  I bought a box of Trojan Ultra pleasure lubricated with spermicide and I'm also on the birth control pill. Am I safe as can be when I decide to have sex?

Dear Suzie,

When you use more than one contraceptive method, you take out an additional insurance policy. Using spermicide AND condoms would be more effective than using condoms alone, and MUCH more effective than using spermicides alone. However, condoms alone, are very effective at preventing against unplanned pregnancy and most sexually transmitted infections.

If you are using birth control pills correctly in addition to condoms (using condoms each and every time you engage in intercourse) the chances of a pregnancy are extremely low, and the condom, again, provides excellent protection against most sexually transmitted infections.

We congratulate you on your responsible behaviors and for taking such an interest in your health and future!
