Negative Pregnancy Test
When a woman suspects she might be pregnant, it’s a great relief to receive a negative pregnancy test result or to start her period. The immediate crisis is over, and many vow to never let it happen again. This promise can be fulfilled through abstinence (or secondary virginity)! Contrary to popular opinion, people don’t go crazy if they abstain from sex. In fact, abstinence is an option that thousands of young people are choosing today.
Here are just some of the benefits of this commitment:
- Abstinence is the only 100% effective method to prevent pregnancy.
- You won’t contract a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI).
- You will be spared the heartache and pain that sex often brings to an unmarried person.
After a negative pregnancy test, some women become more intent on using contraceptives to prevent future pregnancies while continuing to be sexually active. However, few realize that many women still get pregnant even when using the pill or other birth control methods.
Some young women confess they don’t even enjoy the sexual encounter but agree to it because they seek closeness and to feel loved. Men can sometimes push for sex as a means of “showing” love, leaving the woman feeling obligated, despite deriving little pleasure outside of the embrace. What they don’t realize is that they deserve the best sexual experience, which ideally exists within a committed marital relationship.
Sexual activity outside of marriage has serious risks besides pregnancy, such as Sexually Transmitted Infections/Diseases (STIs/STDs), which impact thousands of young people each year.
When you give the most precious and intimate part of your body to someone who isn’t serious about the relationship, you risk ending up alone with a broken heart. Anyone who truly cares about you will be willing to wait and not pressure you into sexual activity.

Making informed decisions about sexual activity and understanding the consequences are critical steps in protecting your physical and emotional well-being. Abstinence, or choosing not to engage in sexual activity, is a valid and effective choice that guarantees prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). It also spares individuals from the potential emotional distress that can accompany uncommitted sexual relationships.
For those who have experienced the anxiety of a potential unplanned pregnancy, it’s an opportunity to reassess personal choices and consider the benefits of abstinence. It’s essential to remember that you deserve a relationship based on mutual respect and commitment, and that true affection and care do not necessitate sexual involvement.
We encourage you to continue educating yourself on these matters. Whether it’s understanding the effectiveness of different birth control methods, the emotional aspects of sexual relationships, or the implications of an unplanned pregnancy, knowledge is your most powerful tool. And remember, should you find yourself facing uncertainties or difficulties related to sexual health or pregnancy in the future, support is available. We at Positive Choices are committed to providing you with the necessary resources and guidance to navigate these challenging situations with confidence and clarity.
