This public service announcement was produced entirely by teens for teens by Community Healthcare Network's Teens P.A.C.T. program in New York City. It is just one in a series of public service announcements collectively titled, MORE THAN JUST SEX! MORE THAN JUST SEX aims to empower young people to make positive decisions, create social change, and reduce the rates of teen pregnancy, STD's, and HIV in New York City and beyond.
Did you know...
- About 1 in 3 women become pregnant at least once before they're 20.
- A sexually active teen who does not use birth control has a 90% chance of becoming pregnant within a year.
- Most birth control options are over 99% effective when taken correctly.
There are many safe and effective contraceptive options available to teens, yet some young people are unaware of how many choices they have when it comes to birth control. "Meet the Contraceptives" provides accurate information about the birth control options available to teens in a fun and original way. And remember, only CONDOMS protect against sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.
In New York City, adolescents can receive free and private reproductive healthcare without parental consent. To schedule an appointment at a Community Healthcare Network center in NYC near you, visit chnnyc.org.
