We all know that there is not such a thing as perfect birth control. Many of us are prepared to take changes with birth control, but unless you are prepared for a baby, you should not really be doing so. It all depends on how you look at birth control. […]
How good is your sex life? For many, the problem starts with safe sex; safe is the key word here but what does one mean by safe sex?
You may look for a partner who is able to fulfill your sexual desires however, safe sex is a lot more than that. Safe sex is using the right precautions so that the woman does not become pregnant and the partners do not contract any sexually transmitted diseases or STD’s. It’s about making love the right way so as to avoid any problems later on.
A Partners Consent
The first part to having safe sex is having the consent of both the partners. If you do not want to wear condom and desire to have unprotected sex, it’s better to reach a consensus first. Do not let any sexual partner, man or woman, pressure you into having unprotected sex if you do not want to.
Taking the Precautions
Everyone should take the proper precautions, man or woman. This will ensure that you are able to thwart off any sexually transmitted diseases and still have the fun you want. Taking precautions does not mean that you will be hindered in your sexual activities. In fact, it can double the fun while ensuring that you’re safe. You’re much more likely to enjoy the whole experience if you are not worried about disease or unwanted children.
Taking precautions is important for a number of reasons. For one, it helps avoid the spread of infections. For another, you can ensure to some degree that the woman will not become pregnant. However it is important to note that condoms are not 100 percent effective so there is still a risk of pregnancy.
Having Sex at the Right Time
During a menstruation cycle, women are most prone to pregnancy before the ovulation period. If you do intend to have unprotected sex, it’s always a good idea to ensure that you have it when the chances of conception are really low unless your goal is to become pregnant.
It’s best to keep in mind that when you have unprotected sex with an individual you are also having sex with the last person they had sex with. If your partner is willing to have unprotected sex with you, chances are they’ve done the same thing with others (possibly many others). Wearing a condom keeps you both safe from sexually transmitted diseases as well as unwanted pregnancies, a win-win situation.
