While topics about contraception remain taboo in Malaysia, some have begun to realize the importance of family planning. Proper and effective family planning does not only protect our physical and mental health but also prevents financial struggles and child abandonment caused by unplanned pregnancies. In fact, family planning should be considered an important part of adulthood!
Unfortunately, there are still many Malaysians who do not have adequate knowledge when it comes to family planning and contraception. Ever wondered how much you know about family planning and sexual health? Put your knowledge to the test by taking the quiz below!

Sex education is an integral aspect that ensures our physical health and the quality of life in general. How much do you know about sex education taught in schools? Find out by answering this quiz!
So, how did you do? Are you a pro or a noob when it comes to family planning? Either way, no matter how much you know about contraception, it is always wise to keep yourself informed about the latest information regarding sexual health. Instead of browsing through unverified information online, we highly encourage you to try the Ask Maya chatbot!
Ask Maya is established by Bayer Co Malaysia, a pharmaceutical company, which seeks to empower women to make informed decisions regarding family planning. This initiative is also supported by the Federation of Reproductive Health Associations (FRHAM) and Malaysian Pharmacists Society-Young Pharmacists Chapter (MPS-YPC).
To equip Malaysians with adequate knowledge about contraception and sexual health, Ask Maya actively engages followers and readers through informative Facebook posts and blog posts on the HOWUKNOW website. The Ask Maya chatbot is built to provide users with accurate and verified information regarding family planning anytime and anywhere. Besides that, Ask Maya has also provided Malaysians with a telepharmacy, which offers free virtual consultation sessions with certified pharmacists on DOC2US!
Telepharmacy is a concept that allows us to receive healthcare consultations from licensed pharmacists through remote means, such as phone calls, text messages, and online chats. This means that we do not have to physically visit a healthcare institution in order to obtain professional advice. How convenient!
DOC2US utilizes such a concept to cater not only to individuals who are anxious about leaving their homes during the pandemic but also to those who are too shy to talk about contraception in person. The goals of this brilliant initiative are to:
- Raise awareness and educate the public about sexual health, contraception methods, and the importance of family planning.
- Reduce cases of unplanned and unwanted pregnancy, which is often the cause of child abandonment and financial struggles within families.
- Debunk widely believed myths surrounding family planning and contraception by providing verified information and professional consultation.
- Equip women with adequate and accurate knowledge regarding contraception, so that they can make informed decisions during family planning to protect their physical and emotional health, as well as living quality.
Other than the FREE consultation on DOC2US, DOC2US is also offering FREE delivery and FREE Oxwhite face masks!
Now you know where to refer for the latest and most accurate information about contraception! It’s about time we overcome the cultural taboo surrounding family planning and start equipping ourselves with the useful knowledge that protects our health and living quality!
