The relief and excitement had to have been thick in the air when the first real birth control rolled onto the market. Birth control is what two sexes, mainly women use to prevent or stop the risk of STDs and pregnancy, depending on the specific kind. There are several more options or methods of birth control today than they were many years ago when the first method was given.
In 1839, Charles Goodyear produced the rubber condom that still had a very high risk of impregnation. Now condoms have a 99.9% rate of effectiveness. When used in combination with other forms of birth control, your chance of getting a girl pregnant is virtually zero.
Choosing the Best Option
Things have came far from those first rubber condoms. Now we have female condoms, daily or monthly pills, birth control shots, contraceptives, and even minorly invasive methods of permanently stopping reproduction for both men and women. Choosing the right one may be one a little confusing because all bodies are different. Whenever picking one out, follow these guidelines: how often are you having sex? Are you and your wife ready for a kids? How long do you plan to wait? How sure are you you never want a child?
Wrap it Up
Whatever you do, keep your sex life safe and healthy. The better we care for our bodies, the better your sex life will go. Keeping it safe by always using some form of birth control helps prevent any unplanned pregnancy, but what about STDs? Even if your hookup is on the pill or has an IUD, always wear a condom when you’re uncertain of someone’s infected status.
Although, it is a much needed thing, birth control has countless risks. Though it works on preventing pregnancy, it might not prevent sexual transmitted diseases from being transferred. Those who stick with one partner should wear condoms in the beginning, but if the woman uses a birth control pill it’s alright to forgo them if you’ve both been faithful.
If you happen to be a more promiscuous man, please be careful with multiple sex partners. Look for signs of sexually transmitted diseases and always use a condom. Even if you aren’t concerned about pregnancy, protect yourself from STDs by using condoms every time you have sex with a new partner.
BC for Women
As awkward as it can be for you to ask your sex partners what birth control they’re using, it’s always important to make sure that if you absolutely can’t have sex with a condom ready, you do know the woman you’re sleeping with is on birth control. This can be a pill, a shot, or an implanted device. If you don’t want a surprise child, never have sex without at least one form of protection.
Make Sex Safer and Longer
There are a few little ways to make your sexing and love making feel a little better while using condoms. Typical condoms can feel odd, so try to mitigate this sensation. Guys, grab a few of those bare skin condoms. When your lady arrives, before you guys get busy use some lubrication for you and her to massage your bodies. There’s nothing like a massage from her as you start to get aroused. Another tip? Use some flavored and edible lubricant for some oral fun.
Shaving and Lube
Don’t think that condoms have to put a damper on your sex life. Another way to make sure you’re feeling every part of the sexual experience is to trim or groom your public hairs, as well as have your partner do the same. Shaving or waxing your private parts and body can be very beneficial for you to really feel every touch on every inch of your body.
Always keep a condom in your wallet. Emergency contraceptives are needed for those occasional slip ups. You’re going for a sex-a-thon, but your condom breaks – what will you do? Though your lover might be on birth control, that morning after pill comes in handy just in case. Don’t be afraid to pay for it if necessary.
Thank God, man, and science for birth control. What better way to keep the world running than with a safe, healthy, and stress free sex life?
