My story is not really a story. It's
an ongoing dilemma within myself. I know I am a sexual being. I know sex isn't
bad and won't hurt me if I am responsible and understand that nature has dealt
us some disadvantages to sex.
I knew this long before I even thought about
having sex. I am 16, very young I still think, but still a growing woman all the
same. I know a lot will happen in my two years until 18. I respect that women
older than me have more experience. But, some of them don't remember, mostly family
members, of their curiosity.
I have had sex. I admit it. Once. I am scared
to get pregnant. We used protection. It was common sense.
though, would like something more efficient on my behalf. I want get on the pill.
I asked my mother
and she refused any such thing. As did my father. It is more of the fact that
I am their daughter and it is hard for them to understand. I am a patient being.
But, I also want to be safe. And, they refuse to see this now.
