About the Author

Dr. Eleanor Draeger

Consultant in Genitourinary Medicine

Dr. Eleanor Draeger has 10 years experience as a Sexual Health Doctor, including 4 years working as a Consultant in Genitourinary Medicine in a busy urban integrated sexual health and family planning clinic.  Her special interests include HPV vaccination, treatment of genital warts, recurrent vaginal discharge and vulvodynia. After seeing countless young patients attend her clinic who were only there because of a lack of comprehensive, accurate sex education, the natural step to take was to move into sex education herself.  She is currently working for the Sex Education Forum (http://www.sexeducationforum.org.uk) as a Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Trainer. This role involves training teachers how to deliver good quality RSE.
