|Safe sex isn't just about avoiding STIs. It's also about making sure you don't end up pregnant by accident.|
The time to think about contraception is before you have sex for the first time. So let's start now.
Contraception isn't just condoms.
Because they're so good for preventing many STIs, condoms get most of the attention when safe sex is being talked about.
While it's true that condoms are also an effective contraceptive, they're not the only one. There's also:
- The pill
- Emergency contraception
(the 'morning after' pill)
