Finding the right form of protection is extremely important. Birth control describes any thing you might do to prevent pregnancy.
Use a condom every single time you have sex. Being on “the pill” prevents pregnancy but provides no protection against disease.
Tips for preventing pregnancy and staying safe
- Although preventing pregnancy is an important part of birth control, preventing sexually transmitted diseases is also important.
- Despite the convenience of condoms, they fail to prevent pregnancy more than 10% of the time, particularly when not used correctly. This makes finding an additional form of birth control extremely important.
- Planned Parenthood is an organization that provides women with free birth control - no questions asked. For more free information call 1-800-230-7526.
