I’m turning 25 and I have

itching in my private part.

I don’t know what it is. Can you

please help me.

Dr Eve answers:

Itchiness, bad smells,

bleeding and pain with

intercourse are all signs that

you have an infection.

Never feel ashamed about being

sexual. Rather go to a clinic and

get treated, and take along your

latest sexual partner.

At the clinic ask for counselling

about safer sex and reproductive

health. Get onto contraception and

learn how to use and negotiate

condoms. In this way, you will avoid

sexually transmitted infections.
