TEEN PREGNANCY Myths Clarifications You can't get
your first time You can't get
pregnant while
you're on your
period. If a guy drinks
moutain dew he
could lower his
sperm count low
enough to not get
a girl pregnant. Educating kids about
sex makes them
experiment more. You can get pregnant any time you have sex whether it is the first time or hundreth. Sperm stays in your body
for up to 7 days after sex
making it possible for you to get pregnant even while on your period. While moutain dew may have an effect on a man's sperm count, it has no effect on whether you will get pregnant or not. Educating kids about sex

their participation in risky behavior. How Do We

students about healthy
relationships as

information to make
the best decision for
their beliefs. Educational Resources Before you become sexually active, it's good to have a resource that will teach you the risks that come from it and precatutions that should be taken beforehand.
