Our Reproduction Program is now co-ed; and it should have been co-ed all along. Here’s why.

Separating boys and girls for discussions about sex and sexual health creates a setting enshrouded in mystery and secrecy. In most...

Every October, people put on their pink and remind us to take care of our tatas. With breast cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (ultimately affecting 1 in 8 over a lifetime), far-reaching campaigns are...

Although exceedingly rare, toxic shock syndrome is a serious, life-threatening, condition that has a higher occurrence during menstruation, particularly among teens and young adults. It isn't always associated with menstruation,...

"One of my friends recently posted an article on her personal Facebook page about how to protect your kids from sexual abuse. I had chimed in originally with some abbreviated answer, and she wanted to have me delve into the subject...

Wonder what your teen really NEEDS? We've got you covered! There's nothing to wrap and it's all FREE and PRICELESS. DOWNLOAD our list!

We don't usually promote products (and we're not being paid by any of these folks...) but we love great gifts! We talked with some of our Girlologists across the country and found out what they are giving some of their own...

Recently, our middle schooler, a rising seventh grader, casually mentioned seeing some of her classmates vaping in a parking lot. I found myself in one of those moments as a mom for which I was unprepared to talk but knew that is...

There is nothing new about sharing a nude photo with a beloved. You just used to have to go to a seedy photography shop to get your film developed, or use a Polaroid and hand it over. The chances of lots of people seeing the photo...

If you use the word vagina when referring to female parts “down below,” let me first say we’re proud of you for NOT using hoo ha, or cootchie, or lady bits… or junk. We’ve come a long way toward creating comfort around using the...
