Boyfriend Stopped Using Condoms For Ridiculous Reasons

Published: May 14, 2012
Dear TeenHealthFX,
I've been having sex with my boyfriend and at first we were using condomns. Now, however, he stopped using them because he said that he masturbates before and that all the sperm is in the first and second nut, and therefore there is no chance of me getting pregnant. I found this absolutely ridiculous, but i just wanted to make sure that this is false...please help!

Dear Boyfriend Stopped Using Condoms For Ridiculous Reasons,

 

TeenHealthFX finds this absolutely ridiculous as well! If a male and female have sex (unless one or both of them is infertile or the woman has gone through menopause) there is absolutely the chance that pregnancy can occur. If your boyfriend doesn’t feel condoms are necessary for him, you can’t change his mind for him about this – but you do not have to go along with it either. You need to stay strong with what you feel is necessary for you – that you are going to use a condom each and EVERY time you have sex, and that, ideally, you are going to start on some kind of back-up birth control method, such as the pill or patch. You need to be strong and clear with your boyfriend that he has two choices with you: have sex with a condom or don’t have sex at all. There is no reason you should put yourself in a risky situation because of someone else’s ridiculous notions, false believes, or ideas that are different from yours!

 

If you have any further questions about pregnancy and birth control issues, please meet with your primary care physician, adolescent medicine specialist, or gynecologist. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-6475 for an appointment or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
