in health class we just started our sex unit a few days ago. today, i am proud to say, we started to cover birth control. so far i think that my teacher has done a wonderful job at explaining it. we are covering different forms of b/c from least effective to most effective. she has really explained why withdral and 'safe times' dont work at all and are not something that should be used to rely on. for each of they different types of bc she even had them, she showed us how to use a condom as well.

i am proud that they are teaching this in my distric and it will even be on our final exam as well.

You are so lucky. My sex ed class last year was basically, "You should all know by now (9th grade) that having sex is the most despicable thing you can do if you're unmarried. Don't do it. You'll get AIDS and die."

This can only help the self esteem of students who have already had sex, especially the ones who had sex because of low self esteem in the first place.

They never mentioned stuff like birth control, how unsafe the "pull out" method is, or that you can get STDS from unprotected oral sex. I know a couple people who would have liked to know that before they did it.
