All of the information presented on our website is relevant to teens, women, and men. These pages are devoted to health issues specific to teens. Teens may also want to visit teenwire.com®, the award-winning Planned Parenthood website that gives teens honest and medically accurate information about sexuality and relationships.
Planned Parenthood believes that becoming a sexually healthy adult is an important part of adolescent development. We also believe that maturing adolescents can learn to make healthy decisions, foster communication skills, develop meaningful relationships, and express affection, love, and intimacy in ways that are consistent with their personal values. And we believe that adults play an important role in supporting young people during this time.
