When it comes to having protected s*x, the truth is that many people are more concerned about not getting pregnant than s*xually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Especially among young people who are not really very conscious of the implications of STDs, the focus is on ensuring that there is not repercussion 9 months after tumbling in bed nak*d.
While many people have turned to condoms for refuge, it must be noted that there are other ways a s*xually active couple – married or single, can prevent unwanted pregnancies from happening as discussed by The Health Site.
Though condoms have been proven to be 98% effective when used correctly, some people find them uncomfortable. Also, when there is a certainty that there are no STD risk, some people see no reason for a condom and then they use these methods:
(1) or*l contraceptive pills (OCPs) – these are also called ‘birth control pills’. A woman needs to take these pills regularly to prevent pregnancy. They work in two ways: some prevent the release of an ovum from the ovary while others secrete thick mucus that prevent contact between sperm and egg.
(2) Copper T – this is a type of intrauterine contraceptive device that is placed inside the uterus of the woman. The device prevents the implantation of a fertilized egg.
(3) V*ginal bolus – this is a large tablet that you can insert into the vagina about 30 minutes before s*x. The tablet contains a spermicidal compound that that prevents pregnancy.
(4) Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (DMPA) injection – this is an intramuscular injections that is taken every 3 months to prevent pregnancy.
(5) Morning After Pills – this is an emergency contraceptive method that is swallowed or*lly not more than 72 hours after the unprotected $ex happens.
All of these five methods are medically approved.
You can however speak with an expert if you are in doubt as to what approach is best for you. Meanwhile, use a condom!
