BBC News Stories on Sex

The BBC ran two stories on sex. One shared a study showing natural family planning to be as effective as birth control. Participants needed much education on how to properly avoid sex during the woman’s most fertile period. Sex education was the focus of the second study.

It showed 18% of people had zero, as in no sex education. Over 12% of 3,800 students aged 13 to 16 had frequent unprotected sex. That leaves some 400 children at risk of unwanted pregnancies. Will natural family planning work for them? How many teens carry a thermometer in their purse?
