In Partnership With

At MyCatholicDoctor we recognize parents as the primary teachers of their children, especially regarding issues of sexuality. Parents– not doctors, teachers, politicians, or anyone else– make decisions about how and when to teach their children about sexuality, puberty, marriage, and intimate relationships.

But teaching kids about sex can be hard. We are here to help you. From first periods to pornography to the physiology of hormones, we have options that will help you authentically teach your children about human sexuality with the beauty and truth of Catholicism. Choose from self-guided online video courses, books, one-on-one teachers, and more.

Below, please find our list of recommended resources for Catholic puberty education, Catholic Sex Ed, and more.

In addition to the below resources, MyCatholicDoctor also offers private video sessions with fertility educators and physicians, and we can bill your insurance for these visits. Many people start with online videos and/or books and then schedule private consultations with our clinicians to ask questions and help young women learn to chart their cycles using a specific fertility awareness method.

What teenagers and adults need to know to understand about traditional Catholic Church teaching on contraception.
