Why do people take birth control even if they’re not sexually active? As a male, how can I better support my partner in contraception? How do I even start talking to my teen about contraception? Do I need to if I just teach them abstinence?   Today we’re talking about these questions and more. Its all about contraception how to implement it, understanding it, and teaching it to our teens.   Rebecca Simmons  is one of the presenters of the RMSS this event, they will be presenting on Novmeber 16 on contraception and how it affects our choices in sexual practices.
