Hello all you lovely people!
This Thursday, SEC is hosting a great workshop about contraception. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to get informed on all the options out there that will help keep you safe from STIs and babies.
Unless you want a baby. But I don’t want a baby, so I think this is pretty cool.
Let me tell you, there are A LOT of contraceptives out there. Some might work for some people better than others, it all depends on your medical history, as well as personal preference, so it’s important to get properly informed to find what will work with you the best.
As a fun little “did-you-know” I will now present you with some fun facts I’ve learned on this subject since I’ve been working with SEC. Students of UTM have recently been surveyed about the methods of contraception they use most often and the stats have come out with the 4 most common methods of contraception used by the students here at UTM.
1. Male Condom. I wasn’t very surprised about this one. Condoms are a very effective way of avoiding unwanted pregnancy and STIs, and you can pick some up for free at SEC and the HCC!
2. Birth Control Pills. This is also a great way to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. For best effect, it’s important that the pill is taken at the same time every single day. However, it needs to be known that the pills won’t protect you from STI’s, so it’s important that you take extra measures to prevent it.
3. The Pull Out Method. This one surprised me. In high school we were always warned about how dangerous this is, but if you know what you’re doing, this method is actually pretty effective. So if you are going to use this method, there are two things you HAVE to do. Ladies, know you cycle. Study that thing, and make sure you know exactly when you are going to be ovulating so that you can avoid unprotected sex during that time. Gentlemen, you have to be in control of your little friend down there. Knowing exactly when you are going to climax is crucial so that you can properly pull out. And, obviously this won’t protect you from STIs.
4. Abstinence. The only way to stay 100% safe, is to not do anything at all! This method is guaranteed to save you from STIs and unwanted pregnancies!
So there you have it, the top 4 methods the kids at UTM are using to avoid parenthood. And there are so much more!
