There are numerous myths and misinformation about contraception that women are unaware of. Many women believe that unprotected period sex cannot lead to pregnancy, which is false. So, in this video, we'll debunk some of the most common contraception myths.
No, never use more than one condom at the same time. Using two condoms provides less protection than using one. Why? Using two condoms can cause friction, weakening the material and increasing the likelihood of the condoms breaking.
Because viruses like HIV live in menstrual blood, you can not only catch a STI during your period, but you can also more easily transmit one to your partner. Wear a latex condom every time you have sex to reduce your chances of becoming pregnant and contracting a STI.
