Share Your Story: How Did You First Learn About the Birds and the Bees?

Youth with condoms

How did you first learn about sex or contraception? Chances are, your story is unique.

Pathfinder International's Writer Maren Vespia shared, "When I was seven, I was terrified I was pregnant. I was in no way sexually active, but I did kiss a neighbor a lot and was, simultaneously, getting chubby. Look, I cried a lot. Then I did the only thing I could think of—corner my mom in her bathroom and confess. As soon as I blurted the word 'pregnant,' my mom flashed a smile. Then she gave me a long hug and the lesson began. Eleven years later, on a weekend home from college, I sought out my mom again. I asked her if we could take a drive. I had some questions about contraception."

Pathfinder is collecting inspirational and funny stories like Maren's about young people's first encounter with the idea of sex and birth control.

Share your story in the comments section for a chance to have it featured on Pathfinder's World Contraception Day blog.

Rest assured that Pathfinder will not share your name or contact information in association with the story—unless you want us to!
