ARE YOU REALLY PRACTICING SAFE SEX?
10 things that everyone should know when it comes to condoms.
We all know that abstinence is the single best way to reduce the risks of both unwanted pregnancy and contracting an STI (sexually transmitted infection). We also know that none of us would be here if abstinence was a realistic form of birth control so let’s talk about the next best thing, condoms. Not including abstinence, condoms are the single best way to reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancy while simultaneously reducing the risk of contracting or transmitting an STI. Even with perfect use, condoms are not perfect but how many of us are really even using condoms perfectly? Did you even know that there is a wrong way to use a condom? Pull up a chair, because the Twin Doctors are about to share with you 10 things that everyone should know when it comes to using condoms!
Remember, “safer sex” practices are about more than pregnancy prevention. Safer sex is about protecting yourself and your partner from life altering and potentially life-threatening infections and with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reporting a rise in STI for a third year in a row, safer sex is now more important than ever!
