Did you know that approximately 750,000 teens become pregnant every year and most didn’t plan on becoming pregnant? Well in this essay i shall share a few methods on how to prevent teen pregnancy from occurring. These methods are Condoms,
Pregnancy Pills or in my opinion the bestest staying abstinence, Because i believe our body is a temple and we should take care of it and keep it sacred.
Condoms, the most common method that teens use. The Condom blocks semen from entering and causing pregnancy. But little do they know, if the condom is not used correctly it may accidentally break or slip and cause pregnancy. Another huge risk is in danger of catching an STD’s (sexual transmitted diseases). Which are infectious diseases that spread from person to person through intimate contact.
Another common known method a lot of teens use is the Birth control pill. The
Birth control pill is a daily pill that contains hormones to change the way the body works and prevent pregnancy. Hormones are chemical substances that control the functioning of the body's organs. In this case, the hormones in the Pill conIf trol the ovaries and the uterus. But as well as the Condoms these pills can also be risky, if the pills are skipped or forgotten, a girl is not protected against pregnancy and she will need a backup form of birth control, such as condoms. Or she will need to stop having sex for a while.
And this is why, i believe staying Abstinence is the best way to go! A person who decides to practice abstinence has decided not to have sex.You don't have to be a virgin to practice abstinence. Sometimes people who have been having sex decide not to continue having sex. Even if a person has been having sex, he or she can still choose abstinence to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the future.
I strongly believe these methods can help you prevent pregnancy, if these steps are chosen wisely and are done the correct way. I hope this

    “My life is over” Sally said with tears falling down her eyes. “I knew I should have went with my first thought” she said while shaking her leg rapidly. One of the worst things a parent of a teenage girl could hear is “I’m pregnant.” Birth control is one of the best things that is made. Giving access to birth control for teenage girls without parental permission will lower teen pregnancy rates, allow young girls have a great future, and can also have decreased stress levels.…

    Birth Control VS Condoms

    Birth control has come a long way. Since 1963, when it was approved by the FDA, women everywhere have been using it to prevent unwanted pregnancies, but are they really that effective? Birth control can be taken in many forms other than a pill, unlike condoms. It can in the form of a patch, an implant, a shot, or a vaginal ring. The pill and the vaginal ring are the most popular forms of birth control for women. The side effects of birth control include headaches, dizziness, and a decreased libido, which can be an inconvenience to both partners considering they use birth control to prevent pregnancy while having sex. The pill is 99% effective against pregnancy, and in no way does it protect against STDs. Birth control pills are usually only given with a prescription, but not all of them.…

I found this source by using Google as my search engine. The intended audience is the general public and people interested in learning about birth control pills. This source includes a timeline of the pill in America starting in 1956 with the invention of the Envoid, the first American birth control pill placed on the market. The timeline continues through following years touching on the growth and development of the pill in America as well as the controversy and conflict the pill has faced. This source also contains lots of useful information and images about the pill including events and people that effected and shaped the pill.…

    The greatest advantage of using the pill, when used properly, it is nearly 100% effective. Other advantages include: Doesn't interfere with sexual spontaneity (no interruptions such as with use of a condom). The pill may have some healthful side effects such as reduced risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, benign ovarian cysts, and fibrocystic breast growths. The pill also regularizes menstrual cycles and reduces menstrual cramping and other issues pertaining to menstruation. The combination pill reduces the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer even after its discontinued use (Gnagy et al., 2000; Hatcher, 2001; Narod et al., 1998). One other advantage that works in favor for Tina and Dan is that the use of the pill is not permanent; it may temporarily reduce fertility after discontinued use. Nine out of 10 women begin ovulating regularly within 3 months of suspending use (Reinesch, 1990).…

    Since their introduction in 1961, oestrogen-progestogen combined oral contraceptive (COC) pills have provided women with an effective and effortless means of contraception for 50 years [1]. Taken by 17% of all women of reproductive age, they are amongst the most widely prescribed drugs in the U.K. today[2]. Hitherto, earlier COC formulations have been associated with harmful dose-dependent side effects [3]. In time, however, a collective scientific effort has successfully improved the safety of COC’s by developing preparations that contain the minimum hormonal concentrations required to inhibit ovulation. Today COC’s contain 80-90% less oestrogen and progestogen than the earliest preparations and an in some types the newer, less androgenic, progestogens also [4]. In comparison to earlier COCs, the safety profile of current low-dose preparations is markedly superior[5].…

    From time to time, women face the difficult choice of either using birth control pills or resorting to other contraceptives. The choice and preference on the desired method varies among people depending on one’s health and advice from medical experts. While Planned Parenthood explains that the use of birth control pills has no negative influence on a woman’s health, certain sections of the society still hold the opinion of zero-tolerance to birth pills because of the complications associated with it. Although, there are demerits that arise with the use of pills, it has been helpful to women for many years.…
