Being Abstinent


By choosing not to have sex, you are eliminating the risk of contracting an STD or becoming pregnant. A person may choose abstinence until marriage to avoid an unwanted pregnancy at a young age or with someone they are not in love with which can lead to emotional problems and low self esteem later on. A person who chooses to wait until they are married to have sex may do this to... prevent pregnancy (there are 750,000 teen pregnancies per year) prevent contraction of an STD ( 1 in 4 teens each year get an STD) prevent emotional strife later on ( low self-esteem and depression)
