Reproductive health refers only to healthy reproductive functions. Comment.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), reproductive health means a total well-being in all aspects of reproduction, i.e., physical, emotional, behavioural and social. That is normal functioning of all the reproductive organs.
So a society with people having physically and functionally normal reproductive organs and normal emotional and behavioural interactions among them in all sex-related aspects might be called reproductively healthy and not just healthy reproductive functions.
