Safe is Sexy
Teenagers who are sexually active in their relationships should do all they can to stay healthy This means going for frequent check-ups at the doctors office and getting the test that you need in order to stay healthy. Also, using different contraceptives methods are the best way to stay healthy. Condoms and birth control pills are great tools to easily prevent diseases from happening.
Now we all know what could happen if we were to have unprotected sex with our partners, and they are unexpected pregnancies or catching and STD or HIV. Though there is nothing wrong with bringing a child into the world, I doubt that it is in your plans to have a child while you are still young and in high school. Especially since at this time you should be thinking about keeping your grades up for college and to strive for the career you’re interested in.
I have made it my mission to always remind everyone to get tested since I’ve been affected by a loss of someone who I loved and was very closed to. My sister died in 2002 from an HIV infection, when my sister passed she was 22 years old at the time and she didn’t know much about HIV or AIDS. At the time there weren’t many options for patients like there are now. There is medicine out now that can prevent the disease from killing your immune system.
That is why it is so important to go check yourself if you are sexually active in your relationship. Remember staying healthy is way sexier!
