    I need to be educated

    Hello! i am 17 years old and my boyfriend and I are thinking of having sex. Ive been on the pill for my acne since i was 13 , so I'm protected there. and he would wear a condom. I am more than ready to do this with him , however i go to a private christian school , so instead of telling us how to have safe sex , they just tell us to wait till marriage. So i have no clue if there is a possibility of pregnancy. I am going to wait until im educated to have sex with him , so should i take more precautions or are we protected enough ? How does Birth Control work ? Catholic school taught me nothing.

    If you are on the pill and haven't missed one, if you take it regularly every day, and your boyfriend uses a condom, you will be protected! I'm glad you are taking this seriously and not taking chances!

    Re: I need to be educated

    Hi there. I think its great that you are asking for help, but rather than taking advice from anonymous strangers who may or may not be right, I would suggest before you do anything that you go to a clinic for a checkup (Both of you should go) and to talk about sex and birth control.

    Not all pills are made for birthcontrol, some do not have enough ingredients to be fully able to protect you and are instead made to normalize your hormones/acne. You dont know that at the pill you are on is the one you should be on if you are sexually active.

    You really need to get educated by a health care specialist OR by your parents and a health care specialist before moving on and taking this huge step.

    the main reason i havent spoke to my parents about this is because they are teachers at the catholic school so if they found out i'd be kicked out. But i will be sure to talk to an adult who I trust. thank you for the reply!

    Re: I need to be educated

    There are health clinics you can go to without a parent....they can educate you on birth control, STDs, and give you a check up. If you are ready for sex, you need to have your first gyn exam...

    I can understand your hesitation to speak with your parents and appreciate that you are seeking advice...but please get advice from healthcare professionals who will take the time to not only answer your questions but make sure you (and he) are healthy...
