Monday 26th September is World Contraception Day, perhaps one of the more important ‘Awareness Days’ of the year. First launched in 2007, the aim is to inform young people to help them make more sensible and smart choices regarding their sexual lifestyle.
According to Public Health England, people aged 15 to 24 make up around 36% of gonorrhoea, chlamydia, genital warts, herpes and syphilis diagnoses in 2015. However it’s not only young people who need to be informed. Shockingly, a survey that the Family Planning Association ran found that 68% of the general public had never had a STI test.
To help test your knowledge this Contraception Day, charity Plan UK have put together a new quiz with various questions about different types of contraception and sexual health myths from around the world. Although a lot of the myths featured in quiz seem quite harmless, they do have a serious impact on sexual health and well-being around the world.
