Why You Need Contraception
Many women don’t realise how easy it is to get pregnant. There are 16.7 million unplanned pregnancies around the world every year and most could have been prevented with the correct use of contraception.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first time, you only occasionally have sex or you only have sex on the so called “safe days”. If you are having unprotected sex , you can get pregnant.
Coitus interruptus (withdrawing before ejaculation) is not as safe as you think. In fact, it is the least effective contraceptive method with 22 in 100 women who practice this method getting pregnant every year (that’s 22%!).
And remember, if your period is 2 weeks late, regardless of whatever contraception you are using, talk to your doctor. You may consider doing a pregnancy test. Pregnancy is ALWAYS a possibility.
