I just watched 16 and pregnant. I was sexually active young, but I was on BC. Those of you who got pregnant in your teens, how did it happen? Were you uneducated on BC? You can't all say your BC failed, not everyone is the 1% and I'm very curious.

Why? I only ask because the ONLY thing my mom ever did right was take me to planned parenthood. Did anyone talk to you?

I was 19 when I got pregnant, but engaged first & we wanted to so we stopped using bc.

I had my first at 19 because we decided the condom was restricting our pleasure. Yes, stupid, I know.

I used birth control both times.
The first time, I screwed up. I didn't take it like it is suppossed to be taken.
The second time, it was the birth controls fault. But had we used a condom as well it probably wouldn't have happened.

I am like you.  In fact, I was the girl that drove all my friends an hour away to get on their own birth control, lol.

Because I was ignorant as to how my BC worked. I did not realize it could be affected by antibiotics.

I just simply was not on birthcontrol.
I know how it works it didn't fail I guess I just didn't prevent it. I got pregnant when I was 15 had my son at 16 now I'm 17 and doing very well.
