February is set aside as Reproductive Health Month, the term reproductive health refers to the well-being of men, women and young people as it concerns their productive functions. An important part of reproductive health is making sure that men and women have a safe and enjoyable sexual relationship and can decide freely if, when and how often to have babies.
