Already Had Sex?
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy conducted a survey of teens who had sex, and the majority of those teens said they wished that they would have waited to have sex. You may feel the same way. Even though you have had sex, it doesn’t mean you have to continue having sex. Make a decision to cease from sexual activity from this day forward, and have your friends keep you accountable. It’s never too late to start the rest of your life today.
Were You Abused?
You have to realize that you’re not alone. Unfortunately the numbers of young people who have been sexually abused in the U.S. are astounding. The second step is to realize that it wasn’t your fault. Often, victims of sexual abuse believe that they have done something to cause the abuse. It’s simply not true.
Next, tell a trusted adult about your experience. If you have been abused (or are being abused) talk with someone you trust and someone who can guide you to the right people.
Although there is a tremendous amount of pain and regret associated for teens who have been abused, it’s never too late to start over. Commit today to controlling your sexual future to give you the best chance for a much brighter future.
It’s Your Life. It’s Your Call.
