How old were you the first time you had sex?
If you were a teenager when you "lost it," did you do it because you wanted social status or peer acceptance? For love? Was it your idea, or against your wishes? Or -- did you try it because you thought it might just feel really good? Like, you know, warm apple pie?
Chances are good that if you had first-time sex under the age of consent, it wasn't for reproductive reasons (though it's a typical unintended consequence. Ask Bristol Palin.) With your hormones in teenage overdrive and senses reeling, it's likely it was the pleasure principles, and not moral family factors, that had you dropping trou before you were barely legal.
