as much as I know, if you don't make small holes with your nails condoms really protect. And yes using cheap condoms is not good. I heard that they have no use ;)

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).


Condoms help to prevent fluid-transmitted STDs. But you still have to worry about things like herpes and genital warts which can be transmitted from skin-to-skin contact.

If you're worried about pregnancy, guys should use a condom and girls should be on the pill or some other contraceptive. If you're worried about STDs, both partners should be tested (blood and urine) before hand. I think it's a good idea if you've found someone that you know you will have a relationship with to go ahead and get tested anyway. Most insurance companies will cover the test, and the small amount of inconvenience is definitely worth the peace of mind. Even if the test is not covered, I believe the 50-75 dollars spent on a test is a small price to pay compared to contracting an STD!

If you use calendar method it would be easier to conceive!

I’m so happy!!!!! I wish you were as happy as me!
I’m pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used calendar method, because I was going to have one (or two) more child. Maybe it is not as comfortable, but child’s health is more important for me than my own laziness. As girls say “14 save days monthly - and NO side effects at all”. And I used some programs calculating ovulation. Must say I like JX Ovulation Calendar most of all. I have it for 1.5 year. When my goal was to avoid pregnancy – I did and then I tried to conceive a boy – and I’m pregnant!!!!!!!! (I don’t know the gender yet) So I think the program good for me and it’s lucky!
Of course it was God’s blessing!
I wish you good luck!!!!!!!!! I love everybody!!!!!!!!!!

For male, spermicide is inserted within the condom, while in female, spermicide is added in the diaphragma to trap spermatozoa from entering uterine environment 8)

It seen that, if popullation density is high and any natural desaster occur at that place (Earthquake,tsunami ect.) death number is high as compare to low density areas.

And

Diseases are seen to be getting more and more fatal as time is passing.
I belive, this is natural control of human popullation as no other predator or controler is present in world.

Thank you...

I DON'T support birth control. I believe in sexual intercourse in its most pure and raw biological use: Procreation and nothing else. The human brain has the capacity to resist hormonal influx unless both the male and the female are sure that they want to bring a new life in this world. All this pleasure crap doesn't fit well with me :? :evil:

Sex can not be done only for "reproduction". That's meaningless.
