Hey susanc! I actually just got all of my shots done last month and I'm fine! I had been having sex with my boyfriend and just to be safe I got the shots. I don't believe what they are saying about teaching just not having sex is wrong because if they don't listen and DO end up having sex what will they have learned? And teaching about not having sex makes it sound like it is scary or bad or taboo even. I do believe that people should whit untill they are ready but if you have never even been educated on safe sex many things could go wrong. You don't know everyone who your partner has been with and who their partners have been with and so on. Its not safe to assume things like that and being uneducated about preventing diseases and pregnancy does not help anyone. The best thing you can do is to talk to them about sex and when you think is the proper age. I'm 16 actually and I wish my parents had talked to me about it... And yes my first fear is pregnancy but I take the pill but that dosn't mean I don't worry at times. I do but at least I know I'm protected.
