The pediatric-adolescent gynecologists at UT Southwestern encourage all parents to talk to your teen about abstinence and contraception. Many teens become sexually active during high school, so it’s important they know about the risks of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) before then. Our specialists can offer you guidance on having this talk and discuss safe-sex practices with your teen.
We offer abstinence and contraception counseling and can present birth-control options.
We can talk to your teen about:
- Prescription birth control
- Implanon and intrauterine devices
- Emergency birth control
