- Sexually Transmitted Diseases and AIDS
– Having sex, even protected sex with a condom can
still put you at risk for getting a sexually transmitted
disease. The only 100% sure way not to get one of these
diseases is to practice abstinence and stay away from using
drugs. Remember some of these diseases are incurable and
some will result in death. It’s just not worth it!

not make someone love you or stay with you. Many times teens
are used by other teens and the results are hurt feelings

only complicates the relationship. Enjoy being with your
boyfriend or girlfriend and get to know who they are. Avoid
compromising situations where you will be tempted to do
things that you will regret later. Save sex for that special
someone on your wedding day. You will be glad you did!
