I always want to know more about what sexual healthcare is like for people around the world. Want to weigh in?

Where do you live?

Do you have to pay for any or all of your healthcare, or can you use any national/public healthcare services?

What kind of sexual healthcare can you access in your area at your age: contraception, sexual health exams (like pap smears), STI testing and treatment...?

Are there any social/cultural barriers to getting sexual healthcare where you are, like problems getting access based on age, gender, being trans, gay or lesbian, or having sex outside the context of marriage?

Are there any tangible/actual dangers for you, culturally, in seeking out sexual healthcare?

Are young people generally treated well in your experience in getting sexual healthcare where you are?

Do you feel like all or any kinds of sexual healthcare are or are not supported overall in your culture or location?
