Sex and intimacy

Talking about sex, intimacy and relationships doesn’t have to be awkward. 

At our recent conference experts joined us to give tips on managing those intimate conversations with a partner or asking your doctor or nurse questions about sex.

And then they answered community questions in a lively and open discussion about sex and relationships if you have a bleeding disorder. It's not all about having babies! (although it is sometimes)

Awkward conversations - talking about sex and intimacy
