A lot of us, even the stars, have gone through times when we ask ourselves what’s happening to my body. One of these stars is actress Jessica Biel.
When she was trying to have a baby with husband Justin Timberlake, Biel said she was confused about what was going to happen and admitted she didn’t know what to do.

“I’ve been on the Pill for so long; how hard will it be to get pregnant?”
“Suddenly I realized I really didn’t know what’s going on inside my own body,” Biel told Glamour. The feeling of not knowing what's happening was a shocking experience for Biel.
Now, the actress has partnered with WomanCare Global founder, Saundra Pelletier to release a series of videos on sex education about menstruation and contraception.
These videos will help women and girls to understand what their bodies are going through during puberty, when they use contraceptives, have sex, and when they are pregnant.
“We want girls to know what their body is going through so they don’t feel scared or ashamed or gross,” Biel said.
Most young women nowadays are not comfortable talking about these kinds of topics but Biel believes that giving women the right information with the right venue will let them know what to do with their bodies and encourage them to share what they learn from the videos with others..
Jessica Biel shared her experience when she first got her period in elementary school, an embarrassing moment that included a pad “the size of a skateboard.”
“More than half of our nation’s pregnancies are unplanned, and just 22 states require public schools to teach sex education,” Saundra Pelletier said. “Jessica and I realized we can help change this.”
Jessica Biel is not the first celebrity to release sex-ed videos, celebrity mom Gwyneth Paltrow also has Goop and Blake Lively has Preserve.
