453

In a candid and insightful interview, Farrah Abraham, known for her role in the globally franchised TV shows “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom,” opened up about her journey over the past 15 years and her commitment to advocating for equality and inclusion in contraception.

Over a decade ago, Abraham kickstarted her career by sharing her deeply personal experiences, including her trauma-filled sex life, on Paramount Plus. Fast forward to today, at the age of 32, she stands tall in heels, not just as a television personality, but as a passionate advocate for sexual health and contraception.

Abraham, now a mother of a 15-year-old, is driven by a desire to set her child and others up for success. She keenly recognizes the importance of leveling the playing field in the realm of contraception. Whether individuals engage in sexual activity by choice or face societal pressures, Abraham believes that everyone, regardless of age or gender, should have equal access to non-hormonal contraception.

“For a truly better sex life, we need full accountability in many aspects. It impacts our health, longevity, educational goals, and relationships. The sky is the limit, and I’m beyond ready to deliver my message,” she passionately asserts. Abraham is not just speaking from a podium; she’s ready to take her message to legislation, using her lived experiences as a powerful tool for change.

Looking ahead to her next show on the A&E network in 2024, Abraham envisions a platform that allows individuals to heal from their past experiences and create a more equitable and inclusive landscape for contraception. Her life’s work, as she describes it, aims to align others in healing from fear, shame, blame, and rejection, fostering a world where individuals can have full access and accountability for trauma-free, empowered sex lives.

Abraham sheds light on a startling statistic: 68% of hormonal contraception is used for health diagnoses beyond family planning. Drawing from her journey, she wrote her New York Times bestselling book, “My Teenage Dream Ended,” providing a window into her hormonal contraception journey.

“I look forward to working with all the speaking opportunities on this topic and many more to come,” she declares, emphasizing her commitment to driving conversations around sexual health and contraception into the mainstream.

Reflecting on a question from a reporter about what advice she would give her 16-year-old self, Abraham responds that this talk, this active action, is her answer. She sees her advocacy as a means of reaching back in time to guide her younger self and countless others who may face similar challenges.

“I’m Farrah Abraham, the OG, the original girl, the greatest of all time Teen Mom,” she proudly declares, signifying not just her role in television but her resilience and determination to be a driving force for positive change.

As Farrah Abraham continues her journey, she emerges not just as a television personality but as a fierce advocate for equality and inclusion in contraception, challenging societal norms and championing a future where everyone has the opportunity to lead a healthy, empowered, and fulfilling sex life.
