Your Luck May Not Hold Out

A study recently looked at what happens to your decisions if you had unprotected sex and didn’t get either pregnant or an STD: turns out that will make it less likely that you will ever use contraception again!

But contraception and STD protection are important, as just because you didn’t have adverse consequences the first time you went without contraception.

The study in Contraception was based on questionnaire data collected in 2011 and 2012 from an eligible and responsive random sample of 45,361 women aged 18 to 45 residing in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Risk takers are more likely to take risks in the future, and these risks can set you up for longer term problems.

So what should you do: Come in to discuss what is the easiest, and the most effective, and would be the healthiest way to contracept!
