Is it any wonder that some people don't really understand sex and pregnancy when there are myths like these?

I wish people who are anti-abortion would read these!
From the first link:
Quote:
It found 85% of GPs thought young people were not using effective contraception because they were too embarrassed to ask for advice.

But 70% believed ignorance was the problem, and 70% believed teenagers were worried their confidentiality would not be respected.[/b]
It's not that people want to advocate abortion, it's that we have young teens were are ignorant themselves, having babies.. It is any wonder we have so many social issues?

From the second link:
Quote:
The Pill is always effective immediately after you begin taking it.[/b]
I've heard almost every one of those myths but the above is the most troubling because people think this is an excuse. It's so sad.

IT scares me that someone who thinks that wrapping a wristwatch around their you-know will prevent pregnancy could be responsible for raising a child. All the more reason we need better contraceptive education...

I mean, seriously people need to think. If it is that easy to prevent a pregnancy, why would there ever be an unwanted pregnancy? Golly.

It's funny b/c that second link, which was supposed to be truth, had a couple of untruths in there as well

"Pulling out before the man ejaculates, known as withdrawal, is not a foolproof method for contraception. Some ejaculate (fluid that contains sperm) may be released before the man actually begins to climax."

That is not exactly true. Many studies on this have been done, and there is no viable sperm in pre-ejaculate - pre-ejac. is mucus for the most part. There might be sperm in pre-ejac. if the man has had sex recently, and there's sperm left over from his last orgasm somewhere in his urethra, but urinating before sex gets rid of that. So, like I said, they're not lying, but it's not the complete truth.

"While a woman's cycle is more or less regular at most times, this balance of hormones can be disrupted by various factors, including age, stress, medications, etc. Therefore, pinpointing the time of ovulation and predicting any "safe" days can be difficult. Couples who have success with the rhythm method of contraception must carefully monitor the women's menstrual cycles and evaluate symptoms of ovulation, as well as any external factors. "

When done correctly, charting is about 80-90% accurate, which is not exactly the picture they portray here.

Actually when done correctly, charting, and observing signs of ovulation (FAM) is about 99% affective.

Others believed a Coca-Cola douche

I just took it as you have to monitor things carefully for FAM to work, which I would say it true. I think some women, including some I have known, think that everyone ovulates on day 14 and don't pay attention to their body and the signs it produces.

Sadly this myth was popular enough for mythbuster to test.

The Coca Cola douche was actually recommended in the early editions of "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask"!! I'm almost positive that the Saran Wrap Condom trick was, too.

Now why anyone would attempt to douche with Coke is a completely different topic.

Im a teen, got pregnant as a teen, and have NEVER heard any of those things!! They are rediculous! I wonder why people think only teens believe that? Yes, most teens are probably niave but believing putting a watch around the penis will prevent pregnancy makes you beyond niave!!!!!!
