Survey: A third of US teens don't realize HIV is an STD

Why we need sex education, and NOT the kind that stigmatizes STDs/STIs.

My Circumcision Story

I’m a 19 year old who had a circumcision today - I’m writing a diary blog to help anyone worried about having it done/want to have an informed decision on whether or not to go for it! Please check out my first post, I’ll be updating it daily. 

http://circumcisionstory.tumblr.com/  <— Here’s the link :) 

Based on the results from the survey I did asking y’all what forms of contraception and birth control you wanted to learn more about and what forms you feel like you know the most about, here’s the order that I’m going to be doing posts:

combination birth control
mini pill
EC
Implant 
hormonal IUD
copper iud
patch
Nuvaring 
the shot 
internal condoms 
external condoms 
spermicide 
Cervical cap 
Diaphragm 
sponge 
sterilization 
withdrawal 
abortion 
abstinence 
If you have any particular questions or comments about any of these forms let me know. If there’s anything I left out (especially if it’s a form not available in the U.S. that I may not know much about) let me know so I can do more research.

At some point while doing these posts I’m thinking I’m going to make some quizzes to go along with them to test everyone on what they know about each form. I’m interested in comparing it to the results of the survey question asking what form people felt like they new the most about to see how they relate. Also hopefully it’ll do some myth busting.

What Birth Control are you interested in?

Out of curiosity I wanted to see what type of Birth Control/Contraceptives people were most wanting to learn about. Let me know which ones you’re most interested in. No cheating and picking all of them, pick only your top 3 if you have more than one please.

There are only two questions, one is which one do you want to learn more about, the other is which one do you know about the best. This is to compare the two, help me figure out what order I want to do my birth control posts, and also I’m thinking of starting making sex education quizzes to test your knowledge and I’d like to compare what people think they know most about and what people actually know most about.

Ten Alternative Uses For Condoms

Ten Alternative Uses For Condoms

Believe it or not, we get calls from folks all the time looking to buy condoms for all kinds of reasons besides having safer sex. Here are some of our favorites.

Also for educational purposes! I think it would be really great if we had some sort of network for expired condoms to go to sex educators so that we could use them for displays, how-to lessons, and to help students to practice getting used to condoms without using up our supply of condoms that could be used to protect our students.

If you ever have expired condoms send them my way!

P.S. expired condoms also work really well to use with low quality toys. Because you don’t have to worry about pregnancy you can use them to cover those bad babies up and prevent infection.

Because I’m a frequent volunteer for Planned Parenthood my supervisor gave me a pack of cards produced by Guttmacher called “Are You in the Know?”. It has facts about Contraception, Pregnancy, Teens, and Abortion. 

Here are the facts on the cards, I removed all gendering language:

More than 208 million pregnancies occur annually worldwide; 185 million occur in the developing world alone. More than 40% of all pregnancies are unintended. 

Upon women surveyed, typically they want two children. This means that they’ll  spend about five years pregnant, postpartum, or trying to become pregnant, and roughly three decades trying to avoid pregnancy.

Premarital sex is very common and has been for decades. Even among U.S. citizens born in the 1940s, nearly nine in 10 had sex before marriage. Currently, 95% of Americans have had premarital sex by age 44.

On average, Americans have sex for the first time at age 17

Comprehensive sex ed, which includes information on both contraception and abstinence, often results in delayed sexual activity, lower frequency of sex and fewer sexual partners. It can also increase contraceptive use and reduce risky sexual behaviors. Receiving comprehensive sex ed does not lead teens to have sex earlier.

Worldwide, half of all teen births each year occur in just seven countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria and the United States.

Among unmarried sexually active teens who want to avoid pregnancy, almost seven out of teen in South Central and Southeast Asia and in Sub-Saharan Africa, and almost half in Latin America and the Caribbean, do not use modern contraceptive methods. They do not have sufficient access to contraceptives.

There are about 70 pregnancies for every 1,000 teens able to get pregnant. However, when only considering those teens who have ever had sex, the pregnancy rate is much higher, about 150 per 1,000

78% of teens Designated Female at Birth and 85% of teens Designated Male at Birth practiced contraception their first time. The external condom is the most commonly used method at first sex.

Those with family incomes below the federal poverty level (about 18,500 for a family of three) account for more than 40% of all abortions.

More than half of those obtaining abortions are in their 20s.

Complications from unsafe abortion account for 13% of maternal deaths worldwide, a total of 47,000 deaths each year. About five million are hospitalized each year for treatment of abortion-related complications. In developing regions, where abortion is largely illegal, more than half of all abortions are unsafe.

About 30% of those able to get pregnant will have an abortion by age 45; 25% will have an abortion by age 30; and 8% by age 20.

More than 40 million abortions are performed worldwide each yearl More than 85% of all abortions occur in developing countries

More than 17 million aged 13-44 are considered to be in need because they are at risk for unintended pregnancy and have an income below 250% of the federal poverty level, or because they are younger than 20.

Emergency contraception is a way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It consists of a concentrated dosage of one or more of the same hormones found in birth control pills, and has no effect on an established pregnancy. It can be effective for up to 3-5 days after sex, depending on the product.

When used correctly, modern methods of birth control are highly effective. The two thirds of U.S. women at risk for unintended pregnancy who use contraceptives consistently and correctly account for only 5% of all unintended pregnancy.

Virtually all those Americans who may become pregnant aged 15-44 who have ever had sex have used at least one contraceptive method (99%). Only 7% of sexually active women who want to avoid pregnancy are currently not using a method.

About 6.7 million U.S. pregnancies occur each year, and nearly half (49%) are unintended

Three quarters of those in developing countries who want to avoid pregnancy use modern contraceptive methods, but the remaining one-fourth do not. If all those who wanted to avoid pregnancy used modern methods, unintended pregnancy in developing regions would decline by almost three-fourths.
