Teen Mom Felicia Cooke Says She Wishes She'd Used Birth Control

16 and Pregnant star Felicia Cooke says she doesn’t regret having her daughter, but she wishes she’d waited until she was older to become a mom. It’s sad to hear, but maybe her story will help other teens to avoid making her mistakes.

Felicia Cooke, a teen mom who appeared on a riveting episode of the hit MTV show 16 and Pregnant, has a confession to make: She wishes she would have had safe sex.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood fears for baby Leah’s safety!

Asked in an interview with Radaronline.com what she would have done differently about her situation (she and the baby’s father, Alex, have a rocky relationship), the teen mom of a little girl named Genesis opened up and said,  “Yeah, I would have used protection so I didn’t get pregnant.”

The now-17-year-old teen mom, the first person in her family to graduate from high school, continued, “I don’t regret having a daughter, or being a mom and taking care of her, but I wish I had waited, so I could be spending my teenage years like I should be.”

Amber confirms Leah is living with Gary–but she hasn’t abandoned her baby!

As she said on the MTV show, “We used a condom like twice ever in our relationship.”

On her formspring account, the Honduras native, who got pregnant after dating her boyfriend of a year and a half, stated her beliefs, writing, “i dont believe in abortion at all i m the one who went out there and thought i was old enough to be having sex and this is wat happened so i believe i should take care of my responsibilities and grow up.”

So what do you think, HollyMoms? Why are so many teens these days not practicing safe sex? We think it needs to start with education both in the home and in schools. The more young men and women know about safe sex, and also the risks that come with having unprotected sex, the better off everyone will be (well, maybe not MTV, who is making a killing off this hit show).

Hi,Felicia i think your a beautiful person and a wonderful mother i give you alot of credit for taking care of your baby plus going to school.And what really bugged me was that Alex couldn’t be there to support you through your school and to help you out with his own baby.Because friends come and go your kids don’t so he needs to put his friends to the side and put his babygurl first cuz she will always be there not Alex’s friends….Well that’s good you finish school cuz very few go back to school once they get pregnant our after they have there baby.i give you a A++++!!!!!Good luck in the future and wish you all the best treasure your baby with your life cuz she’s gorgeous!!!!GOD BLESS YOU’LL……..
