Postby dan_i » Tue Nov 15, 2005 4:46 am

Okay here is a broad topic? what do you think of the side effects of birth control. Is the pleasure worth the risk? :wink:

I say it could be worth the risk, what if the woman wants to be cautious in the world, its better to be safe than sorry sometimes, and it depends on how you look at birth control, they type your using and side effect it brings

People don't make love just to have babies. So of course birth control is needed.
There are side effects of some birth control methods. But not all of them have that. Plus the side effects of birth control is far less then the complications of having abortions.

If you are worried about side effects, use a condom. It has absolutely no side effects and protects you from STD's(just in case your innocent new girlfriend ain't that innocent ;) )

Uhh. Condoms keep 99.99% of the sperm inside it. 0.01% usually gets through because of the size of the holes in the condom. Fortunately, this severely reduced the number of sperm, reducing the chance of getting pregnant by 99.9%. And these numbers are only this low if the man "pulls out" right after he releases. The chances of pregnancy increases greatly if he wats to pull out. (It also increases the risk of the condom coming off before he does so and the condom gets "lost" inside the woman. This has happened many times!)

Unfortunately, viruses are hundreds to thousands of times smaller than sperm cells are. Condoms do not protect from STD's as well as one would think.

It has no effect to the male but it could have effect to his partner e.g. irritation and allergic reaction. Just do not by cheap condoms :)

Interesting, do you have any refrences on this? because as far as I knew, condoms are effective to prevent STD. This is to said if you handle them correctly and do not make any holes in them (with nails usually, and the holes are not always big enough to be seen).

:wink: Even if your inoccent little girlfriend really is inoccent you should still use a condom because there is always a chance that they may be a carrier for a std. So unless you have had atest done and you know that niether one of you has a std and you really want kids than use a condom. :twisted: Everyone knows what a carriers is right :?:
