You are pretty much guaranteed to get
pregnant... well... maybe...
- Withdrawal Method
This is totally risky, and quite frankly, not
worth it.. is about as good as using no birth
control at all.. It can also get somewhat messy..
but that is cool :)
Not only is it a great birth control
method, it is the ONLY thing
that can give you protection from sexually
transmitted diseases, so use them! Don't use
anything but latex condoms with a water-based
lubricant, which are the strongest, and most
The first times my lover and I used condoms, our
lovemaking was anything but satisfactory... he
couldn't feel much and it wasn't that great for
me either. However, over time (I guess its just a
matter of getting used to them) the condom
experience improved drastically! I've had some
amazing orgasms during condom sex.
Condoms can also tend to be a pain in the ass,
since you have to interrupt foreplay to put it on
before making love.. However there are ways you
can make it completely erotic! Try putting it on
with your mouth...
- The Morning After Pill, or Emergency
I've used this method once, and I was
pregnant at the time, so it naturally wasn't
effective. My ex-flatmate owever, has used this
method several times and has not fallen prenant
once. It's just a very high dosage of the pill
that will interrupt the fertilization process by
altering the wall of the uterus so that a
fertilised ovum cannot lodge there, and thus
prevents you from getting pregnant.
Because it is a post-coital method of
contraception, it is also known as an
abortifacient. Some stories are also going around
that the morning after pill will lead you to
having deformed children later in life. THIS IS
NOT TRUE.. so don't believe it. If this were the
case, simply being on the pill would mean you
would have deformed babies later on. My doctor
said it was a safe method of contraception that
could be used every 72 hours if needed.
When I took it I was violently ill, however not
all women react this way to it, and usually
they'll give you anti-nauseua tablets along with
it, althought they don't always help. It really
should be used in times of emergency.
