Welcome to Youth Embassy
Teens Only Ask a Question Parents Resources


  I am just curious...my boyfriend and I just started having sex. We always use a spermicidal lubricated condom plus I'm on Ortho-Tri-Cyclen. If anything was to go wrong...how would I know if there was a rip or hole in the condom? And honestly, we're very careful and safe...so with the 2 methods of birth control, should I worry? Do you have any suggestions to make me any safer?

Dear Crys,

We are delighted you are so sexually responsible!

With responsibility comes the benefit of not worrying about some of the potential side-effects of intercourse. By using birth control pills and condoms, the chance of a pregnancy or STD infection are slight. Enjoy and don't worry as long as you continue these very responsible practices!

Congratulations to you!
