Remember that birth control methods such as diaphragms, IUDs, foams, and birth control pills do not stop you from getting STIs.

These are some safer sex things you can do to help avoid pregnancy:

  • Use some type of birth control every time you have sex.
  • Don’t drink a lot of alcohol or use drugs before sex. This can cause you to let down your guard. And then you’re not thinking clearly about safer sex.
