A new initiative is being pushed in the UK to encourage teenage girls to use longer-lasting methods of contraception such as implants, injections, and coils, according to a recent article in the Daily Mail. Since so many people use condoms incorrectly and/or forget to take their pill, the Department of Health believes teenagers are safer using an alternative method to prevent pregnancy, but will that deter them from using condoms all together? Will this increase their chances of contracting STIs? Of course being safe and protected against disease as well as pregnancy is key, so do tell: Do you think this initiative is a good idea or do you think it runs the risk of backfiring?
