A recently reported medical study that showed that 1,000 girls are using contraceptive pills at the age of 11 has sparked a lot of concerns. But, the GPs who took part in the medical study feel that this should not alarm people, as many girls are taking these pills for medical reasons, as well.
However, there are some who feel that the easy availability of these pills encourages underage sex and it can also lead to an increase in teenage pregnancies.
The oral contraceptive pill is also used for treating heavy periods, acne, endometriosis and side effects of cancer. It also helps young women to deal with various other conditions and is important to understand the benefits of these pills. They have argued that it is wrong to assume that most of the young girls are using these pills for contraceptive purposes.
Health experts have also argued that media plays an important role in promoting sex among youngsters. They feel that media needs to be more mature in the way it portrays sexual content to the young audience.
Education experts also support that sex education must be provided to young children and they should have the correct information about sexual matters. Parents can also play an important role in imparting correct knowledge to their children.
But it is important that the whole society also takes a more reasoned approach towards this issue and it will be in interests of everyone.
