reluctant to put out there.

Want to get involved? Submit your question and Dr Amy will answer them. We’ll be publishing your answered questions on our Ask Dr Amy news post.

To keep updated you can also sign up to our Youth Newsletter.
