Dear He Puts The Condom On Right Before He Ejaculates,

 

The way that you and your boyfriend are using condoms is NOT the safest choice for two reasons:

1.      The first is that you are increasing your risk of becoming pregnant by using the condom in this way rather than using one from the first moment you are having intercourse. There is sperm in pre-ejaculatory fluids, and men generally cannot tell when they are emitting these fluids. By waiting until just prior to ejaculation to use the condom, there is no protection against the sperm in the pre-ejaculatory fluids – so it is possible that pregnancy can occur. In addition, it doesn’t always work for the guy to stop intercourse just before ejaculation – he might not pull out in time. Finally, by using this method, you have NO control over your birth control – you are relying completely on your boyfriend, which is not the best idea either.

2.      Second, during the time you are having unprotected sex, you and your boyfriend have no protection at all against the transmission of STDs.

FX generally recommends that teens who choose to be sexually active use condoms each and every time they have vaginal, anal, or oral sex (from start to beginning) to help prevent the transmission of STDs as well as unwanted pregnancies, as well as a back-up method of birth control such as the pill. FX suggests you speak with your doctor about the best safer sex methods for you. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-6475 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
