Condoms

I'm really afraid,my boyfriend and I were having oral sex and fooling around, after that we had anal without a condom and he came on my butthole, should I be worried about stds or any disease if it just happen once, what checkups should I do?

Having sexual intercourse without a condom can put you at risk for STIs.  

You can schedule an appointment at Corner health 734-484-3600 or with your health care provider to be tested.  Be sure to explain that you need to have rectal swab testing.

I want to have sex but I’m afraid I’ll get pregnant. Since no contraceptive is 100% reliable, if we were to use condoms and the withdrawal method at the same time, what are the chances of getting pregnant then?

If you use condoms perfectly every single time you have sex, they're 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. But people aren't perfect, so in real life condoms are about 85% effective — that means about 15 out of 100 people who use condoms as their only birth control method will get pregnant each year.

 

It would be a good idea to schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider to talk about more reliable methods of birth control such as the IUD, or Nexplanon (arm implant).

 

Using condoms will prevent you from getting a sexually transmitted infection.

I know I shouldn't be doing this, but yesterday my bf and I had anal and right after vaginal sex, we didn't change the condom, I'm really nervous about that, what risks I should be worried about, I went to the bathroom immediately after and we were both clean but I'm really worried, should I go to the gynecologists right away? Or what should I do?

Using a condom protects you against sexually transmitted infections.  

You may be at risk for other infections that can be transmitted from the rectum to the vagina which is why it is recommended that you change condoms. 

If you have any symptoms such as vaginal discharge, burning with urination, abdominal pain you should schedule an appointement with your primary care provider or come to Corner health center.  

On the last 6 months I had sex with my ex boyfriend and now with my new boyfriend,we are really careful and are on birth control, I want to know if we should take any tests to make sure we are healthy concerning our sex life and also me as a woman what tests should I take just to be sure.

You and your new boyfriend should schedule appointments to both be tested for STIs.  Testing includes urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia and blood test for HIV, syphillis and hepatitis.  Using condoms will prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. 

I had sex with my boyfriend around November 3rd with condom on and he released it outside so there were no semen near my vagina. However, I havent had my period since around October 21st. And I am getting anxious about getting pregnant because i’m only 19.

By what you describe it sounds very unlikely that you would have gotten pregnant.  There are other reasons for periods to not come on time.

If your period is more than 2 weeks late you should schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test and you should see your health care provider to start an effective method of birth control.

if i have sex with my boyfriend and only used a condom, and it didn't rip or anything. Am i safe of pregnancy or should i be worried?

If you used a condom correctly and it did not rip it is 98% effective.  That means that for 100 women who used condoms 2 would get pregnant. 

That means you shouldn't worry if it was used correctly. However, if your period is ever more than 2 weeks late you should have a pregnancy test. 

If you are looking for a reliable form of contraception, schedule an appointment  at Corner Health Center or with your health care provider. 

I want to have sex with my boyfriend, what are the precautions that we should take, so we can enjoy it and be safe?

Good to hear that you are thinking about safe, enjoyable sex. 

You will want to use a reliable form of contraception (birth control)  to prevent unplanned pregnancy.  There are many types of contraception available.  You should schedule an appointment at Corner health or your doctor to learn more and pick the method that is right for you.

Also, you will want to prevent any infections that can be transmitted sexually.  Use of condoms will prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections.

Hey guys! I want to know how do I know if the condom I am using with my bf is broken, what precautions should I take,besides taking birth control.

Usually, a broken condom (whether it’s a regular latex condom or one made of polyurethane or polyisoprene) will have an obvious tear that guys can feel and sometimes both partners can even hear when it happens. But sometimes a guy won’t notice it’s broken until after he pulls out. So it’s important to take a second to make sure you don’t see any holes or leaking semen before the condom comes off.

If there is any concern that you may have come in contact with a sexually transmitted infection you should schedule an appointment  to be tested at Corner heath or your regular doctor office. 

Hey there! I am 21, I had a blowjob once in my life and the guy fingered me, but I have never had intercourse (sex), all my friends have told me that the first time hurts a lot and also that you bleed, is it true? Is there a way that I can prevent the pain and the bleeding, or is something out of your control?

Everyone's experience the first time is different but most women experience bleeding and discomfort the first time. Discomfort may be less the more relaxed you are and use of a lubricant may help also.  There is no way to prevent it but you can plan ahead by protecting the space with towels or pads for easy clean up if needed. 

Don't forget condoms to prevent STIs and schedule an appointment  with your health care provider to discuss the birth control method that is best for you.  

 

What are the steps that I should take to have safe sex and to not worry about STDs and pregnancy?

Condom use is recommended every time you have sex if you want to protect yourself from STIs (sexually transmitted infections, same as STDs, sexually transmitted diseases) .  This includes protection against Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, Hepatitis B and C, HPV and HIV/AIDS .

To prevent unplanned pregnancy there are many forms of birth control available. Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or your health care provider to see what method is best for you.
