In our quest to find the answers to our questions, the ‘just Google it’ approach often times makes it hard to tell the difference between what’s made up, fact and myth. Whether you’re teens looking for a teen perspective or adults trying to be that trusted and askable adult, the following online pregnancy and STD prevention resources are sure to have the answers you’re looking for.
PREP, along with its many local, regional and national partners, wants to help steer you in the direction of finding reputable and medically accurate answers to any and all questions a young person (and adults for that matter) may have regarding sex, sexuality and relationships. Navigating conversations around these topics is awkward and embarrassing enough for both teens and parents alike.
Use the websites below as a way to ease into fact finding together. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, to admit you don’t know the answer and revel in the opportunity to share a few laughs as you explore information.
With the advent of the World-Wide-Web, online pregnancy prevention resources and questionable information are not in short supply. Combine that with eight very different communities; each with their own service providers, values and resources, spread from Parachute to Aspen, and figuring out what resources or websites are medically accurate, age-appropriate and factual becomes a daunting task. Here you will find resources for parents, adults, educators and youth aimed at helping our county reduce teen pregnancy and STD rates.
