It is important to know what you are doing when you make a decision to have sex. This needs to be a decision that both people are happy to take. There are many risks – it is not all about getting pregnant as some people think. We do have a very high teenage pregnancy rate in this country but also we have many more teenagers catching STD (sexually transmitted infections) You need to understand about how to protect yourself from getting infections and getting pregnant. Talk to a friend, relative, older sibling, aunty, nurse or doctor if you want to find out more. Never feel pressurised into sex.

Alcohol & Drugs
Dabbling in alcohol and drugs may seem harmless enough during your teenage years, but the truth is that both are seriously bad for your health. As a teen, your body is still growing and developing and introducing harmful materials can have long lasting consequences. No one is saying that one drink will necessarily kill you, but one drink, or puff, or hit, can lead to many more and that is when problems take hold.
