Teen sex is an integral part of adulthood, which our children are confidently entering.. Most often they are driven by love, sexual desire and curiosity.
Over the past 30 years, the age of female sexual debut has decreased from 19 to 15 years, and the number of sexual partners has increased on average 3.5 times.
And although from a purely medical point of view, sex life does not harm the health of a physiologically mature 16-year-old girl, the task of parents is to explain that teenage sex can be not only pleasure, but alsosource of problems.

An early sexual start, fueled by natural interest, social pressure “everything is already yes, but I am not yet” and a light state of intoxication does not always bring joy to modern Juliet.
Having decided that she is already adult and she definitely needs to do “it” as soon as possible, after sex the girl can feel fear, depression, disappointment, shame,experiencing sexual problems in the future.
The reasons for such sensations are simple and clear: lack of sexual experience (often with both partners), lack of knowledge of techniques and postures, lack of self-confidence, partner, fear that nothing will work, etc.
Another reason for negative experiences is the difference in male and female attitudes towards sex.
So 62% of 15-16 year old girls who live sexually save it only for the sake of a partner. They plan that in the future their relationship will go into the category of lengthy and formal ones - wedding, family, children.
At the same time, 89% of young men perceive teenage sex as a pleasant and self-evident bonus of having a girlfriend, without thinking at all about creating a family and having children. There is something to think about.

Innocent teen sex without a condom can “give” much more than just a disappointment in the process or a partner.
AIDS, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydial infections, herpes virus, papillomas, hepatitis B are just a short list of what unprotected intimate relationships can turn into.
According to statistics, 74% of girls enterfirst sexual contactwithout the use of contraceptives. Continuing sex life, only 34% insist that a partneralways used a condomduring sex. As a result, a sexually transmitted disease and (or) unwanted pregnancy can occur literally after the “first time”.
Signs of a venereal disease can be discharge, itching, burning, spots, rashes, ulcers on the skin in the genital area; pain during urination or intercourse, swollen lymph nodes.
3 tasks for girl's parents:
Often the parents of girls, having learned that the daughter is already living sexually, sigh tragically and predict that she is about to “bring in the hem”.
The construct in this application is “0”, and it is important to convey information to the teenager, in which cases she may become pregnant and how this will change her life.
Since teenagers are often held captive by various myths told by peers, any girl should know thatpregnancy may occur even if:
According to the WHO, pregnancy, its interruption and childbirth in adolescence is one of the main causes of maternal and infant mortality in the world.In women under the age of 16 years, the probability of giving birth to a dead child and death during childbirth is 1.5 times higher than that of women aged 20-29.
Perhaps this fact should seriously think of all the girls and their parents.
