Sex and You...

So you think you and your boy/girlfriend are ready to take the plunge and begin a sexual relationship?

Youíve read all the all of our pregnancy articles and still think that sex is the only thing you can do to develop your relationship?

Have you sat down together and discussed the subject?

If not then I think it would be wise before you carry on reading!

If you donít feel confident enough to talk about sex with the other person then just think what the hell it would be like doing it with that person. Highly embarrassing I should think!

When you think you have completed all of these tasks (yes, I know it sounds like a list of chores but this is highly important!) donít get too excited because believe it or not there is yet much, much more to consider!

Contraception-

This of course being the most important subject, as, if used properly, it will protect you from unplanned pregnancies and nasty Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's). Also, in case any of that fails, we've had a look at the facts behind the Morning After Pill.

So read the following and be clued up:

Pressures on Having Sex-

Bearing all this in mind you may think that you're not ready for sex and you want to wait a while, but somehow you feel presured into it by someone or something. Well if that's the case then don't despair because we've taken a look at the pressures surrounding sex. It's quite ordinary to feel pressured by your partner, friends or the media but at the end of the day it's always better to listen to yourself and do what you feel happy with.

Take a Look at:



Getting Help:

If your contraception fails and you think you might be pregnant or may have caught an infection then you'll need a someone to talk to. We can't tell you what's best to do or who's best to talk to you. However we did talk to a local GP and it was really reassuring that if something happened a Doctor would be really good person to see. Alternatively we've got a guide to helplines and how to use them, as they are really great when you're in a dilemma.

Pregnancy and Alternatives

Britain now has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy so we've taken a look at possible ways of reducing this and also had our say about teeenage parenthood. Also we've looked at the 'for's and against's' of abortion as a possible alternative to having the baby.
