The concept of sexual health is relatively new and had been subsumed under reproductive health. With developments (Dixon Mueller 1993) attempted to divide the elements of reproductive health care into two categories – sexual health comprising of protection from STDs, protection from harmful practices and violence, control over sexual access and information on sexuality. The component of reproductive health on the other hand include factors like safe protection from unwanted pregnancies, contraceptive choice and satisfaction with method, protection from harmful reproductive practices, treatment of infertility, contraceptive and reproductive information. From these two categories it is clear that sexual health and reproductive health are related, therefore, for the purpose of this paper the two concepts will be used together or interchangeably. The paper opines that access to sexual health information provides important options for the sexually active adolescents to develop their full human potential.
