Alcohol and teenage pregnancy

Last week Children's Secretary Ed Balls was quoted in the Telegraph as saying that there is a link between binge drinking, having unsafe sex and teenage pregnancy.

We know that alcohol plays a part because young people tell us that it does. We also know that PSHE is not universally established and young people’s services are not as available and as high profile as they should be.

While we need to address the impact of alcohol we must not get sidetracked from building the foundation blocks which are still not in place everywhere: good PSHE, good outreach work, high profile visible young people’s services and strong youth services.

Good education will make the link between alcohol and sexual risk taking - Brook has a publication, Drunk in charge of a body, which helps professionals to do exactly that.

Yes, and our youth need to be made aware of the severe permenant health afflictions, all alcohol is capable of dealing out, as it sees fit !
Many of us are perservering in our attempt to have Government Officials, pass legislation on mandatory health warning labels on all liquor containers.
Lets just hope we'll eventually succeed, preventing at least 50% of our youth from these incurable illness's.

Viagra promises to return the sexual element in your life but before consuming this medicine you must understand the drug and mentally prepare your self to deal with ED. As you overcome the psychological aspect the physical side is automatically taken care off. http://www.viagraforce.com

hello friend very very interesting blog about Alcohol and teenage pregnancy, this topic is very important because the pregnancy in younger is very critical problems, I want to add this information about Most pregnant women can enjoy sexual intercourse throughout gravidity. Most research suggests that, during pregnancy, both sexual desire and frequency of sexual relations decrease.In context of this overall decrease in desire, some studies indicate a second-trimester increase, preceding a decrease. However, these decreases are not universal: a significant number of women report greater sexual satisfaction throughout their pregnancies.
Sex during pregnancy is a low-risk behaviour except when the physician advises that sexual intercourse be avoided, because it may, in some pregnancies, lead to serious pregnancy complications or health issues such as a high-risk for premature labour or a ruptured uterus. Such a decision may be based upon a history of difficulties in a previous childbirth. I would like to know if you have some blog about how can I Buy Viagra??? I really need this information, thanks for collect and post this information
