Teen Pregnancy and Information on Prevention

May has been designated by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services as a month to raise awareness on teen pregnancy. Teen pregnancy often results from unplanned pregnancy. According to various studies, teen pregnancies often carry higher health risks. Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month isn’t all about abstinence but about ways from teens to protect themselves from STDs, STIs and unplanned pregnancies.

Seventeen Magazine has a post in honor of the month as well. It lists several links for resources and on topics surrounding pregnancy. Stayteen.org is another great resource for teens who want more information about sex and pregnancy. Stayteen.org serves as an information hub to help teens make more informed decisions surrounding sex, contraceptives, and pregnancy.
