Other Birth Control Options for Teens
Many people become sexually active in high school, when it's important to protect against unwanted pregnancy. For this reason, I think teens need to be knowledgeable regarding what kinds of birth control are out there. Many teens are only aware of birth control pills and condoms as forms of birth control, but there are many other methods that teens may actually prefer. For instance, teens are likely to want birth control for a long period of time, and they are more likely to forget to take a pill at the same time every day. Therefore, an IUD that lasts 12 years, and can be removed when a woman decides she wants to become pregnant, is more reliable and convenient for a teen to use than a daily pill. This article details some of the most convenient and reliable forms of birth control for teens.
