Negative Pregnancy Test

Negative Pregnancy Test

When a woman thinks she could be pregnant, it’s a great relief to discover that her period has started. The crisis has passed and many promise to never “let it happen again.” This promise can be fulfilled in two ways – through abstinence or by contraceptive use. Abstinence is an option that thousands of young people are choosing today. Here are just some of the benefits of this commitment:

  • Abstinence is the only 100% effective guarantee that you won’t get pregnant.
  • You won’t get an STI.
  • You will be spared the heartache and pain that sex often brings to an unmarried person

Other women become more intent on using contraceptives to prevent future pregnancy and continue being sexually active. Few understand that many women still get pregnant even when using the pill or other means of birth control. Many times young women don’t even enjoy the sexual encounter but agree to it because they want to be “close” and “feel loved.”

The truth is that continued sexual activity outside of marriage has serious risks besides pregnancy. Sexually Transmitted Infections (or STIs) affect thousands of young people each year.
