So you want to have sex but not make a baby?Well here’s how not to do that. Peeing after sex is not an effective formof birth control. The urine exits a different whole than the sperm enters. Douching aftersex is not an effective form of birth control. The force of douche being inserted into yourvaginal canal can actually propel those sperm toward your eggs. Ha ha ha, and that’s whatwe in the business like to call a douchebaby. Let’s do a little condom math. One condomplus one condom does not equal twice the protection. It’s only doubling your chances of those condomsrubbing together and breaking leading to what we in the business like to call a douche babynothat’s a different thing. This one’s a big
‘o’ myth: Orgasms are not required to getpregnant. Although that’s kind of sweet to think that in order for a woman to get pregnantshe needs to climax in fact she doesn’t have to at all. She can just get pregnant. Eventhough having vaginal intercourse the first time might not be the best sex you’ll everhave in the world you can get pregnant. Now on to everyone’s favorite conversation topicmenstruation. You can in fact get pregnant from period sex. Ovulation and your periodcan be timed so that if you’ve had sex on your period and sperm lives inside your reproductivecanal for up to 5 days, that sperm and that egg oh they can go, ‘oh hey, how’s it going?What’s up let’s fertilize. Let’s make a fetus!’
And that’s the magic of pregnancy. Speakingof menstruation even if a girl has never had her period it’s still possible for her toget pregnant. For some girls they will ovulate before their first period. So if they havesex during that ovulation, they can get pregnant and since they haven’t had a period and won’thave a period because they’re pregnant it’ll probably take longer for that pregnancy tobe detected. Some women are hesitant to use certain forms of birth control because ofmisconceptions about them. IUDs do not cause miscarriages. The way that IUDs or interuterinedevices prevent pregnancy from happening is by either killing the sperm which is whatcopper IUDs do or by blocking the sperm from
entering the uterus which is what hormonalIUDs do. They do not and I repeat do not induce miscarriage. When it comes to the morningafter pill or emergency contraception, a lot of people get this confused with a medicatedabortion and they are not the same things. The way the morning after pill works is thatit kills whatever remaining sperm that are living inside of you, which is why you’resupposed to use emergency contraceptive up to 5 days after unprotected sex or if you’vehad an incident where you suspect that ejaculate has gotten inside of you. Hence it is a contraceptiveand not an abortifacient. For the same reason that I beat the drum about the importanceof sexual consent I wanted to debunk these
myths not to make sex scary but to make itmore enjoyable so that while it’s happening you can devote more of your brain space toahhhh, sex and less of it to OMG, pregnancy! Educate yourself. Be fun, have safe, blah,blah, blah laughing. This is what sex looks like people. It only twices laughing. 9months later farting sound. They do not and I repeat do not laughing. Myth busted.Busted. Busted. Sex baby, talking about you and me, talk about dancing in the club. Thisis not an effective form of birth control although it is an effective form of gettingpeople to not want to have sex with you probably. Same with this. You want to do it? No? Okay.You want to do it? No? Okay. See, consent.
How Hard Is It To Get Pregnant
We’ve all heard the horror stories, theteenage couple gets pregnant the first time, or gets pregnant without doing it all Ã laScrubs. but really, how hard is it to get pregnant? Hey guys Julia here for DNews As more men and women push back their biologicalclocks to match up with their professional ambitions, fertility issues seem to be onthe rise. But the thing is, it’s pretty easy to getpregnant. Especially if you’re in the prime biological age range, which most researchersagree for women is between 2035 and men too
experience a decline in fertility as theyage. And before you ask, yes you can get pregnant the first time you have sex, yes you can getpregnant standing up, yes you can get pregnant if you have sex on your period, yes you canget pregnant even without ejaculation! Among couples without fertility problems,60 percent will be pregnant within three months, and 75 percent within six months. About 85percent of all couples will get pregnant within a year, but it’s not all sunshine and rosesand babies. Besides age, the weirdest things can affectyour fertility. Like research from the from the Norwegian University of Science and Technologyfound that women who work out too much can
have reduced fertility. In a large study ofnearly 3,000 women researchers found that those who train or exercise everyday and thosewho train until they’re exhausted had lower fertility than other women. Smoking is another fertility damper. One studypublished in the journal Obstetrics Gynecology found that women who smoked produced lesseggs when undergoing fertility treatments. For every 10pack years of smoking, womenproduced 2.5 fewer mature oocytes and two less embryos. And multiple other studies backup the smoking and fertility issues link. Water bottles too can affect your chancesof getting pregnant. BPA stands for Bisphenol
A, can be found in a lot of plastic things,like receipts and water bottles. The chemical helps plastic be more flexible keeps it frombreaking. Unfortunately, it leaks from those products pretty easily. Like into your waterin your bottle. Several studies link BPA exposure to troubleswith conceiving. One study published in the journal Human Reproduction found a link betweenwomen’s exposure to the chemical and lower fertility. They found that women with higherlevels of BPA levels produced less eggs during fertility treatments, like 24 percent fewereggs. But it doesn’t just cause problems withwomen. One study found that men who had high
levels of the chemical experienced a 20% declinein fertility. Basically the chemical mimics estrogen and lowers men’s sperm count. And men should be wary of another factor,summertime. Another study published in the journal Reproduction found that men seemedto have trouble during the summer. In a study of over 2200 men, researchers in the UK foundthat men who produced a lot less sperm, were twice as likely to have produced that sampleduring the summer. And the researchers aren’t so sure why that is, some think it might haveto do with sunlight. Sperm is produced a few months before it’s released as ejaculate,so that sperm sample given during the summer
might have been made a few months before whenit was dark and grey in England. So maybe the lack of vitamin D had something to dowith lower sperm count. More research is needed. So if you are trying to conceive, avoid smoking,plastic, summer, and some studies say to avoid tight whiteys too. And no matter your troubles,researchers say â€œthe most important thing for people trying to conceive is having alot of sex.â€� And once you are pregnant it seems there’sall these rules and weird superstitions, to separate fact from fiction, check out thisgreat tutorial on the top 5 pregnancy myths.
