*Disclaimer: The best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to not have sex (duh). Whether you choose to have sex or not, it's important to know the facts, so we've provided a list of different resources so that you can inform your own decisions.

Waiting

Not having sex is the only 100% effective way to prevent teen pregnancy and STIs. There are a lot of reasons people decide to wait. Check out these resources to find more information on waiting for girls and for guys.

There are a ton of different ways to stay protected, so make sure to find the one that works best for you. Check out these resources to find out more on protecting yourself and your partner.

Know Your Rights

All states have different laws in terms of receiving sexual health services. For example, all 50 states allow minors to consent to STI services without parental permission. Check out this resource from the Guttmacher Institute to see what rights you have in your state.
