Sex is a natural part of most people’s lives, but one that can be difficult to talk about.

When young people first have sex they can have many concerns and insecurities about their bodies and their sexual ‘performance’.

Young people can struggle with issues around their sexual identity – whether straight, gay, bisexual or something in between. These concerns last into adult life for many people.

Ageing presents its own challenges around sexual desire, health problems affecting the comfort or physical ability to have sex and relationship issues.

People often feel embarrassed talking to their friends or family and may even feel the same about discussing these issues with their family doctor.

The doctors at Cairns Doctors have experience and an interest in sexual issues so you can talk freely to your doctor about your most personal concerns.
