You’re describing a situation in which a man and a woman are using two forms of birth control: the withdrawal method, which involves a man pulling his penis out of a woman’s vagina before he ejaculates, and the birth control pill, which involves a woman taking a hormonal birth control pill every day.
It sounds like you two just walked into a room and took your clothes off. Though that might be exciting for some people, many men and women find that spending time in foreplay helps them to feel more aroused. Foreplay can help men to get an erection and it can help women to lubricate or become “wet”.
Pre-ejaculatory fluids do not contain any sperm. They are clear fluids that come from small glands inside of a man’s body. These pre-ejaculatory fluids are released into a man’s urethra when he becomes aroused and they help to lubricate the urethra.
Men cannot reliably squeeze all of their semen out of their penis. Sometimes it trickles out a few moments later. Also, there may be sperm that are further down and then, when he is inside you and gets aroused again, his pre-ejaculatory fluids may sweep up the sperm and carry it outside his body and into your vagina.
Plan B – also called the morning after pill – is a highly effective means of birth control when taken within a few days of unprotected sex. If it has been less than 5 days since you two had unprotected sex, you can ask your healthcare provider for more information about this option.
A woman may be more likely to experience vaginal dryness if she is stressed, taking antihistamines or if she has just taken a warm shower or bath. Women who are breastfeeding also tend to be more prone to vaginal dryness.
Considering how rare it is for young men and women to have received comprehensive sexuality information in school or from their parents, it’s not surprising that many people are curious about what exactly happens when two people have sex.
Earlier this week, I blogged about the potential of a birth control pill for men. Now, it seems that women might be undergoing “vasectomy-like” procedures in a new form of sterilization that reduces the healing time and risk normally associated with female sterilization procedures like tubal ligation (also called having your “tubes tied”.
Lambskin and other natural skin condoms are certainly one alternative to latex condoms. While it is true that some men experience more sensation during sex when using a natural skin condom, this benefit comes with a cost.
When I teach human sexuality classes or guest lecture about sex in other professors’ classes, students always ask for tips about how to talk to their partner about sex. We all get it: talking about sex is critical for safer, more pleasurable sex. But how do you actually do it?
When I first started taking the birth control pill last year, it was just to make my period regular – I wasn’t having sex. Now I am thinking about having sex, but I’m not sure when it’s safe to do so. Can I have sex at any time without getting pregnant as long as I take the pill? Or do I have to wait a while first?
