The questions are the following:
How old were you when you got pregnant?
Are you still in a relationship with the other parent?
How did you feel when you first found out you were pregnant?
What was the biggest surprise or difficulty you faced after having the baby?
Did you finish high school or are you on track to graduate?
Do you feel that the sex education you received at school was sufficient?
What were your friend's and family's reaction?
Did you care about being a part of a stereotype, or felt people where looking down on you?
Did you think about the consequences before having sex?
What is one piece of advice, you would give to a teenager currently engaging in sexual activity?
-I was 19.
-Yes,we were engaged at the time and I married him, however we are not parents because we made the responsible decision to abort it.
-I was fucking pissed. Beyond pissed really.
-I didn't have it, so nothing.
-It all happened after highschool, so N/A.
-No, I do not feel that the current sex education is adequate, but lack of knowledge had no bearing on my pregnancy. I got pregnant while using birth control and condoms.
-My parents don't know, but my husband, best friend and my cousin whom do know were completely supportive of my decision and very understanding.
-As most people irl have no idea, They couldn't look down on me, but yes. I was very ashamed of becoming one of those
girls despite taking all reasonable precautions against it.
- Of course I thought of the consequences. If I didn't, I wouldn't have been using multiple forms of birth control.
-Don't have sex if;
- You cannot support the kid financially BY YOURSELF. Relying on your family to raise your mistake is selfish, foolish and fucking disgusting. You were adult enough to decide to keep it, now it's your problem.
- You have no plan or no idea of what you will do should you become pregnant.
- You're still in school
- You are still living at home
- You cannot offer a child an emotionally stable home.
- You think you can't get pregnant just because you use birth control
- Every time you have sex you freak out worrying that you might be pregnant, Etc.
