General Health Information for Teens
Health is a very complicated topic. It not only includes all the organs of your body, but your emotions, relationships with others, and your life-style (or the choices you make).
It is so complicated, in fact, that we cannot tell you everything there is to know. We can however, provide some basic information about teen health. It's also important to remember that there are adults in your life who can answer many of your questions. Talk to someone you are comfortable with a parent, school counselor, extended family member like an aunt or uncle or your doctor. Even if they or you have been reluctant or embarrassed to start the conversation, they really do want to talk to you.

If you need more information - search through the site, and if you still don't find your answer, speak with your doctor. Health is a very complicated topic.
