Sex at a young age

I'm not trying to be rude or start anything, I'm just curious. I see a lot of moms on here got pregnant very young (like around 13-16). I don't know if I was sheltered or what, but I didn't have my first kiss until I was 15 and didn't lose my virginity until I was 21. But, I'm just curious, what made you start having sex at a young age? This question can even be answered for the mom's that didn't get pregnant young but still had sex young.

  • Peer pressure! I did it because everyone else was doing it. I got pregnant at 19 and I WAS engaged to my man.

  • I know what you mean, that does seem young. I lost my virginity right when I turned 17 and even that sounds young to me! I'm only now pregnant for the first time at 24. I will say, though...I commend these mothers for going through with pregnancies and having their babies.

  • I grew up so sheltered that sex was my rebellion. I wish I had waited, but nothing I can do now. If only I had realized my mother was just trying to protect me from the hurt I deliberately caused myself by becoming active so early.

  • I had suddenly moved in with a father I had never really known and it made my confidence go downhill. I let my boyfriend pressure me into having sex when I was 15, I knew i wasn't ready. We stayed together for 2 years after that.

  • pretty much like the other mom I kinda rebelled.. my dad had just left and moved to texas, a week later I lose my virginity, chopped all my long hair off and stared messing with drugs..well it was only weed but it was stupid and I have grown up at lot since then and I am now almost 20 and pregnant with my first and I am going to love my daughter but I kinda wish it would have happened later but she is meant to be here because when she was conceived I was on BCP and my bf was wearing a condom..
