Your body is yours and yours alone. It’s going to be with you for life so it’s in your best interests to get to know how it works.
When it comes to your sexual health, whatever your gender or sexuality, it’s best to know all about your body. Knowing more about your body will help you have better, healthier sex, if that’s what you want. It will also help you to understand if there’s something wrong and help you with finding out what to do if you have worries about your body.
You are not alone in worrying about your body. The appearance, shape, and size of genitals vary from person to person as much as the shape and size of other body parts. There is a wide range of what is considered normal. Observing your own body can help you to learn what is normal for you.
If you know what is normal for you, then if you find any changes you can seek advice from your GP or sexual health services. Remember that early detection and treatment is the best, so don’t embarrassed to ask.
As you get older your body goes through a number of changes, called puberty, and the speed of these changes is different for everyone.
