Got Questions about Sex?
Q. Could I be pregnant?
A. First of all, why do you think you might be pregnant? Did the condom break or slip off? Is your period late? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then why sit and worry? Put your mind at ease by contacting us for a free pregnancy test and confidential appointment.
Q. What are the chances I have an STD?
A. If you have been sexually active, here’s what you need to know: There are about 9 million young people who are diagnosed with a new STD every year and an estimated 50% of sexually active youth get an STD by age 25. Even if you’ve used a condom, click on the STD Wizard to see what you may have been exposed to.
Q. What’s the “safest” way to have sex?
A. Some people think that if they use more than one method of contraception they are 100% protected from the possibility of pregnancy and contracting an STD. Unfortunately, even with these methods, there are still failure rates. The 100% guarantee against pregnancy and STDs is sexual abstinence.
Q. It’s just sex, what is the big deal?
A. There is actually more going on than what you think. And this has to do with your biggest, most powerful sex organ. Find out what it is on our Sexuality Page.
Q. How far is too far?
A. Have you ever heard the saying, “If you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned”? The same approach applies to pushing the limits with sex. The further you walk down the path of hugging, kissing, laying together, making out (all of this is called sexual progression) the closer you get to sex. One rule of thumb is to avoid pushing things too far by setting boundaries. For example, don’t do anything with your partner that you wouldn’t want your mom, dad, or teacher to see! Also, talk to your date. Let him or her know right up front and VERY clearly what your boundaries are.
