Why is EVERYONE telling me to be careful and not get pregnant as if I'm stupid?

I'm 24 and I swear everyone at work, my family, friends, and roommates tell me to make sure to use protection like um im on birth control im not gonna have sex with my boyfriend with no protection. Why they keep telling me that?

  • Ya, sound naggy aren't they.

    Usually I take such remarks with a pinch of salt. I just tell myself, "they say out of goodwill" and I'll feel better.

    Finally, words like those your heard won't kill. In fact they saves. You're not stupid. And it's normal to want to show that you know.

    But since we can't control what people says, if it's all out of concern, then let's just be thankful. (Think this way will make you feel better.)

    86,000 teens aged 15-17 gave birth in 2019
    Nearly 1,700 teens aged 15-17 give birth every week
    About 77% percent of teenage pregnancies are unplanned
    4 in 10 teenage girls who had sex at 13 or 14 report the sex was unwanted or involuntary
    15% of teen pregnancies end in miscarriage

    • I'm 24 not a teenager

    • You are capable of getting pregnant until Menopause so your age does not matter. Lots of older women get pregnant even with their more lengthy experience.

    • I'm on birth control for 3 years already so no

  • because they are simply a little too much worried about you getting pregnant
    you are their daughter even if you don't want to, they feel responsible for your actions and they just want to protect you,
    although you are a person of your own action, it's your life, and you are grown enough to choose what is good and what is bad for your life, hear their advice and choose to accept or reject it
