repeat after me: If I know how I can get pregnant, I know how to NOT get pregnant. Pass this around to EVERYONE you know who is sexually active!
Remember, sperm can stay alive inside of you from 48-72 hours. And ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS remember those suckers can climb mountains, travel mine fields, swim upstream like a salmon on a fall run and jump tall buildings in a single bound because they live for one thing and one thing only: TO KNOCK YOU UP!!!!!
OK, sex ed 101--and this works on 28 day cycle--that means you get your period every 28 days.
Find the FIRST day of the start of your period.
Count ahead 14 days.
Count 4 days before the 14th day and 4 days after the 14th day. I am being cautious and erring on the side of more days for ovulation rather than less.
DRAW A BIG FAT BLACK LINE THRU THOSE DAYS--NO SEX.
DO NOT HAVE SEX DURING ANY OF THOSE DAYS--ESPECIALLY, UNPROTECTED SEX.
That is ABOUT the time you are ovulating.
The chances of you getting pregnant are very high during those days. It will also be the time you want sex the most because your body, biologically, WANTS to be pregnant.
That is how you get pregnant. Now, for how you DON'T get pregnant. If you don't know the specifics of getting pregnant, you can't know how not to get pregnant. I was 28 yo, married, 2 masters degrees and used a condom. Hahahah! Man plans, God laughs. Would you like to meet my son? Consider this, if it could happen to me...it could happen to you!
DO NOT EVER EVER EVER HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX! Pregnancy might be the least of your problems. HIV? Herpes? HPV can cause cervical loss and cancer. It CAN cause infertility and more ALL possible with unprotected sex. Think about the fear you have RIGHT NOW. Remember this fear the next time the discussion of unprotected sex arises.!
Say, "No glove, no love." If he gripes, pleads and moans--DO NOT LISTEN! He may be all lovey dovey right now but chances are he will run for the hills if you get pregnant. Promise me! PLEASE
MAYBE SOMEONE OUT THERE COULD PUT THIS UP AS A SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT DURING THE MOST HIGHLY WATCHED TEEN SHOWS!!
