Sex should be consensual, fun and enjoyable but it’s a good idea to plan ahead and decide on a method of contraception that’s right for you and your lifestyle.
Not all young people are having sex, the average age for a young person in the UK to have sex for the first time is 16/17 but remember the decision to have sex is yours.
Most methods of contraception are for females; however contraception should be the responsibility of both partners.
Communication plays an important role in sex and relationships.
Contraception is important in preventing unplanned pregnancy/parenthood but it is also important to protect yourself from STI’s (sexually transmitted infections).
