The reasons some young people don’t use contraception include: lack of knowledge, fear their parents will find out, belief that using contraception implies promiscuity, and belief that planning for sex ruins the spontaneity. Alcohol and other drug use also prevent good decision making and contraception use.

Providing young people with comprehensive contraception education can be part of a plan to help them be both safe and responsible when it comes to sexual relationships.
