We have spent the first half of November saying “Thank You” to birth control but this Thanksgiving, we have a lot more to be thankful for! Here at TeenSource we made a list of all of the things we are saying “Thank You” for!
Condoms help prevent both pregnancy AND STDs! Condoms can also be used in addition to other methods of birth control like the pill or IUDs. If you live in California, you can pick up FREE condoms at a location near you by using our condom pick-up map. Teens in some parts of California can even get free condoms mailed to them! Find out where you can get FREE condoms!
When it comes to birth control, we are thankful that there are so many options! Be sure you find the one that is right for you. Remember, if your method is not working for you or your partner, try another one that might work better! We are also thankful that teens in California can get their birth control for FREE! Visit TeenSource or a clinic near you to learn about all of your options!
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to health clinics that provide birth control, STD testing, condoms, and lots of information! Clinic staff work hard to provide all of these important services while making sure your information is kept confidential, or private. Visiting a clinic is easy. Find a clinic near you to take advantage of all that they offer!
Did you know that teens have a right to access healthcare like STD testing and birth control for free and confidentially? That means that if you visit a clinic, your information should stay private and will not be shared with a parent or guardian without your permission. Teens in California also have a right to leave school to receive these services without parent permission, so they can stay safe. Learn about all of your important rights that we give thanks for!
