Of course I'm talking about pregnancy. How do you prevent pregnancy? Are you unlucky in BC? Has it ever failed miserably for you? Are you pro-BC for your teenagers?
I have gotten pregnant on every form of BC I've taken. Either I'm allergic to it, or it doesn't work. I finally started using the pray method (you know, have sex then pray you don't get knocked up) and that worked for a good 8mnths. After my 4th child was born, I was able to get my tubes tied, seeing as I had just turned 23yrs old and am high risk. I was so happy!!!! Until my tubal ligation failed me miserably and I found myself pregnant again.
As for my kids, BC will be readily available in my home. We are teaching them abstinence, but we also tell them that if they make the choice to have sex, they NEED to be mature enough to protect themselves. I was a teenage mom, and I do not want to be a 30yr old grandma.
