becoming pregnant unintentionally [2]. You can do something to prevent becoming a statistic! Talking Sex
by Susie Wang According to the 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, by freshman year of high school, one out of every three students have had sex and by senior year of high school, two out of three have had sex.

Statistics state that less than two thirds of students have had sex with a condom the last time they had sex. Sex Statistics By age 25, half of the people in the US will have contracted some sort of STD. What can you do to protect yourself? We need to start from the
beginning..... There are values you need to develop in yourself before dealing with relationships and sex.
good self esteem respect confidence You need to feel good about yourself. Building confidence and self-worth may be difficult but you can do things to boost your self-esteem.

Engage in hobbies and extracurricular activities
See the positive side of things, everyone makes mistakes Your bodies are not gross, dirty, shameful, embarrassing, you should take care of your bodies and be conscious of what you do with them. Your bodies are worthy of respect. You are important, your feelings, your opinions and concerns matter. It is important that you stand up for yourself, the person in control is not always right and you shouldn’t always do what you are told. Relationships You need to learn the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship Healthy Relationship

A healthy relationship includes trust, respect, understanding, kindness, and equality. In a healthy relationship, two people talk to each other in a respectful way, put in equal effort, and the relationship adds to their overall happiness.
Unhealthy Relationship

When your partner puts you down or hurts you, it is an unhealthy relationship. One in five teens in a relationship have been hit, slapped, or pushed by their partner and one in four teens have been verbally abused by their partner. The strangest part is that fur out of five girls who have been physically abused stay with that partner (Liz Claiborne, Inc, 2005). Abusive Relationship The problem with abusive relationships is that the abuser is not always being abusive, instead, most of the time the abuser is everything that you want him to be. Abusive relationships are often cyclic. Although 95% of the time your boyfriend may be perfect, acting abusive even five percent of the time is a problem. You can always seek guidance from an adult if you are unsure. They can be mental, emotional as well as physical Sexual Assault To prevent sexual assault, do not walk alone at night, do not talk to strangers, and always keep doors and windows locked. However, two out of three rapes are done by someone that the victim knows (RAINN, 2009). He can be a friend, family, or a partner.  

You may not always think of forced sex as rape, but if you are not willing to have sex it is wrong. It is unfair for you to blame yourself. One out of every six women have been the victim of a completed or attempted rape (RAINN, 2009). Sexual Orientation Sexual preference is determined by who they’re attracted to the majority of the time. This may not always be who they have had sex with in the past and who they will have sex with in the future. Sexuality is determined by your feelings rather than who you have sex with. When should you have sex? There is no set time that you should have sex by, it is important to realize this because you should not feel any pressure to have sex. You should have sex when you are emotionally and physically ready. Some may believe that you should not have sex until you are married, whatever your belief you should be able to live with the possible consequences of sex. Myth or Reality? You can/should have sex once you are in love or in a serious relationship It is wrong to think that when two people love each other very much, they must have sex. Sex is not just about being in love, many of you will fall in love way before you are ready to have sex. Sex is not a requirement in a serious relationship. What you should have before having sex? Partner
Mutual respect
Emotional and Physical Readiness
Be able to deal with possible consequences of sex, such as unplanned pregnancy and STD, and being prepared with contraceptives and condoms
Most importantly you need to have the internal desire STDS Myth If someone has been tested, s/he is safe to have sex with without a condom. This is not true because most STD tests only test for some of the diseases, additionally, the person may have had sex with someone else after taking the test. Bottom Line: tested does not mean you can have sex without a condom. Myth Using a condom does not mean you are safe from STDs. Although proper condom usage protects against most STDs, they sometimes break. Additionally, some diseases can still pass from partner to partner such as genital warts, herpes, and syphilis. How people get STDs? Females are more likely to get an STD than males because of the structure of the vagina compared to the penis. Myth: You cannot get an STD from oral sex. Herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HPV can all be spread through oral sex. Today, there are people who develop mouth and throat cancer from unprotected oral sex Myth: You do not need to use protection with anal sex. Many young women think that just because anal sex cannot lead to pregnancy there is no need to use condoms, this is wrong because anal sex is more risky than vaginal sex. HPV Fortunately there is a vaccine, Gardasil, for the majority of strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. There are over thirty strains of HPV and the virus causes cervical cancer and genital warts. HPV is very common, the majority of people will get it at one point in their lives. HPV spreads from contact of genital skin and skin around the genitals. You can be very responsible and still get the disease because condoms do not protect against HPV. Herpes Herpes stays in a person throughout his or her whole life. Herpes is also a very prevalent disease, one in four women have genital herpes and one in eight men. Herpes causes blistering outbreaks. Outbreaks can occur throughout a person’s life. There are two main strains, type I mostly grows on the mouth area and type II mostly grows on the genitals, however the two strains can inter-spread from oral sex. The main issue with herpes is that people without outbreaks can also spread the disease. However, people with outbreaks are a lot more contagious. Like HPV, condoms do not always protect against herpes. Fortunately there is a vaccine, Gardasil, for the majority of strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. There are over thirty strains of HPV and the virus causes cervical cancer and genital warts. HPV is very common, the majority of people will get it at one point in their lives. HPV spreads from contact of genital skin and skin around the genitals. You can be very responsible and still get the disease because condoms do not protect against HPV. HIV/AIDS
A person can contract HIV by having unprotected vaginal or anal sex, but condom usage greatly reduces this risk. Although a person can contract HIV from oral sex, it is unlikely. HIV attacks a human’s T-cells (necessary for immune system function) and leads to AIDS if left untreated. People with AIDS usually develop pneumonia or another infection that the body can no longer fight and die. Although there is still no cure for HIV/AIDS, it is very treatable today.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea: Chlamydia is caused by a bacteria. It is very curable with antibiotics if caught early, but if left untreated for a while can lead to reproductive issues and even infertility. Only half of women and men with the disease will show symptoms, thus it is important to test for this disease regularly if you are sexually active. Gonorrhea is also caused by a bacteria and people can get it in any orifice, the mouth, the anus, the genitals, and the throat. Gonorrhea is treatable with antibiotics, but if left untreated for a while can lead to reproductive issues in men and women. Both Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are preventable with the usage of condoms. Hepatitis B There is an immunization that can protect you from Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a potentially life-threatening disease affecting the liver. Protection Condoms are the only form of protection against both pregnancy and STD/STI

Other contraceptives protect against pregnancy CONDOMS Condoms are 99% effective at protecting pregnancy and STD/STI.
Always keep condoms in store
Store them correctly and check the date
How to use a condom:
Put it on before the action starts
Treat condoms with care and lubricate them properly
Be careful when opening condom wrapper not to rip condom and lubricate them with water based lubricants only (like KY) Syphilis is a relatively rare disease today and is very treatable. However, if left untreated can lead to health complications and even death. Syphilis Contraception Birth control is important for preventing against pregnancy and can be used in conjunction with condoms. Birth control does not prevent against STD/STI Teen mothers are at increased risk for: Children born to teen mothers are at increased risk for: The Pill Pro: regulate periods and clears up skin
Con: irregular bleeding, cramps, mood changes, and you have to remember to take it daily The patch Pro: only have to change it once a week, clears up skin

Con: visible, more likely to get nausea, breast tenderness, associated with increase risk of stroke Pro: once every three week has to be taken out
Con: many girls find it difficult to take out and insert, more discharge The Ring The Rod Pro: never have to worry about doing anything

Con: weight gain, mood changes, something is implanted in the arm Pro: once every three months, extremely effective

Con: Depression and weight gain The Shot Pro: Good for five to ten years

Con: irregular bleeding and have to have something inserted I/UD Emergency Contraceptive
If the condom breaks or the primary method of birth control fails, Plan B can be used to prevent pregnancy. However, it does not prevent against STI/STD. Use as quick as possible, only effective up to 72 hours after sex.
