Dating violence is something that affects millions of people each year. It can be a touchy topic to discuss, especially with a loved one when you do not want to step on their toes.
When it comes to a violent sexual relationship, often times teens are pressured into not using contraception and thus being forced into an unintended pregnancy. That can be dangerous for the parties involved as well as the child. If you or someone you know is suffering from this situation reach out and find help – a counselor, domestic abuse hotline, a doctor or any trusted adult can help guide you or a friend in a safe direction. YOU and YOUR SAFETY (including your sexual health) is most important and using a condom each and every time you have sex will prevent transmission of STIs and unintended pregnancies. SAFE SEX is the BEST SEX so protect yourself.
