This is why we need better sex education not just "abstinence only"
It's actually possible to be WORSE than abstinence only. I discovered this. A free period/ovulation tracker has taught me more about my period than the sex ed class ever did. Example "you ovulate a few days before your period, don't have sex then and you WON'T get pregnant"
Oh I know. But I'm dead serious, the teacher said as long as you didn't have sex the few days before your period (what they claimed was ovulation) you would have no chance of getting pregnant. ._. And then I get the tracker app only to discover it's actually midway through your cycle, and that ovulation is just when you have the HIGHEST CHANCE of getting pregnant, not the only time it can happen. The also said your period only came a certain week every month. *sighs* They sucked. So badly. The also said the only "symptoms" of PMS were cramps. :|
Just let him think that, it'll probably keep him abstinent or at least encourage him to use a condom.
