Share your sad stories on teenage sex and pregnancy on my page.

this guy is bad news sending pics of you naked is illegal and not a smart thing they could end up all over the school. plus hes older than you by alot so he could be used to other girls "doing it" with him. i would stay as far away from him as i could chica.

i'm going to wait until after i get married to get pregnant

avrilgirl8888, I am not sure what I would do if I saw pictures of my brother naked like you did and not just one but a bunch of them. That is so wrong but I know some couples share pictures like that when they are dating, but that is still doesnt make it right. I just read this survey and they said about 35% of teens do that sort of thing and send naked pictures of themselves, so you could look at it like your brother is just one of those people.
And I have seen pictures of guys I know at my school naked and doing things because they sent them to their gfs or friends and it is just weird to see that. Especially when you see them after seeing them naked, its just plain weird. People should have more sense to not do that or send them to other people.

I hate how guys will "do" girls and not care because it's likely nobody will find out they're the dad. having a baby is b/c your in love and you can make this commitment fully and know you'll love your child to the ends of the earth. I would wait till I'm married. I know i will be tempted b/c everyone is, but i'll be strong yeah yaya!

My aunt works at a school, an eighth grade girl and a seventh grade boy "did it" and now the eighth grade girl is pregnant! I couldn't believe it that is so sick!!!! Seriously and now the boy doesn't want anything to do with her!!!

all the kids at my school are like i hooked up 4 times in one week she was "hecka" hot and good/excperienced and she is like way older than us and 99.9% of the time it is unprotected sex that they think are wearing the condom right but as usual NO they are not but still think about this over $230.00 a week are spent on babies try paying for that b4 u can get a job and the guy NEVER ever helps!!!!!!
by myohmy101 on 2/23/2010 8:02:09 PM
seriously people. unless you want to be the next teen mom star just don't do it.
by kgirlpanda on 2/17/2010 4:19:29 PM
Sex is something that is unnecessary at our age. In my opinion, teenage pregnancy is only ok when you are married in your teens (like age 17, 18, or 19) and got pregnant during your marriage. Believe it or not, some people today were married at age 17 and had a child shortly thereafter. If you can handle it, go for it. Remember that some things aren't forever, and that it's best to wait.
by pointeprincess on 2/17/2010 4:10:19 PM
Thats sad! people should watch the Secret Life of an american Teenager,, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Moms. My health teacher once said and this is true she said " your body is a sacred temple, you must love and protect it because you are stuck woth it for a long time and you only have one life". SO True! people who get pregnant or think about sex at that age are insane. 35% of teen moms finish school the other 65% of teen moms don't. Think about how your life would change. A baby is a huge responsibility. A baby outlives you! if you wait for the right guy at the right age you will be SO happy you did! Did you know 50% teen moms are in debt 5 years after having the kid
by puppylover111 on 2/17/2010 1:04:18 PM
I want to help these people who get pregnant as teens but I dont feel much sympathy you should know not to have sex until ur older and if you do with or without protection its your own fault if you get pregnant
by emandemf on 2/16/2010 10:23:01 PM
i know i used to want to have sex but then i realized it is stupid and i should wait until i am married and that little time of having sex could ruin and change your life forever so jusy comment on my page!!!!!!!!

I saw part of the Pregnancy Pact. Those girls were so bold and wanted to get pregnant so bad. I was reading online about a girl who was 13 and couldnt tell who the father was because she was having sex with 4 different guys. I think that was just crazy. I think sex is great and is meant to happen in a relationship with one person not 4 different guys. It must be that people get confused because sex feels so good and they dont realize how important the emotional side of sex is.
by luckykel on 2/12/2010 5:38:19 PM
omg this is so sad. why do people do this? it's just so crazy...
by bubblybecca on 2/10/2010 8:41:50 PM
I don't know why so many girls that are our age are so pressured to have sex. Its crazy! Its crazy that ssssoooo many young girls are getting pregnant. Have you ever seen the pregnancy pact? Where all those girls get pregnant that was based on a true story! It was all over the news. I think you should wait atleast until you are an adult with agood job. Babies cost alot of money. Is it even worth that ten minutes. Is it?

Just watch Teen Mom! All those girls have gone through a ton and people really don't realize how hard it is. It helps if you have someone like Tyler. He is adorablee.

Yep, my bff had sex. then he dumped her. saddest thing i ever saw. =[
by mizlizbiz on 2/3/2010 9:00:55 PM
Thinking about and wanting to have sex is normal because thats what happens when we go through puberty but there are so many great reasons to wait. Like not getting pregnant or a std.
I guess what I am scared about is that some of my friends who I never thought would start having sex when they did now seem addicted to doing it and I just couldnt deal with that now. I mean we didnt make a pact to stay virgins but I thought we all would have started much later.
by luckykel on 2/2/2010 11:01:09 PM
I watch the serCet lifE of he american teen ager and have seen what can happen if you have sex and after seeing all amy went through i am not having sex until im married and if my bf cant understand that then they arent the one for me!!! WORD UP
by hmmc296 on 2/2/2010 9:49:14 PM
i believe it's ok to think about having sex but u should wait,i mean i want to,but then i don't bc my emotions change all the time.make sure ur first time is perfect and with the right person.(who u love)
by boysloveme on 2/2/2010 9:41:27 PM
its sad how many girls do this just dont have sex that is how you prevent it
by emandemf on 2/2/2010 5:42:00 PM
by emandemf on 2/2/2010 5:41:27 PM
Why do girls have to suffer from unprotected sex. The worst thing that can happen to a guy is an STD. They can easily hide that from friends. But girls can get pregnant also. Its not like you can go around with a pregnant belly and not expect ppl to notice. I know babies are a gift from God but for most guys, if girls get pregnant and the guys are the father, a lot of the guys will leave the girl. It doesn't seem fair to me.

i am staying away from it for along time. i am not ready for this yet.
by 4Bear24 on 1/24/2010 9:06:54 PM
Those are all really great sites. You could spend all day just learning and understanding teen pregnancy and how to prevent it. At my school I am amazed by the people who have gotten pregnant and even more surprised by how many of my friends have had pregnancy scares. But when you see the facts about teen pregnancy you kind of realize why so many people are getting pregnant.
30% or all 9th graders are having sex
40% of all 10th graders are having sex
And then when you see how many of them arent using protection like the pill and the condom you see why it is happening to many of the people we know.
