When you use abstinence for preventing
pregnancy: Know what you want and how you feel before things get sexual. Remember why you chose abstinence. Think about your reasons and why they are important to you. How you feel and what you believe matter. Think ahead. Try to avoid getting into situations where staying abstinent could be hard. Don't abuse alcohol or drugs. Alcohol and drugs can affect your decisions. They can make you let down your guard and forget why you decided to be abstinent. Get support from someone you trust. It really helps. Share your decision, and talk about any challenges you're having staying abstinent.
Your local Planned
Parenthood clinic or women's health center may have a teen support group where you can talk with other teens about abstinence.
