Dear Doctor Sue

Why?

It is important for you to learn how to protect yourself from HIV.

Doctors and other health workers are a good source of information about protection from HIV/STD.

How?

1. Pretend you are a doctor and must answer each of the letters below.

2. Use the information from the “Doctor’s bag” to help you answer the letters.

Dear Dr. Sue, I am 14 years old and I have a problem and I don’t know who else to turn to. I have been going with a boy for 6 months. Now he tells me we are ready for sex. I told him that I wasn’t but now he says I don’t love him. He said he will find another girl if we don’t have sex. I do love him and I don’t want to lose him. He says everyone’s doing it.

Dr. Sue

Dear Dr. Sue, lam writing to you because I’m worried about my brother. Abrine has left home and is sleeping in the streets with other kids. He doesn’t get much sleep or food and he smokes when he can get cigarettes. He and three friends cut their hands with a knife and touched blood to show they were brothers. He thinks he might have an STD and might need treatment.

Dear Dr. Sue, I hope you can help me. I am a girl 16 years old who has had sex with three different boys and I didn’t use any protection. Today we learned at school about AIDS/STD and pregnancy. I think I might be pregnant and now I am very worried about having AIDS or an STD. What can I do?
