Playing it safe

Safe sex or no sex.

Your thoughts (301)

Choosing to have sex is a decision that only you can make when you feel you are ready. And once you make that decision, you need to think about how to have sex safely.

There are many ways you can enjoy safe sex, you can use contraception such as the pill, implant or injection.

These are great for preventing unplanned pregnancies. But if you want to prevent unplanned pregnancies AND keep yourself safe from getting a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), you can use condoms.

Practicing safe sex isn’t only about contraception. It’s just as important to know your status by getting tested regularly for HIV and STIs.

You can get tested on your own or you can go together with your partner if you’re both comfortable with this.

When you and your partner are open about your status it can create trust and you can also feel good knowing that you’re protecting your health and someone else’s.

The great thing about contraception is that it puts you in charge of your health and depending on where you live, you can do this for free.

Yep! Some clinics and hospitals give out condoms for free and you can also get the pill, implant or injection for free as well.

The pill, implant and injection are known as hormonal contraception. This type of contraception works by preventing ovulation, this means that your eggs will not be fertilised by sperm so chances of you getting pregnant are low.

But this type of contraception doesn’t keep you safe from STIs. Only condoms can help prevent you from getting an STI and also unplanned pregnancies.

When it comes to choosing contraception, pick one that suits your needs and your lifestyle. If you’re unsure or confused you can always talk to a nurse, doctor or a pharmacist for clarity.

Let’s recap:

  • the decision to start having sex should be made by you.

  • choosing to have sex safely can keep you healthy and reduce the chances of transmitting STIs, including HIV, and prevent unplanned pregnancy.

  • if you have any questions or concerns, you can talk to a nurse or doctor who will be able to advise on the best birth control option for your needs.

i took injection in april and had protected sex on June and i manstruated in July i had unprotected sex and i haven't seen my period ... is there a possibility that i could be pregnant? how much time does it takes for the injection to be completed in the body ?

Actually, most women will experience irregular bleeding at some point in their life. A period showing up unexpected or delayed does not always mean something serious is going on. But your period showing up whenever it wants can be stressful. Your period may show up earlier than expected, or not show up at all. Here are the most common causes that can cause a delayed or early period thus causing an irregular menstrual cycle: – Medication – Stress and anxiety – Puberty ( When teens first start having periods, their menstrual cycles may not always be on the same schedule every month.) – Extreme exercise or dieting – Hormonal birth control such as contraceptive pills or emergency contraception – Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) ( This medical condition causes tiny cysts to form on ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation)

Hi Springster. It's okay if you drank it two hours later but it works more effectively when taken around the same time. I would suggest you set an alarm on your phone as a reminder so that you never forget to take it even when you're distracted.

Heyy guys, I really need your help. So me and and a guy had sex yesterday, and we used a condom and when we were finished he removed it and i saw him make a knot at the end and his sperm was inside the condom. Now today we had a huge fight and now I'm stressing that I might be pregnant, is this even possible or am I just paranoid?? Please help..

March 20, 2022, 9 p.m.

Latest Reply

Hi Springster. Don't panic. It's advisable that a knot be tied after the condom is removed so that the condom doesn't leak after engaging in sex. You mentioned seeing sperm in the condom so it's highly unlikely that you're pregnant.

I totally don't think you are paranoid, just wait for your next circle and see if you have your period , if not , I wound advice you to go and see a doctor.

Hi Springster. Thanks for your question. You are not required to be accompanied by an adult if you want to explore contraceptive methods. Just go to your nearest clinic or doctor and ask about contraceptives like the pill, IUD or injection and they'll be able to advise you which one is better suited for your needs. Good luck

Hi Springster. You’re so brave for asking this question. Many girls and women are uncomfortable or scared to ask about our bodies and sex. Sex isn’t supposed to hurt or cause bleeding. When this happens, it’s your body’s way of saying “hey, I need a health check.” Sex becomes painfully when you’re not getting enough lubrication. This the moisture that our bodies produce naturally when we’re having sex. Lubrication shows that your body is aroused. Still, our bodies are different, so sometimes you may be aroused and yet remain dry. Try using a water-based lubricant, which is safe to use with condoms. They’re sold at Clicks and pharmacies.

Hi Springster. I'm uncertain as to which contraceptive method you're referring to but you should know that anytime you're having unprotected sex you run the risk of falling pregnant. So to stay safe from unwanted pregnancy, STIs and HIV i'd recommend you utilise condoms which you can find for free at the nearest healthcare provider near you.

Hi Springster, anytime you're engaging in unprotected sex, you're at risk of becoming infected with an STI or becoming pregnant. I would advise you go to a clinic or doctor. You will be tested for HIV, which comes with a counselling session given before and after testing. If you’re results are negative you will get Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP). These are pills given to reduce the risk of getting infected with HIV. PEP is taken twice a day for 28 days. It’s recommended that you get tested again after completing the PEP. HIV doesn’t often show up for the first three months of infection. You also have to consider other STIs. It takes 1 to 2 weeks before the signs of infection show. So, you will need to go back to the clinic to get tested, and if you test positive for an STI, the doctor or nurse will be able to advise you what treatment you need.This might sound scary but don't panic, the medical professional will advise you on what to do next.

Sex isn't a trend that you should have because everyone is having it. You must be emotionally ready for it. Know what's needed for you and your partner to be safe. Don't do it for your friends because at the end of the day if any mistake happens when you doing it,you'll be the one to face the consequences. Do a self introspection first then decide on what to do. BE SURE THAT YOUR ARE READY.

Hi Tlotliso. Thanks for your comment. Don't panic. You're not meant to be doing things at the pace of your friends. When you're ready it will happen and you'll be better prepared then. I agree with Becca4. You need to know what is needed for you and your partner to be safe, don't let peer pressure have you making rash decisions. Good luck!

I have just recently started being sexually active ,I want to play it safe but i know using condoms only may be risky. I want to start preventing but I don't know how to go about doing so.

Hi Springster. If you don't tell your friend how you feel then she won't know. Communication (which also involves listening) is an important part of any relationship. Tell your friend that you're unhappy, that you want her to put in as much work as you're putting in and tell that you want her back. Prepare yourself for the fact that she may not agree with everything you say or feel - listen to her and the two of you can work on a way to be better friends to each other.

Hi Springster, don't panic. This could just be a side effect of your contraception. But this seems to be a persisting problem and you should consider seeing a doctor again.

Hey Springster, thank you for your comment. Hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the injection) are not the only way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. You can use a condom as well. The condom prevents both unwanted pregnancies and STI's including HIV. If you are still keen on using hormonal contraceptives, you can go to a private doctor. It will however not be free.

My bf and I had sex right after my periods were done. Im panicking because after two weeks I started to feel different.We always had sex without a condom and I know its risky but he always pulls out. But this time I feel really different. My breasts have been hurting alot and my tummy is bloated and Im always hungry and Ive been feeling Nauseous.

Hi leah_15.com. Thanks for your question. Masturbation is touching yourself intimately for pleasure. You will get to know your body better. A normal part of growing up is developing romantic and sexual feelings. Once you get to a certain age, you begin to feel things differently than you’ve felt them before, you’re more aware than usual, your skin is buzzing in spaces you’ve never felt before, and you don’t know why. This is called puberty.

Hi I was using injection and gained more weight so I decided to stop it hoping that it will get of my system and I will go back to my normal body size..... will I get my body size back now that I have stopped using it? and is it true that am not supposed to exercise until my mensuration cycle is back to normal?

March 20, 2022, 8:59 p.m.

Hi Springster, one of the side effects of certain medications is weight gain. You may have to think about eating healthier (if you aren't) and exercising. When you are a teenager your body is changing and your weight can go up and down. Just focus on building healthy habits and finding joy in the little things.

Hey friends so I want to prevent ( injection ) but my mom id against it she doesn't know that I'm sexually active and I wanna be safe........ Should I do it without her knowledge or should I not?

You can visit your nearest clinic or doctor and they can give you a professional medical opinion on birth control and you can decide which you would like to use.

Hi Fafa and TMAN. Thanks for sharing your comments. The pill can be very effective if taken correctly, at the same time everyday and making sure you aren't taking medications like antibiotics which lessen the effectiveness of the pill. TMAN Although this is unexpected, there are places and people who can help you, so don’t panic! The sooner you get help the better. Go to a clinic or doctor and tell them that the condom broke. You will be tested for HIV, which comes with a counselling session given before and after testing. You also have to consider other STIs. It can take 1 to 2 weeks before the signs of infection show. So, you will need to go back to the clinic to get tested.

Hi Springster, if you are on birth control or considering it you should the label and the pamphlet in the box. In the side effects section it will tell you if the side effects of that birth control causes weight gain. Which some do.

U said that the decision of having sex is made by urself,if some one raped,is his or her decision?

Hi Springster, the definition of rape "unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent." Rape is never the choice of the victim.

Hi Springster, sounds like he's just trying to manipulate you into having sex and he seems to also be saying he doesn't trust you. If you aren't ready to have sex - don't. The only time you have sex is when you want to and understand all the responsibilities that come with having sex like understanding the risks of pregnancy and STIs, contraception and getting tested for HIV regularly. If your partner can't accept your decision, it means he doesn't respect you.

Your boyfriend must respect you, if he don't believe you that's not your problem If he carries on with this filthy attitude, baby girl dump him

guys can I ask shame is there anything wring if you having protected sex or having sex is a disgrace!??

TBABY , don't give up on going to the doctor until you are better . The pills he gave you the first time might have not been strong enough and he/she wont know if you do not go back to give him/her feedback and say its still going on . And don't wait another 2-3weeks to go back because it will cause other problems in the future

No you cannot because a loop is another form of birth control and it lasts for 5 years meaning it's like you on contraceptives for 5 years

Hey Tay24, every women's body responds to contraceptive differently. It's likely that your body is responding to the change in hormones that your contraceptives have brought about. This is nothing to worry about because it's totally normal. You should visit your nearest clinic or doctor for a check up and they might be able to prescribe something for you.

can I ask, does the injection change your body in anyhow

Hi Browny121, it's totally normal for you to not be menstruating after taking the injection. Some women skip their periods entirely while on contraceptives, just because taking birth control changes up your hormone levels. iAlthough what you are experiencing is very normal, you should go to your nearest healthcare provider or doctor to find out more about how going on the injection can change the way your body works.

Hello Springster It is a good thing that you would like to protect yourself.Please go to the nearest clinic or doctor and explain to them your situation.They will be able to advice you on which ones you can use as they are proffesionals.

Hey Springster, the first place to start is at your nearest healthcare provider or doctor. They will give you an option between the pill and the injection and will explain to you about how different brands will affect you and your body. Go as soon as you feel ready and ask as many questions as you feel you need to.

Hey Psycho101, it's really important for us to understand the consequences of our actions when we choose to do something like deciding to have sex for the first time. It's good to know that you know that you feel ready to have sex. This means that you've thought about the emotional implications that might come with having sex, the health risks (like possibly contracting HIV/AIDS and other STI's) and that you are willing to be responsible enough to use a condom every time as well as contraceptives. For you, another risk is disappointing your mom. This is a difficult one, but if you choose to have sex, you might have to deal with the fact that your mother wouldn't be happy about it, which is pretty normal. There are a lot of things our parents would not want us to do that we do anyway. If you still feel hesitant, perhaps talking to a trusted adult, like a relative, a teacher or a school counsellor, would help. In the end, it's your choice. Good luck with your decision Springster. Remember to always reach out for help or advice if you need it and get back to us when you feel ready.

Hey Kea190, the right time to have sex is when YOU feel ready. Saying no might seem impossible or scary right now and the only reason you'd want to do it is to keep your partner happy and that’s not okay! Write down a list of reasons why you’re not ready, like being scared of pregnancy, being unsure about your feelings, or wanting to wait until you’re little bit older, and practice your answers. Let’s say he says you should do it if you really love him. What do you say to that? Try this one: if you loved me, you would respect my decision to wait! If you feel like you have more questions to ask you can call Love Life on 0800 121 900 or send them a ‘please call me’ on this number 0 8 3 3 2 3 1 0 2 3.

Hey Springster, it is normal for some people to experience discomfort when using condoms during sex. There are a few reasons for this. One of them is that it could be an allergy to latex which is what condoms are made from. If that is the case then you might want to consider using a different condom brand to the one you are currently using. There are various options available at the pharmacy or stores such as Clicks and Dischem. Another reason that could be causing discomfort is a lack of lubrication during sex. There are lubes available which can either be water or silicone based. These are also available at pharmacies and stores like Clicks. Lube reduces friction and pain during sex. Also keep in mind that irritation during sex may be the result of an STI so it's important to visit a clinic or doctor just to make sure that everything is okay down there. Condoms prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV so it's important to always practise safe sex.

Sweetheart am a man so i will advice u to buy a Durax liqud to use wen u dry to avoid frection n alwys know that its not easy to practiz good thing but its easy to do bed thing, u must learn to use condom otherwise u will die b4 ur tym come, think for ur family bcz they need u more than u think.

Hey Springster,when it comes to sex, communication is key. We don't recommend you have sex with an older man, but we do think you should ask him what the problem could be or if there are any problems at all. He could be going through some things, but the important thing is that you ask him what the issue could be.

It's a long complicated story but I found and a new boyfriend and he found a girlfriend too,about last week we bumped into each other at a mall and we decided to have coffee just to catch up and talk about our wellbeing and coping mechanisms but that wasn't a great idea because later that day he had an emotional breakdown and it got too bad that his parents got involved.He Said seeing me and having to talk to me made him realise what he had lost and it broke him because he loves Me so much but now he lost me to someone else and it's too much to bare so I feel so bad I feel as though it's my fault all of this is happening but I honestly admire my new boyfriend and I'm not planning on going back to my ex boyfriend so I don't know how to help him without ruining my current relationship but I'm not at peace and it hurts to be the cause to someone else's breakdown.

Hey Raylorlove, when you are on contraceptives your hormones work to prevent your eggs from being released. Without an egg to be fertilized, the sperm will be inactive. Don't worry, nothing gets damaged inside your body. Also, the fact that you are on contraceptives is great, but you need to also wear condoms to prevent yourself from getting things like HIV/AIDS or other STI's. This is very important.

Hi I'm 17 and a virgin. I'm overweight and always wearing t shirts that doesn't show a cleavage, I'm really ashamed of myself because I can't even have sex with my bf because I know I will be a turn off to him. My peers have perky beautiful breasts as I don't, what's wrong with me what is so different about me

Hey Chiara, we are all different shapes and sizes and no body is more beautiful than the other. It takes time to accept yourself for the way that you are and we know this because, everyone, no matter what size they are, has issues with confidence and self-esteem. Remember that sex is better when you feel good about yourself, so give yourself some time to love yourself and be comfortable in your own body. Of course, the decision is solely up to you as well. Good luck Springster, let us know how it all works out in the end.

I am in a balanced diet I weight 32.so be urself and tell ur bf how u feel

Kiki! there is nothing wrong with you and body shaming yourself is not a good thing you'll end up hating yourself and you'll also loose you're self esteem.if that bf of yours loves you and always telling you how beautiful you are then I don't see a reason for you to be not open and free around your man.

Hey Springster, these are common side effects of the injection and some other forms of contraceptives. Please go visit your local clinic to explain the side effects you are experiencing. We are sure they will be able to provide you with the correct treatment for what you're going through.

Hi Ahlume, depending on what brand of the injection you were using for prevention, it can take some time for you to get pregnant even after you have stopped using it. Talk to a nurse or doctor from your nearest healthcare centre about the type of contraceptive you were using and its effects and whenever you want to know if you are pregnant, buy a home pregnancy test at your nearest supermarket or visit your doctor to get you tested.

Is it normal to be on prevention injection and not go on your periods? I'm worried now coz the condom burst, while I was on prevention. But now it's been a month and 3 weeks I haven't been on my period. So is that the side effect of prevention? Or I may be pregnant?
