May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, and young mothers from both "Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant" are doing their part to help drive awareness about the consequences of unprotected sex and realities of unplanned parenthood. Maci Bookout spoke candidly with MTV Act about missing out on her youth, and Mackenzie, Katie, Lindsey and Briana from Season 4 of "16 and Pregnant" are featured in a video encouraging peers to take responsibility for their futures.
In her Act interview, Maci addressed the misconception that she and other MTV teen moms lead glamorous lives--it's the complete opposite, which is why she continues to speak publicly about her personal experience and initiate conversations about contraceptive options. Farrah Abraham, who's getting ready to release a memoir entitled "My Teenage Dream Ended," regularly does the same. The chef and model recently filmed a sex education-style video, in which she delivers copious amounts of health information to her fans. From the importance of visiting the gynecologist to her own personal STD scare, the "Teen Mom" cast member runs through the A-Zs of intimacy, highlighting the impact that being comfortable with yourself--especially your anatomy--has on your well-being.
