Is it just me or does it seem that there are a lot of women that don't understand this?
I was lucky that in Junior high I had a science teacher twice that taught us Sex education and did so very well. You didn't leave his class thinking that you couldn't get pregnant the first time, or that you only needed to use birth control when you are ovulating.
A friend of mine got pregnant and is was upset that her birth control 'failed'. She was using condoms and she only used them when she thought she was ovulating. You have to use them every time you have sex. Also In my book if you really don't want to get pregnant then you should be using another method as well.
I don't get it. When I started seeing my first boyfriend not only did I read all kinds of books on birth control and sex, I called the 1800 numbers on the products I was using to make sure they were going to be used correctly! Not to mention the questions I had for my doctor.
I know some women find this ghastly, but I've never let a man put a condom on himself. I used the ones I had. I'd open them up and put them on to make sure they were rolled all the way to the base and that the air was out of the reservoir tip. That and I knew that these condoms had not been left in a hot glove compartment in a car! Don't get me started about STDs.
I'll get off my soap box now, but what some people seem to believe to be true about birth control and sex education scares me.
Edit: I know that birth control methods are not 100%, I'm not talking about actual birth control failure. I'm talking about when women are upset that they got pregnant when they didn't use it every time, and didn't use it correctly, or if only one method was used.Answer Question
