Sexual Health

Welcome to the sexual health section of the website. These pages contain information to help you navigate the sexual choices that feel right for you. Some general sexual health tips to keep in mind:

Get regular medical care. If you are sexually active, this medical care should include getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Practice safer sex (like using condoms or dental dams) every time you have sex to prevent STI transmission.

If you are having sex with someone of the opposite gender, research the contraceptive options that are available. Use these methods in conjunction with, not instead of safer sex methods. For example, if you are using the pill, remember that this will only work to prevent pregnancy, and you should also use a condom to prevent STI transmission.

You may also find it useful to explore the sexuality section, which includes information on female orgasmsex toyserectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

Every year, college newspapers all over the country advertise large amounts of money to college students who donate their eggs. The BDH is no exception, and we want to make sure that any student considering egg donation fully understands the process.

Egg donation is a complicated medical procedure that involves extensive screenings, hormone injections, several medical visits and minor and major side effects. This is a relatively unregulated industry and sometimes the large sums of money promised in advertisements don't represent the typical amount that a donor receives.
