Q about keeping track of days/ natural fam planning
« on: April 28, 2004, 11:42:43 am »

I really don't want to ask this here. I don't feel like this question belongs in this site. But I've been banned from another message board b/c I asked this question and the moderator said I was too young to be asking and now I can't post there If any of the mods have a problem with it please PM me, I don't want to get "banned" from this site too.

OK, if my b/f and I do it unprotected for about half way then he uses protection to finish. What are the chances of me getting pregnant from that first half we went without any protection?? I've always thought it to be a 50/50 chance but I don't know.

I wouldn't say a 50/50 chance - just that the chance increases. After all, it is quite possible to fall pregnant even using a condom correctly - or the pill for that matter. And it is obviously not uncommon for unprotected sex not to end in pregnancy. (hmmm, that worked right, or were there too many negatives?)

The usage of a condom however is not just as a contraceptive, it's also used as a barrier against infection. I would suggest using it from the 'beginning' - however that's just my personal advice. Perhaps it would help if you talked to a doctor? (though I can see why you'd have misgivings about that)

Out of curiosity - why were you considered too young? It seems like a perfectly reasonable question to me.

Use one from the beginning. You shouldn't really be goin on percentages, more on that you have a much higher chance of getting pregnent if you don't use one from the beginning.

I was "considered" too young by the mod of that site because I am not 18, I'm only 17 (well almost 17 ) She said that minors were not allowed on the site and all I know is that I know of plenty other minors on that site as well and if it's only for 18 yrs and over then why was I allowed to even register!?!? She said that I should go to a teen sex site and that I was too young to be having sex anyway. So I was kicked off.

Ummm....my b/f and I have always used condoms, we've never gone unprotected. We both know that neither one of us has an STD so we're not worried about that. But we both have said we don't really want to use condoms anymore, but we know we have to since I'm not on the pill and I don't want to be pregnant until I'm married! that we have no other choice. But he said that we could try first without one, then he could put one on and we could 'finish'. I know that you technically can get pregnant from pre-*** I just don't know what the chances are ya know? And I don't know if I want to take that chance if it's high. Thanks for the help.

Personally, I think that mod was looking at it from the wrong point of view. Yes, your young, but atleast your asking!! I think its a perfectly reasonable question.

Is there any particular reason that you don't want to use condoms anymore? Even if you know neither of you have an STD, is it worth the risk of getting pregnant? I wouldn't recommend doing what you're doing, purely because there are things you can't control. There isn't such a thing as full-proof birth control, and by not using one, you're making the risk bigger.

If you don't like condoms, I recommend the pill. Its the most effective birth control I know of. Though, if your parents don't know you're sexually active that might arise problems. (If you really want it, you can get it by asking your mom to take you to the gyno. Your doctor won't tell your mother anything you don't want her too.)

Hope that helps.

They shouldn't have kicked you out because you asked that, its for your own protection (and your boyfriends, and your potential kid's)

Well, I wouldn't sugest doing that because if you "start" and accidentlly "finish" your in trouble. I would sugest going to the gynecologist if you really don't want to get pregnant though- the pill is more effective than a condom (though still not 100% of course.)

The pill also clears up a lot of other stuff. It makes your period practically nothing and clears up acne/oily skin. (And there's a nifty way you can skip your period!)

The pill is great.. I'm on it right now.

BUT if I were you I would still use a condom no matter what. Believe me, the risks are a lot higher than you might think, & unexpected pregnancies are NO FUN. Think about how much it would change your life. It's just not worth it.. & sex is just as fun with a condom as it is without.

Alright then. You've helped me make my decision. The only reason we wanted to not use condoms anymore was to have that closeness, ya know, without that barrier. But I guess we'd better be havin that barrier since I don't want to get pregnant. I don't really want to go on the pill because I've heard it can mess you up. Like my b/f and I have talked about it already. I want a big family and I've heard that some woman who have been on the pill for so many years then try to have children can't...or if they can they have a really hard time of it. So I guess I've made a choice. Thanks for posting...I appreciate it. you've helped a lot

Hang on...

As far as I know, contraceptive pills haven't been shown to cause infertility later in life.  The #1 cause of infertility is the contraction of an STD.  If she was on the Pill, then perhaps she engaged in more unprotected sex and contracted HPV (a virus that doesn't have symptoms in men, but may cause cervical cancer and infertility in women).  If you've had unprotected sex with four partners, you have something like an 80% chance of having contracted it.

Or maybe she waited too long to have children.  Fertility begins to decline after age 27 -- many women cannot get pregnant once past their mid-30s.

And DO use protection along with the Pill.  The Pill is only effective so long as you take it **absolutely** correctly, meaning you take one pill each day at the EXACT same time each day.  Not fifteen minutes late or early, or an hour early or later.  It is VERY hard to keep up with that regimen, and unless you do it, then you're increasing your chances for pregnancy.

In other words, it's still important to use a condom.  As much as you love your boyfriend, men DO cheat, and unless you've both been tested for STDs, you never know what might happen.  You have to protect yourself.

My friend and her boyfriend are about to have a baby because of unprotected sex. She had also heard the rumor that taking the pill for a long time might cause problems when trying to have a baby. So she got scared and went off it, then she got preggo. She's only 21...I know it could be worse but for her she didn't expect to be pregnant at 21. She wanted to do a ton of other things but now with a baby they have to go on hold.
I'm the same age and I can't even think about being pregnant right now, I want to finish college, live in NYC, go to London, work on broadway, and get married before I have kids...If I got pregnant now a lot of that would be down the drain for me.
It's a scary concept huh?

O_o

Abstinence! Protection! and stuff.  I forget what they teach kids nowadays.

Birth control.  Use it.  Condoms are a safe bet, and pills, the patch, whatever.  Just remember not everything is 100%.  there is always that .1% chance the the birth control fails.  Subject of a Hugh Grant movie once, I think.  And of course, abstinence is the best way to prevent pregnancy, but since you're not going to, do be safe.

Pre-cum has millions of little sperm in them, just like the regular does (or is it billions?) so you can very easily get pregnant by only using a condom only part of the time. I suggest using the condom the whole time.

If your guy's precum has millions of sperm in it, tell him to go to the doctor to have his plumbing checked!

Sometimes, after a guy ejaculates, sperm can be left in the urethra; I believe they can "live" there for 6-8 hours.  If your bf masturbates within 24 hrs (to be safe) before sex, any residual trapped sperm may be pushed out by his precum when he's with you.  But the precum itself doesn't have sperm in it; it's just a lubricant.

Mmmkay, I think I've just established myself as A&F's Dr. Ruth.  Oh God.
