Did you know…
Even your smartest friends can get it wrong. Instead, talk to your doctor, school counsellor, or a trusted adult to get advice about sex. Birth Control Pills do not protect you from Sexually Transmitted Infections. So unless you are 100% sure of your partner’s health status and 100% sure of their loyalty, use a condom or other barrier to protect yourself.
If your condom breaks, or if you’ve had unprotected sex. See your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible and ask about “Plan B” which is like the “morning after pill”.
Guys can get the Gardasil vaccine too, so that they can be protected from warts and from passing on the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that can lead to cervical problems and cancer.
It is true that every Sexually Transmitted Infection found in the big cities has also been found among young people in South Surrey & White Rock. Use a condom or a barrier to protect yourself!
If you miss a period & think you might be pregnant, see your Doctor as soon as possible. Other things can cause a missed period – so you might be worrying for nothing. If you are pregnant, dealing with it right away can help keep your options open.
If you miss a pill, or vomit one, you will need a back up method of birth control for 7 days. Withdrawal is not reliable. Use a condom to protect yourself.
Plan your contraception (& your ride home) in advance. Alcohol and other substances can interfere with good judgment and can lead to impulsive choices.
You can get a Sexually Transmitted Infection from oral sex, or other kinds of sexual contact (not just intercourse). So, know your partner’s sexual history and health status, and use a condom to protect yourself.
