MORE than half of the women polled in a research study say they were not given a solid education on birth control.
A whopping 56 per cent said they were not taught well about contraception - while one in two also felt they were misinformed about sexual health.
A total of 2,000 women aged 18 to 50 were surveyed by OnePoll on behalf of the birth control Paragard IUD.
The poll found that 46 per cent never had a "sex talk" with their parents, but those who did (38 per cent) were about 12 when the chats took place.
Additionally, 54 per cent of those who had a parental sex talk were given a book about bodily functions.
A third of the women who had a sex talk with their parents were shown an "awkward" video, while 46 per cent said their parents used euphemisms to explain sex.
More than 60 per cent said their parents told them what sex was, but less than half were taught about birth control.
The average respondent had a sexual education class in ninth grade.
About 20 per cent said they never learned about birth control at all, while 16 per cent said they were taught by their parents and 14 per cent said they learned in school.
