Among women aged 16-49, the lowest levels of contraceptive use are found in the 16-19 year olds. Two thirds of heterosexual 16-19 year olds are ‘at risk’ of pregnancy
Condoms are cool! So why are so many sexually active young people not using them? For many, it is embarrassment, confidence and not having the skills to have a safe sex conversation! This workshop provides an open and honest introduction to safe sex and contraception. And includes everyone’s favourite classroom activity ‘the condom demo’.
The workshop uses the contraceptive display kit to teach young people about the contraceptive choices available. Young people will learn which methods of contraception protect against both unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and where to access further advice and information. The workshop explores the barriers which may prevent young people from accessing information about contraceptives, or attending sexual health services.
