What if I get a girl pregnant?

If a girl you’ve had sex with gets pregnant, the law says that she gets to decide how to handle it—whether she decides on abortion, adoption or raising the child. That’s her legal right. While you have no legal say in her decision, you can certainly discuss the options with her and let her know your opinion.

Sometimes guys leave the protection and birth control concerns up to girls, and that’s not necessary. Birth control and safer sex are the responsibility of both partners. Of course, you can always choose not to have sex, which is the only way to be sure to prevent pregnancy.

If you decide to have sex, you and your partner should visit a local clinic, like Planned Parenthood, to learn about all of your contraceptive options. You should also wear a condom, even if your sexual partner is on birth control, to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
