Dear MizzB

I am 16 but feel as if my life is over.

I went to the clinic a week ago to get contraceptives, as my boyfriend and I are sexually active.

We always argue about using condoms.

My problem is I got the contraceptive injection and still fell pregnant. How is this possible and what can I do?

Dear Girl

Having mixed feelings is understandable and you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself, as people will judge you.

Contraceptives can take anything from five to 14 days to be effective.

This is why it is still important to use condoms for prevention and protection against unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.

Talk to your parents to get their support and guidance in making important decisions about your future.

Accepting yourself over this won’t end your dreams.
