Contraception is the term used to describe all the different methods used to
prevent conception. If you plan to have a sexual relationship, then you have to face
the responsibility of becoming pregnant. Statistics have shown that 80% of
teenage girls who have sexual intercourse without contraception will fall pregnant.
The Catholic Church perspective does not allow any unnatural methods of
contraception at all because it prevents the creation of human life.
