Saeeda always had an open and honest relationship with her daughter. Yet when it came to protecting her daughter’s sexual health she knew she needed to put a doctor in her daughter’s pocket.
“My daughter was entering university and leaving home for the first time. I knew that I wanted her to have access to someone who could answer the questions she wouldn’t feel comfortable asking me.”
Becoming sexually active is a milestone that comes with many questions. Many of those are not always comfortable to ask or answer.
“I wanted to give my daughter an option to get her sexual health questions answered that isn’t relying on her friends or the internet.”
Googling your symptoms can be Problematic
A 2007 study found that almost 40 % of medical articles on Wikipedia contained ‘critical omissions.’ Considering this is one of the most frequently visited medical sources online, this is very concerning.
“I wasn’t comfortable or knowledgeable enough to talk to my daughter about her sex life. I knew I wanted to make sure she was getting her questions answered by a real doctor,” said Saeeda.

Protect Your Health and Your Fertility
Taking care of yourself when you have a cold or flu is second nature-but what about when you are having symptoms associated with an STD?
Many sexually transmitted infections and diseases cause many uncomfortable and often embarrassing symptoms that require treatment. Yet treating the symptoms of an STD or STI is just one part of protecting your health. Prevention is key to protect your sexual health. Putting a doctor in the pocket of a young sexually active person is a valuable asset.
“My daughter doesn’t share with me what she discusses with the doctors on the app, but she has chatted with the doctors several times. She gets the answers she needs while still keeping her private life private.”
Protecting your sexual health can also help protect your fertility. Many STDs and STIs can cause little to no symptoms, especially in women, but can lead to infertility. Chlamydia is a common culprit.
