My old question edited

Originally posted by plainmaryjane311:
For a moment I wondered why you would ask such questions, it was almost disturbing.

First of all I'm sorry if I offended anyone by my question. I didn't mean to be disturbing, I just wanted to know and I knew it would be rude and an invasion of privacy to ask a girl who was pregnant at school some of those questions. So I posted the question so anyone who was willing could answer.
I don't think I put enough emphasis on the REAL question I was wondering about. I mostly just wanted to know that if it wasn't planned (which I'm surprised to find out a lot of teens plan pregnancy) then how? What kind of accident was it? Was it just carelessness or did you try your hardest, and use condoms and other birth control methods and they failed? Did you use them and KNOW you used them incorrectly? Thank you for your help and sorry again if this offends anyone.

Hopeless: please keep addresses to a given topic IN that topic, okay?

I think Milke addressed that users issues pretty clearly in that topic, and it's FINE for you to be asking those questions.

But I'm going to close this oen to save space. You're welcome to copy the text from it into your original topic.

(FYI: I don't know that data bears up to show a lot of teens "plan" pregnancy. However what we do know is that for many, it isn't a complete accidenent or surpise; most teens not using birth control are fully or at least partially aware they may become pregnant. There's a lot of room between planned and unplanned pregnancies, and that's actually where many pregnancies in all ages fall.)
