How much does you teenager know about sex?

If you asked them would they know the answers to these questions? I kow when i was out of High School I STILL didn't know some of this stuff.

1) can sperm live inside the woman's body for a few days or more after unprotected sex?
2)At what week in the cycle does ovulation occur? Pregnancy?
3)Can you get pregnant from having un-protected sex one time?
4)Can you get pregnant if you miss one birth control pill?
5)Can you name 4 types of birth control?

  • Hahahaha...Mine knows all this and more.

    He just informed another teen that yes, she could in fact get pregnant even if she hasn't started her period. And no you do not have to be on you cycle to get pregnant. He knows as much or more than I do.

  • I do not have teens, but my 6 year old is in love with girls between the ages of 18 & 25, so I am really worried.
