Sexuality, Birth Control and Pregnancy

If you’re feeling pressured to have sex, you may need to have a look at your relationship. It’s your body and you have the ability to choose what to do with it. Not having sex doesn’t mean you don’t care for your partner, and it is okay to say “no”, even if you’ve said “yes” before. Sex isn’t for everyone at every time, so don’t let others make your decision.

You can get the facts abut sex and birth control at the places listed here. If you think you or a friend might be pregnant, remember that it will not go away if you ignore it. It is very important to get a pregnancy test as soon as possible (this can be confidential). Very soon, you could be faced with difficult decisions that will affect your entire life. You should talk to an adult you trust, whether it’s a parent, teacher, counsellor, or someone at a sexual health clinic for help – support is up to you.
